Who we're looking for
All applicants must be ambitious, resilient and energetic. You'll need to show us you're a self-starter with ambition and a willingness to get involved.
Your academic record is one of the ways we'll asses you. We're open to whatever subject you're studying, but you'll need to be in your penultimate year at university and predicted to gain a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent, or a final year student planning to study for a Masters after the internship.
Industrial Placement Year
We offer placement year opportunities within our Technology division. We are open to candidates studying any discipline but we do expect a strong academic background along with a passion for technology and analysis.
Our internships cover a number of areas. These include Investment, Real Estate, Sales & Marketing, Wealth Management, Accounting & Finance, Technology, and Risk & Compliance. We also offer an industrial placement year in our well-respected Global Technology division.
