I want to work in an international environment for a respected company, and Deutsche Bank is the only German banking group with a truly global reputation.
Working together globally is a natural behavior for us, especially in the compliance field. As regulation is increasingly interconnected, our projects often have a global dimension. Processes and practices are shared between regions. We learn from each other.
It’s usual here for teams to contain a mix of nationalities. One of my colleagues in Frankfurt is a lawyer from the US. Placements and international assignments are opportunities for career development.
A three-month placement with Global Markets Compliance in New York was fantastic for my personal and professional development. I gained a new perspective on the bank’s business and regulatory environment, sampled another culture, broadened my technical skills and grew my network.
Outside of work I take an active interest in politics. It’s always interesting to see how political and regulatory decisions affect our business, especially in the wake of the financial crisis. It’s a fascinating time to be working in this industry.
