CIBC is an internal advisory team at the heart of CIB, 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 20 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 today it is developing itself in Lisbon in a start-up mode.
 
CIBC conducted hundreds of assignments within CIB.  Generally our work includes:
  • An involvement in all project management phases (analysing, designing, solution structuring, recommending, implementing, and assistance in monitoring the impact of the project)
  • Diversified contents (organisational and/or strategic projects linked with the Business Lines of CIB)
  • Cross-disciplinary subjects, which imply several participants and contributors (through various Business Lines or functions)

 In order to foster its high paced expansion and growth, CIBC is offering motivated candidates the opportunity to join its teams in Lisbon in order to assist the Headquarters (Paris) CIBC team to support an ever-changing bank. Furthermore the local consulting team is responsible for the outcome of local based projects, impacting the bank’s setup and strategy in Portugal.
