Zanders recently acquired Private Equity backing and has expanded into several key locations globally. We have now opened our doors in Frankfurt am Main and are looking to expand the ‘Financial Institutions’ team. Germany is a key location for Zanders’ strategic vision, such that ample funding is available to guarantee job security.

As an intern/ working student you will have the opportunity to gain work experience in all these topics. Typical clients include banks, insurers, and asset managers. You will advise our clients surrounding their financial risk models, policies, and governance.

We believe that developing our people by investing in them and by sharing knowledge and experiences sets us apart from the crowd and is the key to our success. That is why we create an inspiring work environment and foster our open, family atmosphere in which freedom, fun and flexibility play an important role. It is also why we aim to make our next project even more exciting and challenging.
