Citi has had a presence in the United Kingdom since 1902 with the opening of IBC's (International Banking Corporation's) London office. Smith Barney opened its first office in London in 1968, and Salomon Brothers established its U.K. headquarters in London in 1971. In 1997, Smith Barney merged with Salomon Inc. to form Salomon Smith Barney. Citi merged Salomon Smith Barney with Schroder Plc. in 2000, creating a leading pan-European investment bank.
Today, the U.K. is the headquarters of Citi's Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, which consists of operations in 54 countries and does business in another 61.
Our main office is in London, but we also have sizeable offices in Belfast, Derby and Edinburgh.
Citi's institutional businesses offer a vast range of commercial investment and transaction services to corporate, financial institution and public sector clients. The Citi Private Bank delivers a complete range of wealth management services to high-net-worth individuals and families.
Citibank U.K. provides a wide range of banking, savings and investment products to its customers online and via its London branch network. Find out more at www.citibank.co.uk.
Citi has been employing people in Northern Ireland since 2005 when it opened its doors to the Technology department. At that time there were 375 jobs created in one site. As of 2018 there are more than 2,500 Citi jobs in Belfast based across four sites.
Citi has grown rapidly in Northern Ireland, and we are still growing, making it a great time to become part of this global organization.
We now have roles in a range of diverse areas in Citi Belfast
We currently occupy four sites across Belfast, one in the City Centre and three in the Titanic Quarter, with the Gateway Building being the largest with over 2,000 employees. Our locations are:
Citi Belfast employs people from a wide range of backgrounds. Investment banking knowledge or experience is not essential for some of our roles as we understand that this experience is not prevalent in Northern Ireland. We are always looking for motivated people who can use their experience in other industries to apply to the banking sector.
We have a significant focus on embracing Diversity in Citi Belfast, with Networks focusing on Pride, DisABILITY, Women and Parents. We have regular cultural and social events in Citi Belfast from staff BBQs, a float at Pride parade and celebrations of various cultural festivities to our annual Citi inspire 5k event, which welcomes entries from other local businesses. We also support a different charity each year through regular fundraising events and activities. In 2017 our employee-voted charity of the year was MacMillan Cancer Support and in 2018 it is NSPCC.
As we continue to expand in Citi Belfast, we hope you will consider becoming part of our inclusive and dynamic workforce. A career with Citi could be waiting for you.
