Hear it from our interns

Throughout my internships, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to support some other teams in the Investment Resource Group and engage in various projects. Collaborating with different teams gave me deeper insight into the company’s operations. This helped me understand how the different teams contributed to the company’s overall success.

CC&L Infrastructure has enhanced my technical finance and investment skills in Infrastructure. I’ve taken on responsibilities like complex modeling, preparing investment materials, attending seller meetings and presenting research. Seeing my work implemented has been meaningful and has accelerated my growth.

Can I apply for more than one internship at once?

Yes, you can submit multiple applications. During your initial phone screening, a member of our recruitment team will ask which is your preferred internship if you apply for more than one.

The approach varies by team and affiliate, but we are proud to offer a hybrid work approach. Interns typically follow the routine of the team they are hired with.

We offer internships to students in university who are actively enrolled in an undergraduate degree, but we also have opportunities for students in college depending on the internship. Qualifications will vary depending on the team.

Thank you so much for supporting my education through Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures scholarship. The financial support helps me focus on my studies and alleviates the stress of rising school costs. With this scholarship, I can maintain my role as a part-time ski coach outside of school. Thank you for your generous support of my education.
