London Stock Exchange Group
London Stock Exchange Group – unique, dynamic, global
Joining London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) is a unique opportunity to test yourself while working in a variety of roles with one of the world’s most influential and innovative markets infrastructure businesses.
We provide valuable services for a wide range of customers, focusing on Intellectual Property, Risk and Balance Sheet Management and Capital Formation. The Group plays a vital economic and social role in enabling companies to access funds for growth and development. Over recent years, we have expanded our operations to become one of the leading global organisations of our kind, employing approximately 4,500 people around the world.
As we’ve evolved, technology has become an increasingly crucial component of our global operations. LSEG Technology is the power behind many of the world’s financial markets, delivering robust, scalable, high-performance technologies; including broker, exchange, market data, risk management, surveillance and clearing and settlement products.
A rotational graduate programme like no other
There are two LSEG graduate programmes – one in Business and the other in Technology. These programmes are an opportunity for our graduates to rotate across a number of the Group’s key business areas.
Over the course of your graduate programme, you’ll come to discover how diverse and far-reaching our operations really are. You could find yourself working with emerging technologies such as Blockchain, for example, or guiding clients through regulatory challenges – and towards new opportunities – in a constantly shifting financial landscape.
You’ll also have every opportunity to develop your technical abilities, whilst broadening your commercial awareness and wider skillset. At the end of the programme, you’ll be matched with the business area that’s most closely aligned with your talents and interests, whilst best supporting the wider needs of the Group.
The LSEG Internship – a glimpse of what’s to come
Our summer internship programme, for penultimate-year students, is designed to mirror LSEG’s graduate programme, and provides a solid grounding in the Group’s operations and the many markets in which we operate. So, whether you see your future in Business or Technology, you’ll get to discover what life is really like as an LSEG graduate.
The programme is a great opportunity for us to spot talent, and many of our interns go on to join LSEG in a permanent role on completing their studies.
Help to shape the future of our business
We are looking for individuals who will help us embark on the next phase of our growth: graduates from all disciplines who are motivated by a fast-paced environment, and who thrive on working in a variety of roles as part of a critical business project. As a multinational organisation, our workforce is extremely diverse, and we are committed to maintaining an open, inclusive environment that is welcoming of employees from all backgrounds.
Now that the LSEG graduate and internship programme runs right across the Group, it is a particularly exciting time to join us. While the City of London is the global hub for our programmes, there are increasing opportunities for new joiners to support our expanding operations overseas. This may be in the form of project work from our London office, though some of our graduates have had the opportunity to complete rotations within our different global offices.
However you look at it, this is a unique springboard for a varied, challenging and impactful career in the financial markets.
