Put yourself at the heart of the world's financial community

Business Graduate Programme

12 month programme, with two 6 month rotations (starting September 2019) 

As a graduate, you will join one of our five business areas and undertake two six-month rotations, one in your designated business and the second in another area of the Group. This not only means more variety, but also the chance to gain a clear understanding of LSEG and to broaden your commercial awareness and skill set.

The Business stream of LSEG's graduate programme offers unrivalled access to global markets, with the chance to gain fantastic exposure to the leading names in banking and finance. From Capital Markets, to Post Trade, Information Services and Technology, the unique rotational nature of our programme will provide unlimited opportunities to test yourself as you take on a range of diverse and challenging roles. You could find yourself bringing fast-growth SME companies to market, for example, or guiding clients through regulatory challenges in a constantly shifting financial landscape.

We’re interested in hearing from students of high academic potential from a range of degree disciplines and backgrounds. Above all, we’re looking for applicants with excellent problem solving skills, inquisitive individuals who are interested in the bigger picture of the Group’s global operations. A genuine interest in finance is important though we can of course provide you with additional training in the working of the markets.

Graduate Development – You will join an intensive induction programme where we will provide you with key skills for your relevant area, followed by an ongoing 12 month Continuous Development Plan as well as the opportunity to complete an industry certification (IMC/IOC). There will be opportunities to network, attend business led speaker series and the chance to engage in CSR activities.

  • Investment Operations Certificate (IOC) – Technology Graduates - An overview of the financial services profession and its regulation, whilst also covering technical units relevant to the area of work

However you look at it, this is an incredible platform from which to launch your career in financial markets.
