Onboarding is fundamental to starting the employment journey at EQT on the right foot. All new employees follow a program that starts before joining EQT and lasts throughout their first 12 months. It includes e-Learning, a firm wide introduction to key stakeholders, global introduction days at our office in Stockholm, a “buddy” to show you the ropes.

Successful execution is driven by high performing teams and great leaders. If you have a passion to grow and constantly learn new things, you will thrive at EQT, where we give our people responsibility and trust early on in their career. Our teams have a mix of senior leaders and young professionals, all with different expertise but equally curious and focused on how to best optimize results.  

Business continuity relies on proficient leaders who are ready to step up at the right point in time in all parts of the organization. Therefore, it is key that we not only keep developing our high performers’ skills and qualifications, but also their executive leadership, corporate responsibility, decision making and feedback skills. 

Our people are go-getters and entrepreneurs. If you believe in something and want to realize it - make it happen! 

Regardless of which area you operate in at EQT, there is a growth and development plan. 

The entry level as an Investment Professional is Associate. From there you move up to Vice President, Director, Managing Director and finally Partner.

If you join any of our Central Function teams or Client Relations & Capital Raising, the path looks different depending on the function. The most common is that you start as an Associate within your field, and then move further to Manager.
