BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. As a global investment manager and a leading provider of financial technology, our clients—from grandparents, doctors, and teachers to large institutions—turn to us for the solutions they need when planning for their most important goals. To achieve this, our workforce must reflect the diversity of our clients so that we can bring a wealth of perspectives and insights to solve their unique, complex challenges.

We already know that the best solutions result from the ideas and contributions of a diverse team of partners, and that more diverse teams tend to outperform homogeneous ones. But it’s not enough to focus solely on building a diverse workforce. We take it one step further and ensure that each and every employee feels included, respected and valued – that they belong. We are building a culture of innovation, curiosity, and compassion, one that enables every employee to make an impact.

Are you passionate about building and analysing investment strategies, portfolios and products? Women of the Markets provides an in-depth look at how BlackRock serves clients and meets their evolving needs. Join this three-day insight event for female students, to learn more about who we are, what we stand for and what it means to be part of the world’s largest asset manager. Participants will engage in talks, workshops, and networking events to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to build a fulfilling career. There will also be the opportunity to be considered for one of our 2023 early career programs.

This accelerator event will take place in our London office on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th October, and virtually on Friday 7th October 2022. Participants selected for the accelerator must be available during all three days.

Candidates should be graduating from an undergraduate or master’s degree program in 2023 or 2024. We welcome applications from candidates studying any degree subject.

As part of the application process for this program, you will be required to fill in a short application form and submit a virtual cover letter to express your interest. You will have 5 calendar days from the time of application to complete the virtual cover letter part of the process. You will be notified of the outcome of your application towards the end of September. Please note that alongside your application to Women of the Markets, you will also be able to submit a second application to one other program you are eligible for (e.g. Analyst Program).
