Goldman Sachs, February 2014 Operations Division Full Time Analyst, Application Deadline, BTT Gateway Job ID 7712

Mon, December 9, 2013

Preferred Start: February 2014 

Operations is a dynamic, multi-faceted division that partners with all parts of the firm to deliver banking, sales and trading and asset management capabilities to clients around the world. In addition, Operations provides essential risk management and control to preserve and enhance the firm’s assets and its reputation. For every trade agreed, every new product launched or market entered, every transaction completed, it is Operations that develops the processes and controls that makes business flow. 

The Analyst Program has been designed to combine business, technical and professional skills training with a wide-ranging platform of development opportunities to give you a broad portfolio of business management skills. Starting with both firmwide and Operations-specific orientations, the program provides a comprehensive schedule of formal training. Alongside this formal training, you will continue to benefit from peer mentoring, networking opportunities and a range of challenging developmental assignments that will take you outside your day-to-day responsibilities. 

Careers in Operations are about developing business management and leadership skills, and applying them in the exciting and rewarding world of banking and finance. We want you to develop a long-term career, and we are committed to giving you the tools and the opportunities necessary. Analysts play a vital and influential role in delivering business management capabilities to the wider firm and in maintaining the firm’s market-leading position and reputation. You will join a team in one of our many departments where you will be trained to become a ‘go-to’ person for the firm, our clients and other external agencies. With such diverse opportunities there is no ‘typical’ analyst role but your responsibilities may include: 
• Implementing the firm’s processes and controls to ensure transactions are settled to a high standard of accuracy and timeliness 
• Maintaining and enhancing our client relationships by providing proactive, high-quality client service 
• Working with colleagues in IT, Legal, Compliance and other divisions to provide the support and infrastructure that underpins our market activities 
• Identifying opportunities for process improvements and developing methods to reduce risks, enhance controls and increase customer satisfaction 

QUALIFICATIONS: What we look for 
Operations recruits highly motivated graduates who can demonstrate outstanding achievements in academic and extracurricular activities. However, a background in finance is not necessary. 

Typically we look for people who can display the following personal qualities and attributes: 
-Intellectual curiosity/problem solver 
-Articulate communicator 
-Quantitative thought and expression 
-Innovation and process engineering 
-Creativity and entrepreneurial spirit 
-Team Minded 
- Strong people skills
