I joined Lazard as a young analyst in London more than 25 years ago. My journey to CEO of Financial Advisory has been filled with generous and thoughtful colleagues, inspiring teamwork and endless opportunities to learn and grow. We continue to offer our new joiners that very same rewarding workplace and career path today.

Early Careers Recruitment Programmes in the U.K.


Working collaboratively with senior colleagues and inspirational leaders, Analysts will have the opportunity to offer strategic and financial advice to our clients in iconic businesses, governments and investing institutions. Unlike many of our competitors, Lazard's unique structure with smaller deal teams provides Analysts with increased accountability, responsibility, visibility, and direct interaction with senior bankers and clients right from the very beginning. We are looking for individuals who are analytical, intellectually curious, enthusiastic, driven, hardworking, and eager to learn. 


Our 10-week Summer Internship programme is an excellent way of gaining a better understanding of the nature of our business and the culture of our firm in an Analyst role. Specifically, our aim for your internship with us is for you to receive first hand, in-depth knowledge of the business, gain practical Analyst experience, understand Lazard's culture and working style, and for us to provide an excellent networking opportunity with bankers of all levels of experience. Our programme commences in late June and is open to undergraduate or postgraduate students in their penultimate year of study. 


Our London office offers a unique and organised 12-month industrial placement experience starting in August/September 2024.


Our three-day programme consists of a number of interactive banker-led sessions based on Lazard transactions, as well as a number of skills workshops.

Career Development for Professionals


Lazard has a strong apprenticeship culture and providing our junior bankers with the tools they need to succeed is a priority for the firm.

Lazard guides and develops its people toward individual and shared success. We are dedicated to providing the experiences, mentorship and resources you need to learn and succeed. All our bankers are allocated a “Career sponsor” and “Mentor” who play a key role in providing ongoing guidance about an individual’s career development.

Training courses covering technical skills and interpersonal skills are offered across all levels. These sessions are designed to develop and practice skills essential for your role and to ensure you are equipped for success every step of the way. We host Lazard Lunch and Learn sessions on a monthly basis, providing a mix of case studies, market updates, and invited external speakers to share their learnings and knowledge.

In addition to ongoing technical training via our European Professional Development Programme (EPDP), we offer our Analysts the opportunity to learn from more senior bankers:

Mentoring Circles: A six-month programme where first-year Analysts learn directly from Associates during monthly breakfasts on practical skills to support their integration into the business. Topics include: Communication Skills; Attention to Detail; Presence Positivity & Impact; Time Management; Finding your voice/Opportunities to speak up; Building Relationships.

Financial Advisory Peer Coaching Programme: Our second-year and third-year Analysts are invited to participate in this coaching programme that inspires them to take ownership of their careers. This is a three-month programme that gives our Analysts access to more senior colleagues and provides the opportunity to learn from peers.
