When we’re recruiting we look for people who we believe will thrive in this environment, prioritizing quick thinking, passion and communication skills above specific qualifications. So whether you’re still at school, a recent graduate or have been working for a few years, if you’re excited about the potential of working at Goldman Sachs, we’re interested in hearing from you.

Teamwork

At Goldman Sachs we talk a lot about teamwork, but what does that actually mean? All our business units are made up of teams from different divisions, often working across multiple offices. Within those teams everyone has their own areas of expertise but the overall responsibility for the project is shared.

For this to work all our people have to be able to work flexibly and collaboratively. This creates a flat organizational structure, where everyone’s point of view is valid (even the newest intern) and ideas can come from anywhere.

Leadership

Our distinct corporate culture is one of the things that set us apart from other firms. We expect everyone at the firm to be a contributor; no one is just an employee. This is why we make an unusual effort to identify and recruit people who, in addition to their intellect, share our commitment to leadership in business and to the communities where we work and live. A degree in business or finance is not necessary, but seeking out great opportunity and responsibility is. At Goldman Sachs, everyone has a place at the table.
