You will work along with junior and senior Oaklins professionals and participate in many aspects of Debt Advisory transactions.

We are looking for graduates who are motivated, eager to learn, and are passionate about Debt Advisory. The internship comes with a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to experience a steep learning curve.
