Investing in Our People

Burgundy’s values are brought to life by the daily actions of our people. No matter the position, the right candidate shares our values and understands that everything we do, great or small, is in service of our clients.

Our hiring process is built to assess candidate capabilities and cultural fit. It is not uncommon for candidates to interview with 8-10 members of our team to ensure they can seamlessly integrate with the Burgundy culture. We invest time and energy from the start because we are committed to investing in our people for the long term. A quarter of our people have been with Burgundy for 10 years or more.

If you are interested in a career with Burgundy, please email your resume and cover letter to Leslie Rivers, Senior Manager of Employee Relations.

Resource Package for Investment Interviews

In August 2020, Recruitment & Development Manager Robyn Ross led a virtual panel discussion with three participants of Burgundy’s internship program. In this discussion, the panellists reflect on their experiences as women in finance and share tips on building a resume, remaining confident in an interview, and trusting your intuition.

All candidates should have the opportunity to enter the interview on equal footing, which is why we provide the Burgundy Resource Package for Investment Interviews. This package includes tips & tricks to prepare for an interview and details what to expect from the interview process with Burgundy.
