The Julius Baer Graduate Programme lasts eighteen months and comprises three six-month assignments. In addition to practical work, the programme includes focused training sessions on technical and social competencies. You will learn about our company’s value proposition and gain detailed knowledge of our banking business.

Julius Baer offers four graduate functions in front or back office positions (Private Banking, Advisory Solutions & Investment Management, Business Management or Information Technology).
