Your role at a glance
Are you looking for a summer internship in a business which is making a real difference to society and accelerating the transition to net zero? One that is technically challenging? One that develops commercial acumen alongside your technical skills?
We’re looking for penultimate year students who want to learn about the role businesses can play in improving society and accelerating the transition to net zero. In this internship, you’ll develop your understanding of how financial services firms interact with the societies and environments where they work, while building your knowledge of carbon reduction, sustainability reporting, social investment and charity partnerships.
What you’ll be doing
The Sustainability agenda is increasingly important to financial services companies. At Legal & General, we have a record of investing in communities and environmental solutions to ensure the long-term economic health of society. Our specialist Sustainability teams exist to push and develop this agenda – advising the business, developing new approaches, implementing programmes and measuring and reporting on our successes. We do this across the areas of social investment, environmental management and monitoring corporate governance.
You will be assigned to one of our central Sustainability teams to work with over the course of the 8-week internship. You will also take part in an induction week designed to introduce you to L&G, help prepare you for the remainder of the internship and build an internal network. Over the course of the internship, you will have the chance to interact with different teams, hear from senior speakers and network with your fellow interns. Some of the day-to-day activities could include:
Group Sustainability Team
Group Environment Team / Group Climate Risk Team
Group Diversity & Inclusion Team
But most importantly you will be learning new skills and gaining knowledge of how our business works!
