Our industry is not standing still, and neither are we; digital disruption is a huge opportunity and it is an incredible time to work in financial technology.

Join our Technology Graduate Scheme

Our company is transforming, and we are working hard to build a technology foundation fit for a modern, digital, insight-led, responsive business. This means we can offer a wide range of exposure and growth opportunities, focussed on your individual strengths and interests.

The work we do varies greatly, as do our skills and expertise. So, if you collaborate with your manager, you can tailor your scheme to cover areas you already enjoy AND areas where you’d like to develop! You could end up specialising in programming, project management, analysis, enterprise architecture and cloud services to name but a few.

On our Graduate Scheme you will be on the scheme for 18 months before you roll off permanently into a team. These could be within Investment Management IT, Global Distribution IT or Enterprise Services.

If this sounds like you, you’re headed for a 2:1 and are curious to join a continuous learning (and re-learning) journey, get in touch to start your M&G Prudential journey.

Join our Technology Internship Scheme

On our Internship scheme, the 8 weeks is an immersive dive into the world of our investment activities which includes insight sessions on the M&G Prudential business units to provide a wide base of exposure within the company.

Each intern will have a buddy from our graduate cohort who will provide informal support and promote integration with the M&G Prudential family. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend networking and social events which are essential for promoting the work life balance encouraged at M&G Prudential.

You will be placed in either the Investment Management IT team, Global Distribution IT team or Enterprise Services team.

Who are we looking for? 

We are looking for innovators, creative thinkers and hands-on individuals with a desire to learn and who have a genuine interest in financial markets. Candidates who succeed with us are self-motivated, capable of building and maintaining relationships and work effectively as part of a team. We are thinkers, doers, programmers, collaborators, communicators and planners. We are nimble, agile, brave and resilient. We investigate, think critically and analyse.

We champion our ideas and are, at the same time, comfortable to have these ideas challenged. Some of us are technical experts, others of us have different experiences to offer. Our days are rarely the same.

We cast our net wide as we want to recruit a broad range of degree disciplines and from diverse backgrounds.

Charmaine Ng

X

What and where did you study when you attended CITYVIEW?
I was a penultimate year student at the University of Manchester studying Finance when I first attended the event.

Which bank and business area did you then join?
I joined Barclays for the summer internship program in the Technology Division as an Architecture Analyst. I have since been offered a graduate position in Barclays Technology, which I have accepted.

What is the most important thing you learnt from the event?
I really learnt a lot from the event last year especially that you do not have to be studying computer science to work in technology. Many people really do have this misconception! I learnt about various technology roles available in the bank from the key speakers.

What advice would you give future attendees?
My advice for future attendees would be do not be afraid to ask questions and always be prepared when going for networking sessions. I hope that they make the best out of the event and learn as much as they can.

Anda-Lucia Flintoaca

What and where did you study when you attended CITYVIEW?
I was studying computer science at The University of Edinburgh in my second year.

Which bank and business area did you then join?
I joined the technology graduate scheme at JPM in Credit Trading upon my graduation, and then moved into an Associate role at Morgan Stanley.

What is the most important thing you learnt from the event?
There is no right set of skills one needs to have to start a career in this field. People with successful careers I met at the event were coming from very varied backgrounds with different experience.

What advice would you give future attendees?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions to understand if a career in banking suits you and how you can you use your skills and develop new skills in this field.

At the event the importance of being able to back up my answers with real examples from all different areas of life (e.g. work, university, extra curriculum activities) was also highlighted.

What advice would you give future attendees?
Ask lots of questions an keep in contact with people you meet at events to start building your network.

Attend as many of these events as possible. Be yourself when networking. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
