Program Overview

BlackRock is one of the world’s preeminent asset management firms and a premier provider of global investment management, risk management and advisory services to institutional and individual investors around the world. BlackRock offers a range of solutions — from rigorous fundamental & quantitative active management approaches aimed at maximizing returns to highly efficient indexing strategies designed to give broad exposure to global capital markets. At BlackRock, we value diverse perspectives and experiences . As such, teams within our Investments business would like to invite experienced professionals who are looking to re-launch their careers after an extended absence from the workplace to participate in a paid 14-week pilot returnship.

This program is aimed to help participants renew their:

  • Experience through on-the-job learning
