We ensure all Markit interns do real work and we love the influx each Summer, as interns help complete projects and bring an added energy to our organization."
When I started Markit in 2003 in a converted barn with six former colleagues, we had one server and an idea: to provide reliable, independent daily pricing for credit default swaps.
Fast forward to 2016 to see the merger of two information businesses and the creation of IHS Markit. We are a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions for the major industries and markets that drive economies worldwide. The company delivers next-generation information, analytics and solutions to customers in business, finance and government, improving their operational efficiency and providing deep insights that lead to well-informed, confident decisions. We have more than 50,000 key business and government customers, including 80 percent of the Fortune Global 500 and the world’s leading financial institutions.
Our intern programme is now in its 10th year and is a great way for us to bring fresh new graduates into our company. We ensure all Markit interns do real work and we love the influx each Summer, as interns help complete projects and bring an added energy to our organisation.
We are committed to extending permanent offers of employment to all those who perform well over the programme and I am heartened to see so many join us after their internship completes.
