Job Description

We are on the look-out for people who have a real passion for technology. 

During this 8-week Technology internship programme, you will hone your software and programming skills whilst building an understanding of our business and financial markets. You’ll join a cutting-edge team with the ability to assume as much responsibility and autonomy as you can take on. 

The entire Technology team is asked to submit project ideas that will be useful to the team and/or the wider business. Senior managers will then select the most impactful to be completed.  You will then work directly with the team who sponsored the project.  

All interns receive end-to-end support from our teams – from an initial induction to a performance review as you complete time with us. This includes personalised mentoring, regular seminars with senior managers and key staff, social events and the chance to participate in the firm’s charitable activities. At the end of the internship, you will present your project to the entire Technology team.  

This placement is ideal for an innovative problem solver who can demonstrate inventive and creative use of technology. Successful participants will have the possibility to return full time as a graduate when they complete their studies.
