Consultant - Internship

Apply REF: 1901CHM2070

BNP Paribas is a leading European bank with an international reach. It has a presence in 73 countries, with more than 192,000 employees – including more than 146,000 in Europe and over 4,000 in Portugal alone.

BNP Paribas is present in Portugal since 1985, having been one of the first foreign banks to operate in the country. Today, BNP Paribas has several entities operating directly in this territory, offering a wide range of integrated financial solutions to support its clients and their businesses.

Worldwide, the Group has key positions in its three main activities: Domestic Markets and International Financial Services (whose retail-banking networks and financial services are covered by Retail Banking & Services) and Corporate & Institutional Banking, which serves two client franchises: corporate clients and institutional investors. The Group helps all its clients (individuals, community associations, entrepreneurs, SMEs, corporate and institutional clients) to realise their projects through solutions spanning financing, investment, savings and protection insurance.

CIB Consulting is an internal advisory team at the heart of CIB (Corporate and Investment Banking), supporting the rapid growth of the bank in a dynamic market environment. This setup is a credible alternative to external consultancies, creating tailor-made strategies in alignment with the CIB Group. The team brings together former consultants and banking experts who started working closely with the Bank’s Business Lines and Management Board. This team’s history started in Paris (2009), rapidly extending to the APAC (2011), Americas (2013) and has been developing itself in Lisbon since 2015.

CIB Consulting conducted hundreds of assignments within CIB. Our work encompasses:

  • A high involvement through all project phases (analyzing, designing solutions, providing recommendations, implementing and monitoring the project impact)
  • A diverse project scope (Strategy & Growth, Operational Efficiency, People & Organization, Client Experience, Technology & Digital)
  • A cross-disciplinary environment (involving several participants and contributors through various Business Lines or Support Functions)

CIB Consulting is offering motivated candidates the opportunity to join the Lisbon Team and support its growth within a challenging and dynamic environment.
