Financial Conduct Authority


As the regulator of the biggest financial market in Europe and the second largest in the world, we have an unparalleled outlook on the financial sector. We use that aerial view to work with our international counterparts to influence global regulations and contribute to helping keep economies stable and sustainable. Ultimately, we make sure the financial sector acts with integrity and fairness. We make a difference. And so can you.

Our ten-week summer internships offer a real insight into both the FCA and financial services. This is your chance to work and learn alongside industry experts as you gain real life experience of what we do and how we work. It’s everything you need to decide whether a regulatory career is for you.

You’ll also have the opportunity to give back through our corporate social responsibility day, and build your knowledge even further with our learning lunches. At the same time, you’ll be encouraged to meet and hear from our senior leaders at a series of speaker sessions. And you’ll be earning a competitive salary of £24,000 (pro rata) as you do it.

Successful interns could be offered a place on one of our graduate programmes at the end of the summer. We look for passion and integrity as well as ambition and aptitude. Although our internships are open to students from any background, we ask that you are in your penultimate year of study and are on track to gain a 2.1 degree, or equivalent.
