Whether you are a school leaver or a graduate, and whether you are interested in our traineeship or our apprenticeship programme, we’re looking for people who have the talent and drive to learn new skills and take on new challenges.
This means you’ll need to be an ambitious self-starter – someone with the determination to make the most of the opportunities we offer to learn about our business and a pro-active attitude that will relish the opportunity to earn while you learn.
We have traineeship and apprenticeship opportunities in multiple teams across our business. Whichever team you join, you’ll be given training so that you learn about all aspects of our business. You could be involved in IT, Compliance, Tax, Risk, Operations or Sales and Marketing. Whichever team you join, you'll be supported in developing not only your technical understanding of asset management, but also your competencies and interpersonal skills. Select the apply now button to view all the opportunities available to you when they open to applications in February.
Although we usually ask you to have achieved at least 96 UCAS points to be eligible for this role, we appreciate the need to be flexible given the on-going pandemic and disruption to your school/ college life. If you’ve achieved a little under 96 UCAS points in the academic year 20/21, we would still encourage you to apply. You must be 18 years old by Monday 6 September to apply for the 2021 intake.
You’ll need to match our Schroders values of integrity, passion, teamwork, innovation and excellence. We also look for particular skills that are useful in all our business areas. We don’t expect you to be strong in them all, so when you apply, let us know which areas are your strongest and we’ll try to make sure you join the business area that suits your strengths.
You should enjoy working with computers and systems, and using them to solve problems.
Planning and process management skills
You should be ready to work accurately on a number of projects to meet strict deadlines.
Written and verbal skills
You’ll be a confident and effective communicator, with the ability to grasp complex issues and find solutions, and explain them effectively.
Numerical and analytical skills
We’re a financial organisation, so naturally you’ll need to be comfortable working with data and figures and using them to support decisions.
Our Trainee Programme is part of the Investment 2020 initiative. We launched this with other leading investment firms to offer young people careers in finance. You’ll find more details on the dedicated website.
Assessment centres will be held between March and May 2021.
The start date will be: 6 September 2021
