About M&G PLC

Who is M&G?

We’re not your average financial services firm and our unique culture is just one aspect that makes us stand out from the crowd. We offer a supportive environment that encourages innovation and creativity whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance.

You will be joining one of Europe’s leading Investment Management firms where you can expect real responsibility and recognition from day one. We are large enough to offer a wide variety of career opportunities, whist small enough to treat you as an individual and tailor training and rotations to your specific needs.

What is Investment Management?

Investment management plays an important role in today’s society and financial system. Investment managers grow clients’ money over the long-term in order to provide stable and reliable returns.

Clients range from individuals investing through ISA products, private bankers and wealth managers acting on behalf of wealthy individuals (Retail) to pension funds of major international companies (Institutional).

At M&G our investors follow their own strategies, ideas and convictions, which provide diversity of thought and a rich breeding ground for discussion and internal challenge.

At M&G we not only manage external client money, we invest our own capital in our funds, creating a more compelling investment proposition for our clients. 

Investment Management can offer you an exciting and challenging career, whilst providing more reliability and stability than can be found in other areas of financial services.

Graduates at M&G

Being a member of a valued cohort you will undergo work that is both meaningful and relevant. With direct access to senior management and clients you are able to develop good relationships across the business and begin to build your own platforms to a successful and long lasting career. 

Training and Support

All graduates will undergo a robust training programme which includes technical qualifications before entering the business as well as extensive development initiatives throughout the scheme. This will give you the knowledge required and prepare you for a long-lasting career in investment management. 

As a graduate at M&G every day is different, you are constantly learning and developing your own skills. Dependant on the programme you join you will either be rotating around various business areas or within your department. This allows you to taste a number of areas and with our support match your skill set and interests to your first role after the scheme. 

What we are looking for?

In our graduate, intern and placement students we are looking for candidates who demonstrate energy, originality and conviction with a passion that relates to their chosen scheme; be that business, technology or financial markets. Confidence in your own abilities and decision making is essential and we look for those who can utilise this within a team.

We seek candidates from multiple degree disciplines; a finance-related degree is not necessary for a career in investment management. We have an eye on the future and are interested in your skill base rather than your current knowledge base. We can teach you all you need to know.
