What is the opportunity?

The RBC Capital Markets RLaunch Program is a global initiative geared toward senior-level candidates who have been on a voluntary career break for greater than one year. Candidates join as full-time, permanent employees with the option to rotate. The program is designed to re-introduce top talent to Capital Markets and provide training, mentorship and networking opportunities while offering a comprehensive experience across different business lines. The program complements our existing efforts to increase diverse talent in senior roles. Successful participants join as full-time permanent employees with placement in a 12 month rotational or direct hire program structure.  The program is designed to re-introduce external talent to Capital Markets and provide targeted training, mentorship and networking opportunities while offering comprehensive experience across business lines.

This innovative return to work program has been designed to provide opportunities for unparalleled exposure to various groups within capital markets, allowing candidates to get on the fast track at a premier global investment bank.
