GAIN’s Internship programme – Summer 2021
We are looking to offer internships to female & non-binary students across the UK, who aspire to have a career in investment management. A number of firms are participating in GAIN’s pilot programme to source more diverse talent for the long term. Internships will be paid and last a minimum of four weeks over the summer of 2021. Participating firms are based in London, Edinburgh & Leeds.
What will I gain from this internship?
This internship will give you the opportunity to learn about investment management and whether it is the career for you! Over the summer, interns will experience a challenging and rewarding program that offers insight into the investment management industry as a whole and the specific investment firm you join. You will join a cohort of other students with access to a tailored programme ahead of the internship to help you prepare and ensure you learn as much as possible from the experience.
Who is eligible to apply?
2nd or 3rd year undergraduate or Masters students currently studying at/or recently left a university in the UK. This programme is open to talented and dedicated female and non-binary students with a broad range of backgrounds and studying any academic discipline.
What is the selection process?
The participating firms will have their own assessment process and will select the intern or interns they would like to hire. Previous experience is not required and firms will be looking for smart, hard-working and intellectually curious individuals. The following skills are considered advantageous: ability to collaborate and build strong relationships, differentiated thinking and independent initiative, strong work ethic, curiosity, self-motivation, maturity, analytical and problem-solving skills.
The assessment process will be conducted in late November and December. You should know whether you have been successful by the end of January. Please note that given the expected volume of applications we will not be able to provide feedback on individual applications.
