What we're
We’re interested in critical thinkers and proactive leaders. You’ll need an entrepreneurial mindset to manage projects, deadlines and yourself. We give you the autonomy to choose your projects, the resources to develop them and the guidance to make them impactful.

You’ll need to be a well-rounded personality, following a relevant course of study, with an attitude that embodies the can-do spirit.

As a Global Program, we are building a diverse team of interns, so we welcome students from a range of disciplines and degrees with preference for final or penultimate year students, however, it's not necessary. It is expected that candidates are conversationally fluent in English and have working knowledge of financial markets and standard software packages such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

More importantly, we also expect students to have the capacity to thrive in a global team-environment comprised of a diverse range of individuals with an attitude that embodies that can-do spirit and the ability to show initiative, creativity and think analytically.

As someone from a non-finance background, I found the programme to be extremely valuable and a learning experience. I enjoyed the balance between guidance and freedom that we had on our projects, the impact that our work could have and presenting our findings to senior executives. The training was top-notch and we learned a lot. Despite being interns, we were given access to those in senior management who were happy to answer any of our questions.

  • Study: BSc Economics and Entrepreneurialism – University of Virginia
  • Project: Consumer views on Australian banking
My time at Pepper exceeded all my expectations. The interest the executives took in the programme made us feel valued, and encouraged me to continue working hard every day. The scope of the projects was an exciting challenge, forcing us to collaborate not only with our dedicated partners, but with the entire team of interns across the world. While this had its own set of hurdles, working in this environment taught me a great deal about the world of finance, and about how to be an active member of a global team. My time with Pepper was an incredible experience, and I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity.

Pepper ensured that my learning remained a key priority for them, as they invested in my development with constant guidance from the senior executives. The challenging global environment enabled me to expand my financial knowledge and development. I was encouraged by the greater responsibility to drive our own projects.
