Who We Are

M&G plc has gone through an exciting and challenging journey over the past year, with huge ambition and international growth at its core. The Technology team underpins almost every element of M&G Plc’s strategic direction through its support of the transformation agenda and providing a stable foundation for the business.

Not only do we advise, implement and support excellent technical platforms, we also work hard with our business partners to drive the transformation of our organisation to meet our customers’ expectations of speed, information and value for money.

Our industry is not standing still, and neither are we; digital disruption is a huge opportunity and it is an incredible time to work in financial technology.

Be exceptional

Great people are our most important asset. We know how important it is to create the right environment so that exceptional individuals want to work for, and stay with, us.

What you will be doing

Our Mission – To protect our customers and enable our business to embrace a digital future with confidence

Our role is to make sure that our business are ‘security confident’ and doing the right things to keep our sensitive data secure. We effectively own the ‘secure’ theme in the 2022 Technology strategy, but also have a role in driving technical excellence through modern platforms and tooling that supports seamless user experiences; creating optimised services that deliver our business KPIs; and a ‘security by default’ culture where people understand, take ownership, and champion security matters.

We employ a range of technologies, processes and practices to protect equipment, data and networks from attack, damage and unauthorised access. Our core pillars within Enterprise Security include Security Risk & Governance, Security Operations, Identity and Access Management, Data Security and Security Culture & Skills. Our aim is to support the ambitions of the business and innovate and achieve a consistent good standard across all security disciplines.

The work we do varies greatly, as do our skills and expertise. So, if you collaborate with your manager, you can tailor your scheme to cover areas you already enjoy AND areas where you’d like to develop! You could end up specialising in programming, project management, analysis, enterprise security and cloud services to name but a few. We offer a wide range of exposure and growth opportunities, focused on your individual strengths and interests.

You will be on the scheme for 18-24 months before you roll off permanently into a team.

Join M&G Plc’s Enterprise Security Technology Graduate Scheme and you’ll join a hive of innovation.

What we’re looking for

We are thinkers, doers, programmers, collaborators, communicators and planners. We are agile, bold and resilient. We investigate, analyse and think critically.

We champion our ideas and are, at the same time, comfortable to have these ideas challenged. Some of us are technical experts, others of us have different experiences to offer. Our days are rarely the same.

We have a genuine passion for technology and transformation and our customers are at the heart of what we do. We cast our net wide as we want to recruit a broad range of degree disciplines and from diverse backgrounds. If this sounds like you and you have achieved or have been predicted a minimum 2:1 at undergraduate STEM degree level, then get in touch with us to start your M&G Plc journey.

What you can expect

You will receive comprehensive training starting with a three-week introductory programme where we can support you to identify any areas of particular interest across the wide and varies world of Information Security.

Whilst transitioning through the Graduate Scheme you will continue your learning journey with the support of a Professional Development Manager and mentor along with a buddy from a previous cohort. You will receive regular feedback through rotation appraisals, allowing you to continue to develop and grow throughout the programme as well as have access to in-house training opportunities and a host of learning materials within our Workday learning portal.

We live by four behaviours at M&G plc and we ask all our employees to:

  • Inspire Others – Support and encourage each other, creating an environment where everyone can contribute and succeed
  • Embrace Others – Be open to change, willing to be challenged and able to adapt quickly and imaginatively to new ideas
  • Deliver Results – Focus on outcomes, set high standards and deliver with energy and determination
  • Keep it Simple – Cut through complexity and bureaucracy, be clear and decisive and never overcomplicate things.

At M&G Plc Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic objective. We know that an inclusive environment makes us more accessible and ensures we attract, engage, promote and retain exceptional people. We welcome applications from all individuals regardless of age, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity/nationally, disability, or military service and welcome those who have taken career breaks.
