Bloomberg Inter-Departmental Transfer


Dear all,

I have a question regarding Bloomberg London office. I am graduating from university in year 2012 and have ongoing interviews with the Sales and Analytic department.

I had wanted to apply to the Data Analyst position, but that position was unwilling to sponsor for visas, and I was ineligible to apply as I am not a UK citizen. The Sales department had requested someone with my specific language skills and was willing to offer visa sponsorship.

I am wondering if it would be possible to transfer into a data analyst role within Bloomberg, from a customer facing/sales role.

I am not looking to transfer to be an analyst at a bank, but an interdepartmental transfer within Bloomberg.

Does anyone know how common that is, or if it has ever been done? I am currrently CFA level II qualified.

Thank you very much for any information or insight regarding this.
