Samuel studied Chemical Engineering at Loughborough University, and now works in the London office.
My first rotation was at LCH, where I gained valuable experience in areas such as data analytics, creating dashboards for senior management, which they are still using today. My second rotation was with FTSE Russell working in the sales team – I made sure that our clients got the best possible experience. It was very different from my first rotation, which is exactly why I think the graduate programme is so great – there’s huge variety across the roles on offer and the exposure you gain as a result. The best thing about working at LSEG has to be the people. I have a diverse set of colleagues with a wide range of skills to learn from and it’s a very supportive, caring environment.
Pamstudied Pharmacy at the University of Birmingham, and now works in the London office.
From early on I was given a lot of ownership over my work. My manager was quick to pick up on my ability to work independently, which is something LSEG really values. In my first rotation at Group Risk I undertook a lot of ad hoc work, but I always received the relevant training beforehand. I was looped into lots of meetings and I could pick and choose projects that I thought would be useful to my development. My second rotation allowed me to undertake a customer-facing role. I’m really lucky in that both of my managers have been very much about professional development and focused on giving me experiences that will benefit my career.
Maddie studied Computer Science at University College London, and now works in the London office.
I decided to apply to LSEG as I saw it as an opportunity to work both in the financial sector and in technology. My first rotation was within LCH as a Graduate Developer in the Group Risk team. On a daily basis I was fixing bugs, implementing new functionality and testing our applications. I was surprised by the level of responsibility I was given – enough to feel like I was making a difference, but never so much that I felt overly stressed. My second rotation was as a Business Analyst, which gave me a higher-level view of LSEG and I now understand much more about how the business functions and how we make our revenue.
Anisa studied Strategic Management at Pace University, and now works in the New York office.
My first rotation was in the Chief Operating Officer (COO) team in our Data & Analytics division. It was the first time this team had taken on a grad and I was reporting directly to the COO. It sounded a bit intimidating at first, but they were so supportive, providing me with ongoing mentoring and helping me gain access to so many different teams and projects. My second rotation, with the US Asset Management Index Sales team, allowed me to take a deeper dive into one of our businesses. It’s a customer-facing role, so I now understand our client base and the dynamics of each deal a lot better as a result. I’ve learned more about our index business and commercials too.
Kaifen studied Finance at National Taiwan University, and now works in the Taipei office.
I interned here for almost half a year before joining the graduate programme. My first rotation was in the Index Management Fixed Income team where I worked mostly on data management. I learned about our internal systems and it was my role to make sure that the data was always accurate across all of our products. This really helped with my second rotation too, which was more client-facing – it was my role to go deep into our products in order to answer any questions from our customers. I was given a lot of responsibility in this role – I had to take the initiative and work with internal colleagues to solve any issues before communicating the solution back to our customers.
