Why work for Scotiabank?

Scotiabank is a leading bank in the Americas. We are powered by our 97,000 high-performing teammates who make a real difference across the globe as a leading provider of advice, products, digital experiences, and financial services.

This is a place where you’ll get to learn and develop your skills, while being recognized for your hard work. At Scotiabank, we’re passionate about bringing our whole selves to work, allowing us to create inclusive work environments for everyone to enjoy.

Who we are:


Global Banking & Markets provides a full range of investment banking, credit and risk management products and services relevant to the financing and strategic development needs of our clients. Our products include debt and equity financing, mergers & acquisitions, corporate banking, institutional equity sales, trading and research, fixed income products, derivatives, energy, foreign exchange and precious & metals.  We also cross-sell the full range of wholesale products and services offered by the Scotiabank Group.


Your Summer at-a-glance:


This is YOUR opportunity to learn from the best of the best and set yourself up for career success. The first month of this paid internship will focus on giving you all the skills you need to be successful, including Wall Street Prep courses, Bloomberg learning, Cap IQ, case competitions, wellness challenges, and a coding course. In your second month, you’ll get to put all the learning to use as you spend time job shadowing in Global Capital Markets and Corporate & Investment Banking.


Throughout the summer you’ll also benefit from a mentorship program that pairs you with mentors from Corporate and Investment Banking and Global Capital Markets to support your learning and answer any questions you might have! You will also attend regular business line fireside talks to learn all the ins and outs of working in CIB and GCM at Scotiabank.


Sounds exciting? There’s more! Because we’re Canada’s most international bank, we had to include a little adventure! Subject to Covid restrictions, you’ll be participating in a 4-day trip to New York City, where you’ll get the chance to meet the team in New York, network with business leaders, and enjoy the sights!


And that’s not all! This internship program secures your Summer 2023 internship in Investment Banking or Sales and Trading!
