If you’re a first or second year female student with ambitions of working in technology, then you should take a look at financial services. It’s relentlessly innovative. It moves rapidly. And it offers more opportunities than you may have expected.

CITYVIEW is your chance to discover more about this world, and what it’s really like to work in the City. It’s open to undergraduates from science, technology, engineering or mathematics subjects – particularly, but not exclusively, computer science, physics, chemistry or electrical engineering.



The event is taking place on Thursday 18th October and is a unique opportunity to gain a new perspective. It might also be your first step towards a rewarding career. Many previous attendees have gone on to be offered internship places. You could be the next.

If you’d like to apply to attend, please enter your details via our online form.

Travel expenses will be reimbursed.



An internship or career in financial services is highly competitive and extremely challenging, so it is important that you have a strong academic background.

All attendees should:

  • Be studying a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics based degree
  • Finishing studies in 2020 or 2021 (eligible for Spring and Summer internships).


  • Have achieved 300+ UCAS points from top 3 A Levels (or equivalent), from ANY subject. Be on track to leave university with a 2.1 (or equivalent).
  • Be open and enthusiastic about exploring a technology internship within financial services.

What is technology within financial services?

Technology is at the heart of every financial firm, underpinning all aspects of their work – from trading, sales and risk management to operations, control and regulation.

Broadly speaking, technology roles will fall into two main areas. The first is application and software development – providing innovative applications and solutions for critical business needs in particular areas. The second, infrastructure, is more focused on the firm as a whole – developing tools and systems to drive the business forward.

Together, these two help firms work more efficiently and retain a crucial competitive advantage. Which means you can expect unique challenges and exciting innovation from day one.
