We offer you the chance to start your career and make a real difference.
At the FCA, we help to protect financial consumers and make markets work well by regulating the conduct of over 59,000 businesses. Our ambition is to become a more innovative, more assertive and more adaptive regulator; one that fully capitalises on data and technology, ensures consumer protection and market integrity, and responds well to the challenges we face. We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic and values driven interns to join our diverse and highly capable teams across the FCA.
ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
Length: 10 weeks
In Data, Technology & Innovation (DTI), we are transforming the way the FCA analyses and uses the data, intelligence and information we receive so that we can spot harm and act sooner, enabling us to more effectively regulate the firms we oversee.
If you join our Data Analyst Summer Internship, you’ll get exposure to the lifecycle of data at the FCA. The scheme will give you experience in data design and operations, data engineering and data analysis and visualisation. Interns on this scheme use a range of analytical techniques to derive insight from data and this insight derivation is a key interest for you.
At the end of the internship, you’ll have gained experience in both data analysis and financial services, working with diverse groups of stakeholders to solve real-world business problems. And, if you’re successful, you could be offered a place on our 2024 Graduate Programme.

– A bespoke induction in the first week of the summer internship programme to introduce you to what we do at the FCA and our place in the Financial Services landscape

We work to ensure financial markets work well for individuals, for businesses and for the economy as a whole.
We do this by:
– regulating the conduct of approximately 50,000 businesses
– prudentially supervising 48,000 firms
– setting specific standards for around 18,000 firms
We were set up on 1 April 2013, taking over conduct and relevant prudential regulation from the Financial Services Authority (FSA).
Our Head Office is based in London, and we work across the UK, from our office in Edinburgh and via colleagues in Belfast and Cardiff.
Firms and individuals must be authorised or registered by us to carry out certain activities. Before we grant authorisation, firms must demonstrate that they meet a range of requirements. We then supervise these firms to make sure they continue to meet our standards and rules after they’re authorised. If firms and individuals fail to meet these standards, we have a range of enforcement powers we can use.
We work alongside the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), the prudential regulator of around 1,500 banks, building societies, credit unions, insurers and major investment firms.
