Placement Programme - EMEA

Placement Program

BlackRock offers placement opportunities in our Edinburgh and London offices. This program is for candidates graduating in 2021 (for 6-month placements) or in 2022 (for 12-month placements) and with less than 18 months' relevant full-time work experience.

These placement opportunities give you a chance to work closely and add value to a specific team, set and complete objectives and be exposed to the culture and ethos at BlackRock. These positions give you an excellent opportunity to develop new skills and gain valuable experience within the Asset Management industry.  During the placement, you will also have the opportunity to find out more about our internship or our full-time opportunities.

Available Placement Opportunities:

  • Aladdin Client Services (Edinburgh) – 6-month placement
  • Client & Product Management (London) – 12-month placement
  • Software Engineering (London) – 6-month or 12-month placement
  • Technology Support (Edinburgh) - 12-month placement


Candidates can apply for only one program (e.g. Placement Program) and up to two opportunities within that program (e.g. Technology Support and Software Engineering). You must apply for both opportunities within the same program application.

If you withdraw your application, you will not be able to submit an application for a different role. 

Next steps:

Once you submit your application you will immediately be invited to submit a Virtual Cover Letter and/or take a CodeVue assessment depending on the vacancy or vacancies you apply to.  You must submit your Virtual Cover Letter within 72 hours and/or the CodeVue assessment within 96 hours, as failure to do so will result in your application being automatically withdrawn.

We look forward to reviewing your application!
