About the Role:

As part of the Corporate Infrastructure Placement Programme, you will receive training which will include business overview presentations, structured class room seminars, internal training by business representatives and team- building with colleagues. You'll receive ongoing performance feedback and have access to division specific educational sessions designed to aid your professional development. Managers will focus on your career development and dedicate their time to coach and mentor you, helping you realise your full potential.

Technology at Nomura involves working with, and designing, state-of-the-art information technology and risk management systems. These are the systems that can often give us that crucial, split-second edge over our competitors. Work ranges from infrastructure support and deployment to in-house development of complex modelling software and applications.

This programme will give you the opportunity to develop new applications that keep us at the forefront of technology. You’ll develop an impressive level of technical knowledge, using a range of technologies (Java, C#, C++, SQL, Python, Perl, JavaScript, HTML/CSS and others) and frameworks (Spring, Maven, Camel, WPF, Node, React, and many others).

Your role will fit into one of the below:

  • Business Analysis – To help bridge the gap between the worlds of Technology and the business, Business Analysts are the intermediary through which each side can communicate effectively. Each modification we make to our in-house software requires complete understanding and agreement from both sides as to how things are to be changed, and as a Business Analyst you will facilitate this. You’ll be meeting regularly with business representatives to understand the problems that are currently occurring, and will be translating these problems into concrete requirements for the Development and Support teams. Analytical skills are a must for this role, as well as the ability to express an idea in more than one domain language.
  • Software Development – As a software developer you will help build out our ecosystem to help our clients and traders create and maintain a competitive advantage over other banks and organisations on the street. We write a large proportion of our software in-house and you could be involved with anything from generating real-time risk measures for our traders, to ensuring that payments to other companies are correctly collated, calculated and executed. As a software developer at Nomura, you will be designing, implementing and deploying solutions to meet rapidly changing business and regulatory needs. Strong coding skills and a logical outlook are a must.
  • Technical Support – To support the many systems that are written in house, our technical support teams are the first line of communication between our business users and Technology. As a member of one of our dedicated teams you’ll be doing anything from diagnosing and remediating issues in complex system flows to investigating previously unknown issues, all while in contact with traders or other business staff in a fast-paced environment. Excellent communication and technology knowledge are required to get the ‘big picture’ and disseminate information to find a solution to issues.

Requirements:

We recruit graduates and interns with a high level of academic and extra-curricular achievement, who will be able to withstand the rigours of a rapidly changing, demanding but ultimately rewarding environment.

As a Placement Student, you should be required to complete a year in industry whilst enrolled at university and on track to achieve a 2:1 or equivalent.
