We are committed to investing in our employees and helping you continue your career at Scotiabank. 



Position Highlights: 
Analysts in Investment Banking enjoy a stimulating and challenging work environment in which they execute a broad range of transactions.  A high degree of responsibility is afforded to those demonstrating initiative and the desire to take on such responsibility.

Scotiabank’s Power & Utilities Investment Banking team is a leading renewable energy investment banking platform.
