The Team you’ll join:
Our Sales and Marketing teams are essential to the continued growth and success of our business.

You could join us as an intern in any of the teams below:
What you’ll be doing:
We don’t expect you to come straight in and know everything about what we do.
As an intern, and whatever you’re studying, we’ll help make sure you get the most out of your time with us. Fidelity is a fantastic place to learn, innovate and grow. There are expert colleagues around the world to learn from and share ideas with.
On our 10- week programme, you could work alongside the sales team to understand the clients and their needs ensuring they get the best from Fidelity.
You’ll assist with the sales planning process, facilitating and leading on projects, relating to specific client or sales initiatives, that drive efficiencies, propel the sales team and contribute to overall business growth.
You’ll also develop your sales analysis skills and learn how this successful sales function operates whilst ensuring high quality client servicing.
You could work alongside the marketing team to conduct research and analysis into the wider competitive landscape
You’ll help to build understanding and awareness of our competitors and what they’re doing and develop insights on our own customer base, linking with other research and analysis
Over the course of your internship there will be opportunities for you to develop your investment knowledge, gain broad experience of your assigned team and the broader fidelity business.
The difference you’ll make:
You’ll contribute to positive, meaningful work that make a difference to our clients. You’ll help them invest and plan for the futures they want. You’ll provide invaluable support to your team, too.
How you’ll be supported:
You’ll start with a welcome and an orientation, where you’ll meet your fellow interns and find out all about us and our work. Once the programme begins, you’ll learn every day – from the experts around you and through tackling real projects. Our focus will be on supporting you to gain experience and discover what kind of future you could build in our industry.
Support is part of our culture, so you’ll have a buddy and a mentor to help you whenever you need. And you’ll join a close-knit early careers community, with plenty of social and networking events to help you find your feet and feel at home.
What we look for:
It’s who you are that matters here, rather than what you studied.
We look for interns who are analytical, eager to learn and ready to take on a challenge. A genuine curiosity and eagerness to learn about investment is vital, as is a lively interest in our work and our industry. Creative thinking and attention to detail are important too.
And, as we’re an international organisation, we’ll need you to speak English.
We’ll also need you to:
Our clients come from all walks of life and so do we. We are proud of our inclusive culture and encourage applications from the widest mix of talent, whatever your age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, social background and more.
