Fixed Term Analyst Undergraduate Programme started in VTB Capital

12 July 2012

VTB Capital is pleased to announce the launch of Fixed Term Analyst (FTA) Undergraduate Programme in the Moscow and London offices. The programme lasts for 2 months and successful FTA in the Moscow office can be extended for up to 12 months.

24 FTA participants in Moscow and 9 in London were recruited for a variety of business areas including Global Banking, Global Markets, Sales and Trading, Structuring, Research, IT and Legal. Each of the participants went through a rigorous selection process and there were more than 2000 applicants for the programme.

Successful applicants begin the programme in July starting with our company induction to familiarise them with our history, culture and people and well as compliance and regulatory requirements. In the course of program FTAs are provided with training opportunities – among them ‘Introduction to Investment Banking and Markets’ and ‘Communication and Presentation Skills’. The programme finishes at the end of August when each participant is evaluated and provided with Feedback.

Natalia Nikiforova, Head of HR Russia, said: “The FTA Programme provides students with the opportunity to experience life at VTB Capital and to explore areas in which they may want to specialise once they have concluded their studies.  It also provides students with an excellent opportunity to work alongside a team of international experts, as well as ensuring VTB Capital has a pipeline of high quality, entry-level talent for years to come. The results of this program in 2011 exceeded all our expectations and we were able to attract the brightest and best graduates in the market. I am sure that this year's program participants will find this to be a rewarding and challenging experience and we are pleased to welcome them to VTB Capital”.
