Schroders is proud to sponsor an internship and integration program that exposes transitioning military veterans to corporate culture, provides hands-on job-skill training and experience, and offers enhanced professional and personal development.
As a part of our Veterans Program, talented service leavers gain commercial experience to complement their existing skills, which can then enable them to build long term relationships at Schroders.
The program runs as a 12 month paid internship from May to May each year. However, this year our program will start June/July 2021. Available roles change each year, but based on their unique skillset and experience, individuals are selected to join one of Schroder’s business areas, including, but not limited to, Marketing, Operations and Technology. All members of the program are given training and development opportunities alongside their interesting and varied day-to-day roles.
To be eligible for this program applicants must have completed a minimum of one year of regular service in the armed forces. We recognize and value the qualities of former service personnel; we are looking for bright individuals with an evidenced background of high achievement. Individuals are expected to be educated to degree level as well as demonstrating leadership, teamwork and problem solving skills, and an interest in the asset management industry.
