Programme Overview

Our summer program seeks to provide practical, hands-on experience, coupled with traditional classroom-style seminars, to deliver a comprehensive learning experience that allows you to contribute your perspectives and ideas. This program has been designed as a stepping stone into our fulltime Associates program - a two-year rotational leadership development program on the SEI Wealth Platform.

What You'll Do

Thoughtful job placement: Interns are placed in one of the teams on the SEI Wealth Platform. These include areas such as sales, change, commercial, marketing, client service, solutions and operations. We determine placement by considering both the interests you share with us in your interview and our business needs.

Orientation: On your first day, you will learn about SEI from senior leadership, including the CEO of the London Office.

Mentorship: We’ll pair you up a mentor, typically a recent graduate from the Associates programme, for support and guidance throughout the summer.

Case study competition: In a team setting, you will conduct in-depth analysis of a current business challenge and present your recommendations to executive management.
