The team has a strong knowledge of markets and Fidelity’s portfolio strategies, combined with a capacity to communicate these in different formats, including through direct client relationships. This internship will teach you how we do it.
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 prorgamme, you’ill support investment directing and investment specialists and prepare core marketing presentations and reporting materials to support sales activities.
You’ll work with internal stakeholders to source key data and obtain the latest internal views on issues, assisting with project management tasks as assigned by the team.
You’ll experience fund and market analysys, client reporting, and will work with teams across the investment specialist teams, the fund analysts, Portfolio Managers and local sales and marketing professionals.
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.
