Career Opportunities

Goldman Sachs believes that collaboration, teamwork and integrity creates the right environment for our people to deliver the best possible results for our clients. 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 are excited about the potential of working at Goldman Sachs, we are interested in hearing from you.

Teamwork

At Goldman Sachs we talk a lot about teamwork, but what does that actually mean? For us it means that we share responsibilities together in everything we do. For this to work our people have to be able to work flexibly and collaboratively. This creates “an inclusive” and flat organizational structure, where every point of view is valued (even from the newest intern) and ideas are weighed.

Leadership

Our unique culture is one of the things that set us apart from other firms. We expect everyone at the firm to be a contributor; not just an employee. A degree in business or finance is not necessary, but seeking out great opportunity and demonstrating responsibility is.
