A Career at Societe Generale
If you want to be part of a friendly, team orientated environment, that welcomes ideas and innovative thinking then SocGen could be the place for you!
We are much more than just a French Bank and are currently looking to develop our Equities platform as whole, across Sales and Research.
ESG is at the heart of everything we do, and we have been recognised as the leader in this field winning several prestigious awards.
Our Equity Research teams do not simply cover stocks and write reports. We operate a conjoined model where you will be working closely with our ECM teams on IPO’s and sales teams dealing with a wide variety of clients.
In total we have more than 200 analysts, strategists and economists offering in-depth analysis and a distinctive cross-asset approach: impact of major events across asset classes, assessment of the links between asset classes, strategic synthesis to provide an integrated view.
We offer global coverage thanks to local networks across Europe, the US and Asia, together with an established UK and Western Europe base.
