Graduates & Internships Jobs
This section includes the regular, structured graduate internships jobs for recent graduates and undergraduates across all areas of financial services including investment banking, as well as other ‘ad hoc’ opportunities for those still in education.
When to Apply for Graduate Jobs
Financial services firms accept applicants onto internship programmes either as undergraduates, or as graduates after they have completed their first degree, masters or PhD. However these positions are highly sought after, and early application is always wise.
As a general rule, graduate jobs carry the title ‘analysts, or ‘trainee’ in their job description, such as Research Analyst or Graduate Trainee Futures Trading.
The Benefit of Graduate Internships
Investment banks and financial service organisations hire graduates into internship positions in London and across the world throughout all areas of the business. Indeed, many financial services organisations will expect a graduate to complete an internship with them before they are eligible to apply for a permanent role.
Traditionally, a financial services undergraduate would look to carry out an internship during their 2nd or 3rd year of studying, gaining a valuable insight into the running of the business and their ability to work within it.
However, more recently, week-long investment banking internships have become popular for first year undergraduates, providing a short introduction into their desired career path.
The Route to a Full Time Position
It is common for the best performing undergraduate interns to be offered full time positions in the company on completion of their degree, with a number of organisations offering financial support through the remaining studying time.
In fact, many graduates will find that some of the positions they are applying for once graduated will have already been filled by previous interns. So applying for even short term internships can provide the invaluable foot in the door that you so desperately need.
