GIC Professionals Programme (GPP)

Final Year Students

This 8-month programme is designed to jumpstart your career in the world of investments. It offers three business rotations where you gain unparalleled learning experiences, and the opportunity to contribute to Singapore's financial future.

The learning opportunities are limitless. Your journey begins with a month-long intensive 'bootcamp' run by our dedicated GIC School. This gives a comprehensive introduction to the main business areas in GIC, with sharings by seasoned industry professionals and senior management. Graduates are assigned an MD mentor to guide their personal and professional development.

Start to establish internal networks and gain a 360-degree understanding of GIC through three business rotations. At each rotation, a dedicated supervisor will craft a meaningful work plan to maximise your on-the-job learning. Work with teammates to solve real world business problems and make an impact.

After the rotations, in-depth specialisation in your identified role begins. We take a long-term approach to people development and continue to invest in your career development, equipping you for the unfolding future. Continue to hone your skills, as you renew and reinvent yourself to be future-ready.

How we hire

If you are ready to begin the next phase of your journey with us, learn more about the hiring process. Being prepared could give you the edge you need.


We are not recruiting for numbers, but for a good fit with GIC.

Each candidate may experience different combinations. Generally speaking, you will need to go through online tests, activity-based assessments, and interviews with HR and relevant business function heads.

You are invited to share your areas of interest with us, in terms of both function and geographical location. We will consider your preferences, but deployment will be subject to our business needs.

Everyone is given similar opportunities. We advocate meritocracy and believe in rewarding for performance.

You will be offered a competitive remuneration, in line with the market. Our compensation philosophy reflects several principles. Firstly, we strive to provide a competitive compensation package to attract and retain talent globally. Secondly, your compensation is driven by performance. Thirdly, we reward sustainable good performance rather than performance that is volatile and based on excessive risk-taking.

We started the GPP focussed on recruiting for investing functions, such as Public Markets, Private Markets, Risk & Performance Management, Economics & Investments Strategy and Integrated Strategies. We have expanded this programme to include business functions such as Legal & Compliance, Human Resource & Organization, Data & Technology and Investment Services.

As a candidate, you will be asked to indicate up to three preferred areas of work. You will then be assessed for overall fit, as well as suitability. We strive to identify a hiring department for every participant through the selection process. The first eight months are for broader learning and exposure. You will then return to your hiring department for in-business specialisation.

There is no set formula on how these rotations are determined. Your rotations will be customised based on your interests and suitability to the business teams. The rotations are meant to help you gain exposure and build your perspective of GIC's business.

GIC is interested in recruiting talented candidates, regardless of nationality, background and gender. We assess you on your overall GIC fit. This comprises analytical abilities, ability to work well in a team, and motivational qualities.
