About you

To be eligible for this programme you’ll need to be on course to achieving a Master’s or PhD in a STEM subject, or quantitative finance.

About the programme

As a Quant Analytics intern, we’ll place you into one of the teams within Quantitative Analytics. You’ll work on a project that is important for business but will also help you develop your technical and market skills. The programme is suitable for penultimate or final year Master’s or PhD candidates or for those from Master’s programmes that require an industry placement or business project experience. This is a flexible summer programme that runs for three to six months depending on individual circumstances.  

As a STEM Master’s or PhD candidate, you’ll join one of the teams in one of three streams: 

  • Derivatives pricing and risk management
  • Algorithmic trading and data science
  • Quant development

We’ll reward you with a competitive salary, and you’ll also have access to our flexible benefits package.

We strongly support our team’s development and we’ll provide you with a training programme. We pride ourselves on the professional support we offer our interns, and the friendly community our interns have shaped themselves.

We’ll pair you with a ‘buddy’ who’ll be there to help you get settled, answer any questions, and share their experiences.
