Intern Analyst

Adara Partners is recruiting for an Intern Analyst for 2023.

The internship program provides an unparalleled opportunity for a student in their final or penultimate year of university to gain hands on corporate advisory experience. Adara Partners brings together some of the most senior investment banking, legal and business leaders in the corporate advisory industry, and they jointly lead engagements as the Adara Panel. This opportunity is made distinctive and incomparable to other opportunities and this level of insight is not easily accessible in other internship programs.

The Adara internship program is unique in its offering, providing students with the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution in highly strategic and high-profile deals that have a direct impact on the lives of others. Whilst many internship programs exist in the market, this is a rare opportunity for someone to gain exposure to complex projects and work closely with professionals at the top of their field.

The intern will be invited warmly into the Adara family and will be provided with the trust to do more than watch from the sidelines. They will gain hands on experience, build their network, whilst continuously focusing on enhancing their academic, professional and personal development.

The program will be run over the second-half of 2023, from June until mid-December, with possibility for extension or progression at the end of the program. During this program you will work on a part-time basis, of approximately two days per week (days can be flexible based on your university requirements).

about the adara group

The Adara Group believes each and every person should have access to quality health, education and other essential services, no matter where they live.
