What programme is right for me?

We offer a variety of opportunities including insight programmes, summer internships, industrial placements/attachments and full time roles. The right programme for you will be determined by the stage you are at in your current studies and your availability to join the programme.

If you are early in your first degree at university, an insight programme offers you a shorter and more generalist encounter with our businesses where you will not be placed into a specific team but have the opportunity to attend tailored programming and events that will help you develop new skills and learn more about our opportunities in advance of applying to an internship.

Summer internships typically last for 10 weeks and attract students in their penultimate year of university who aim to start work full time the following year. The summer internship class is our primary source of hiring into our full time programmes. An internship is a great way to get a taste of what a full time role in your team of interest would be like and hone your skills through structured performance evaluations, training, development and social opportunities offered throughout the programme.

In some locations, summer intern opportunities are offered for students who are in the first or second year of study as well as fixed-term placements such as off-cycle internships or industrial placements/attachments that take place at varied times throughout the year and can vary in length depending on business need.

Full time Analyst and Associate programmes are designed for candidates who are ready to start work upon university graduation. The programme format and offering varies by business but all programmes offer formal, ongoing training and development opportunities, structured performance evaluations, mentoring support and networking opportunities; all set to supplement your on-the-job learning and experiences.

Can I apply if I require a visa in order to work in the UK?

We welcome applications from all candidates. However, the UK government have taken steps to reduce net migration to the UK by limiting the number of overseas workers from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) coming to the UK for employment. Please be aware that whilst we are able to consider applications from workers from outside of the EEA, we can only employ individuals where we can provide evidence that there are no other candidates from within the EEA who are suitable for the role.
