London - Overview

Bloomberg is a company that is constantly innovating, and as part of the Apprenticeship Programme you’ll learn as much about yourself as our business. Bloomberg will support you every step of the way. When you start, you’ll be connected with a buddy and a mentor who’ll help you navigate life at Bloomberg and support you as you pursue your new career. Regular check-ins will ensure you’re happy and on track to reach your true potential.

What is the Apprenticeship Programme?

This Apprenticeship Programme at Bloomberg is an exciting opportunity to take your first steps in changing or starting a rewarding career. During your time with us we will support you in combining work and education - you will have an opportunity to gain a degree in Digital Technology Solutions while also being an important and highly valued member of the team.

We will trust you to build your knowledge of financial markets, investment operations, various asset classes and products to support our clients with your expertise.

This opportunity will provide you with an alternative route into a global organisation away from the classic university pathway. You'll have a chance to learn from our experts, develop and grow, while working within a collaborative and innovative environment. You will have access to a comprehensive internal training programme and will be provided guidance on every step of your apprenticeship journey to take your career to the next level.

Introducing the Global Data team

Bloomberg runs on data, and data drives the market. Our Data team acquires and supplies this data to our clients. Teams work collaboratively to collect, analyse, process and publish the data which is the backbone of our iconic Bloomberg Terminal - the data ultimately feeding and moving the financial markets.   
As an apprentice you will immediately start contributing to this. 
Your apprenticeship starts with an orientation that introduces you to our culture and the state-of-the-art Bloomberg Terminal. You will start the programme within our Global Data Analytics (GDA) team where your main responsibility will be to deliver exceptional customer support to our clients by providing fast and accurate solutions to their queries, whilst developing subject matter expertise in a particular field.

Furthermore, you will assist with the collecting, cleaning and presenting of key financial data, which moves markets and empowers our clients to make the right decisions on the iconic Bloomberg Terminal. Following this, you will progress into a specialist team, working with our analysts to establish relationships with key market players in the financial industry, inspire news content, and revolutionise Data, leveraging your technical and domain expertise.
