  • We offer you the chance to start your career and make a real difference.

ABOUT US

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 summer interns to join our diverse and highly capable teams across the FCA.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Programme Length: Ten weeks

Programme Type: Summer placement

Our Summer Internship Programme gives you valuable insight into the FCA and financial services market and provides you with an opportunity for real responsibility while you’re with us. You’ll sit within one of our departments and have the chance to work alongside experts in their field. For example, you could be placed within the Supervision, Policy & Competition division where you could conduct market studies and analysis to shape future policy decisions or use your analytical skills to obtain, review, organise and draw conclusions from complex data sets., or you could sit in our Enforcement team collating and analysing data to hold those suspected of serious misconduct accountable.

Whichever team you end up in, you’ll be showing us your potential and we’ll show you what a regulatory career is really like. You’ll experience first-hand the breadth and diversity of work we do here at the FCA and learn from the brightest minds in the industry through learning lunches and speaker sessions from our senior leaders. You’ll also be paired with one of our current graduates to help you build your professional network. By the end of the programme you’ll be able to decide whether a regulatory career is for you – and successful interns could be offered a place on one of our 2023 graduate programmes at the end of the summer.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

We’re not prescriptive when it comes to your background, all we ask is that you’re in your penultimate year of study and on track to gain a 2:1 degree or equivalent. Most importantly, we’re looking for passion, integrity, ambition and aptitude.

We want you to use and build upon the transferrable skills from your degree; working collaboratively and being strategically minded to solve problems and form judgements.

WHAT WE OFFER

We’re committed to making the FCA a great place to work. We do this by:

    • providing a rewarding environment, recognising that our people are motivated by meaningful work
    • maintaining a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, allowing people to develop and progress without barriers
    • looking after the well-being of our people, ensuring that they are safe and well and appropriately cared for
    • promoting an environment in which people are valued and respected

At the FCA you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference. We offer all our summer interns:

    • A competitive salary of £24,000 (pro-rata)
    • 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
    • Access to a skills training path to support you through your internship and beyond
    • Completion of a financial services related project that benefits the local community, which you will present to a senior panel of judges towards the end of your internship
    • Opportunity to hear from senior speakers across the business
    • Lunch and learn sessions to widen your knowledge of the FCA divisions and their work
    • Social opportunities to network and engage with your intern cohort

PLEASE NOTE:

    • We only accept ONE application per person for our 2022 programmes, therefore, please apply to your first-choice programme. Any additional applications will not be progressed.
    • For the 2022 Summer Internship Programme, please submit your online application by Sunday 13 February 2022. However, we recruit on a rolling basis and therefore encourage early applications.
    • Applicants must be in their penultimate year of study and on track to achieve a minimum 2:1 degree from any university.

About The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulates the conduct of nearly 60,000 businesses. We aim to make sure that financial markets work well so that consumers get a fair deal.

We want consumers to have access to financial services products that meet their needs, from firms they can trust.

To support this, we deliver our work through three objectives:
• To secure an appropriate degree of protection for consumers
• To protect and enhance the integrity of the UK financial system
• To promote effective competition in the interests of consumers.

We are accountable to the Treasury – which is responsible for the UK’s financial system – and Parliament. However, we’re an independent body and we do not receive any funding from the Government. We are funded entirely by the firms that we regulate.

The FCA is proud to be ranked on Glassdoor as a top 10 UK company for work/life balance. With us, you will find opportunities to make a difference on a national scale, and develop skills and insights that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Visit https://www.fca.org.uk/careers to discover our latest opportunities.

The FCA is one of the UK’s two financial regulators, together with the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA).
