What is Technology at M&G?
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.
What you can expect from our Internship Programme
The programme consists of an 8-week immersive dive into the world of M&G, starting on 24 June 2024. We are focused on developing you professionally, as well as building your technical skills, through real, value-add work and learning sessions hosted by our experienced professionals.
Your induction will give you a grounding of who we are and what we do before you move into your dedicated team for the rest of your time with us. Being based in the same team for the duration of the programme means you will be able to add real value to your teams, gain an in-depth of knowledge of your business area and build lasting relationships with your colleagues. You will get exposure to other areas through learner sessions and networking opportunities during the summer. Building your network is an important part of an internship, so each intern will be allocated a buddy from our graduate cohort, and you will also have the opportunity to attend networking and social events during your time here.
Our internship programme is a pipeline to our Graduate programme, so at the end of your internship, you will have the opportunity to apply for one of our graduate positions commencing in 2025.
What will you be doing?
You will be working on your own projects, getting involved in team meetings, and encouraged to present your own views and ideas during your time here. Interns at M&G make valuable contributions to the teams they work in and will be involved in a variety of tasks across our teams:
- Security: You could be involved in projects and supporting work relating to access to M&G systems, compiling and publishing security awareness materials, scanning our networks for malicious activity or even looking at how our data classification polices work and offer improvements.
- Retail & Savings: You will have the opportunity to work on a discrete project aligned with our strategic ambition across Data and Analytics, Product Engineering, Business Analysis or within one of our Delivery portfolios. You will be involved in ideation, researching, collating, presenting and making recommendations to stakeholders.
