Interested in Financial Regulation? This is your chance to carve out a career that matters
The economy affects us all. When it functions poorly, the results can be devastating. That’s why we at the FCA make sure that UK financial markets remain honest, fair and effective. It’s about ensuring firms and businesses behave responsibly so that consumers everywhere can get a fair deal.
Created by parliament in 2013, we regulate more than 58,000 UK firms undertaking a wide range of financial activities. We’re also the prudential regulator for over 18,000 of these businesses. Since then, we have made it our mission to protect consumers, promote healthy competition and enhance the integrity of the UK financial system.
Every year we invite graduates and interns from a diverse range of backgrounds to join us – people just like you. It doesn’t matter what subject you’re studying or have studied: we have a programme for you. If you’re passionate and ambitious about making an impact, you can go far at the FCA. When you join us, you’ll gain invaluable experience and develop expert knowledge working with some of the biggest names in finance. Not only that, you’ll make a real difference in the financial industry and to the UK population as a whole.
Our programmes give you a broad understanding of the industry, plus an
in-depth knowledge of our organisation as a whole. From Strategy to Supervision, each division of the FCA has different areas of expertise. Whether you’re legally minded or more numerate, our programmes are designed with you in mind.
When you join us as a graduate, you’ll rotate around various teams within your division and some may take on a broader internal secondment. For those still at university, we offer a 10-week summer internship, designed for students about to enter their final year of study
Gain Experience, Grow Networks, Improve knowledge
Whichever programme you choose, you’ll gain real-world experience and develop your networks while improving your skills and technical knowledge and learning exactly how the financial service sector works.
