From cultivating relationships with clients including global corporations and financial institutions to working on the financing of major infrastructure projects, Mizuho provides unparalleled opportunities for its employees.

As an employer, Mizuho offers a breadth of experiences that sets them head and shoulders above any other bank.

Christa Arrandel-Hassel, Chief European Economist, at Mizuho International plc says of her role:

“There’s never a boring moment in economics and I’m always reacting to changing circumstances. You think you’ve seen a cycle before, then you find out something new so there’s a constant intellectual challenge. I deal with a variety of people, ideas and viewpoints. This keeps me engaged and it’s gratifying. Mizuho has a collegiate, friendly work environment with no barriers to progression.”

Encouraging and mentoring female talent

Mizuho has a number of initiatives in place to support their increase in the number of female senior managers across the business and to encourage and mentor their female talent. These include a cross-company mentoring scheme, returnships and apprenticeships. More initiatives are in the pipeline. Mizuho has also changed its recruitment practices to include balanced representation on candidate lists and enhanced female representation on interview panels and is one of the founding signatories to the United Kingdom’s HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter
