Claire Meunier, former Graduate in Group Treasury

"Joining the Graduate Programme of Group Treasury at Commerzbank was an excellent decision. During a year, I rotated through several teams, took part in their meetings, contributed to their projects and provided support in their day-to-day tasks. That way I gained a good understanding of the varied activities that Treasury is responsible for, that is to say a lot! From balance sheet management to liquidity management (only to name a few), I must admit that I had a steep learning curve and benefited greatly from knowledgeable and experienced colleagues. I even had the chance to spend two months in our Treasury office in London. With over a hundred Treasury colleagues worldwide, I should also mention that there are significant networking opportunities. As a Graduate participant, I particularly appreciated attending several trainings of high quality, as I felt that the bank is seriously investing in my career. I come from France and was pleased to integrate very quickly into a friendly and international environment. Upon completion of the Programme, I was offered a position in an area that fits my interest, namely related to short-term funding. Since then, I have enjoyed developing further and gradually specialise in my role. With challenging, yet interesting and rewarding assignments, I can well imagine being part of the Group for many years to come!"
