Graduates & Internships
Welcome to the section of eFinancialCareers for university leavers looking for graduate internships in financial services.
When To Apply
Many graduates wait until they have completed their degree and received their grading before applying for a graduate position. You can get ahead of the curve by making applications as an undergraduate. Provided you are predicted a first class or minimum 2:1 degree in a business, economics or maths related qualification, many employers will be willing to consider your application. Applying early in this way shows your eagerness to work, and may even generate an opportunity for an unpaid internship to give both you and your potential employer a chance to get a feel for whether the career is appropriate.
Employers in the financial services sector typically require graduates to have a first class or 2.1 degree, and often prefer a mathematical or economics based degree. It is becoming increasingly common for graduates wishing to pursue a career in the finance sector to complete a Masters or PhD, and gain unpaid work experience, before entering into paid employment.
Entry Level Positions
