Fixed Income Summer Internship
Whether it’s the management of Investments, Funds or Portfolios. They’re all generic terms for what we do but we usually refer to our front-office business as Asset Management, as it’s where our investment decisions are made.
When those decisions relate to credit (bonds, gilts and similar), it’s our Fixed Income Investment team making them. This internship will teach you how we do it. You’ll get exposure to all aspects of the Fixed Income process and learn how we manage money for investors across the globe. Working on live projects with junior and senior team members, you’ll see how we use collaborative working and deep insights into risk to get a complete understanding of an investment.
What you’ll be doing
We don’t expect you to come straight in and know everything about what we do. As an intern, and whatever you’re studying, we’ll help make sure you get the most out of your time with us.
You’ll experience our credit risk, quantitative research, trading and product departments and work on projects that will introduce you to the basics of preparing financial analysis and investment reports. You’ll go to portfolio strategy meetings and learn directly from senior managers whilst developing your knowledge of financial modelling, research, risk exposure and the commercial aspects of fixed income products.
What we look for
You’ll be self-motivated, curious and enthusiastic about joining us at Fidelity. The work you’ll be doing requires creative thinking, attention to detail and the ability to multi-task.
You’ll be able to make decisions based on your numerical and analytical skills as well as being able to communicate your findings.
We welcome applications from students from all degree backgrounds. If you’re inquisitive and ambitious, an internship at Fidelity is a great opportunity to discover whether this kind of work is for you.
As a minimum requirement you’ll need to:
- Have an ABB or above at A level or equivalent. If you didn’t achieve ABB, we’ll consider your results contextually
- Penultimate year student of Bachelor or Masters degree, graduating in 2022
- Be on track for a 2:1 or above
Our clients come from all walks of life and so do we. We are proud of our inclusive culture and encourage applications from the widest mix of talent, whatever your age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, social background and more.
As a flexible employer, we trust our people to perform their role in the way that works best for them, our clients and our business. We are a disability-friendly company and would welcome a conversation with you if you feel you might benefit from any reasonable adjustments to perform to the best of your ability during the recruitment process and beyond.
Training and Development
You’ll start the internship with a mini induction, during which we’ll introduce you to investment management and how it fits into the City, as well as to financial markets. After that, there are many more ways to develop your skills as your internship progresses.
A series of ‘lunch and learns’ hosted by key business speakers will give you a first-hand, genuine insight and help you find out about the full scope of our business.
Social and networking events will help you get to know our people and culture. All the while you’ll be learning on the job, working to clear goals and understanding your own potential.
During your time with us you’ll get to learn even more about what you enjoy, what you’re great at, and how to choose a career path that suits you. Our internship programme may even lead to a place on our graduate scheme, if that’s what you’re looking for.
