Elevation Capital has offered a formal internship programme since 2011. This has seen internships offered to a range of students from universities around the world. An internship with Elevation Capital is based solely on individual merit and we encourage students to apply via the following link with an introductory letter, current CV and any research they may have undertaken on the broader capital markets or on historical events (this can be for academic purposes or personal use). We also strongly encourage students to apply that are not undertaking a finance/economics specialisation as we believe history and social sciences are extremely applicable to our business as well. However, we will flag that we require a high standard of written and oral communication so please bear this in mind when writing the introductory letter (and any other communications) to us. We accept internship applications throughout the year and typically have one internship position in the December/January period each year.
