The LSEG Graduate Programme

There are two LSEG graduate programmes – one in Business and the other in Technology. Both routes will provide you with a platform for a rewarding and challenging career in the financial markets.

As an LSEG graduate, you will undertake three, six-month rotations, each in a different area of our business. This is your chance to gain a clear understanding of LSEG’s operations and to broaden your commercial awareness and skillset.

The Business Graduate Programme

As a graduate on the Business programme, you’ll play a key role delivering mission critical services to LSEG customers around the world, including some of the leading global names in banking and finance.

The Group’s core Business areas include Capital Markets, Information Services, Post Trade and Corporate Functions. Depending on your rotations, you could find yourself helping businesses to raise capital, providing secure and reliable trading platforms and delivering real-time information. Alternatively, you may have the opportunity to work with one of LSEG’s Post Trade businesses, ensuring liquidity and helping companies to manage risk.

From your first placement to your third we try to take into account your own interests and ambitions when choosing your rotation. The emphasis is always on your rounded development and the need to give you a diverse range of experiences.

The Technology Graduate Programme

A rotation on the technological stream of our graduate programme could take you any number of places. Working alongside leading technologists, you will gain invaluable exposure to LSEG’s range of high-performance technology solutions, including trading, market surveillance and post trade systems.

Depending on your specific background and interests, you could find yourself working as a software developer on live projects, or helping to test new products and bring them to market. Equally, you could be placed in a generalist role, undertaking technology analysis, managing projects or performing any number of critical functions. With the guarantee of three rotations, including one in a business-facing role, you’ll be given every opportunity to find the right fit for you.

Within the LCH business alone, for example, you might be part of a team looking after business and shared-service technology. Equally, you could be involved in working on projects involving the implementation of significant change.

Elsewhere, you could be overseeing modifications to our Millennium Exchange platform, which is configured to trade any product in any type of market, or the innovative Turquoise Equity – designed for secondary trading.
