"I found out about the LSEG Internship Programme through one of my college professors and I interned at LSEG for almost half a year. My colleagues were so friendly and supportive throughout, which was one of the key reasons I chose to apply for a permanent role at LSEG through the Graduate Programme.

"Before we started our first rotation we received training about the financial markets in general, and about LSEG as a business, which was a great way to become more familiar with the Group and its divisions.

"My first rotation was in the Index Management Fixed Income team, where I worked mostly on data management. I learned about our internal systems and it was my role to make sure that the data was always accurate across all of our products.

"This really helped with my current rotation too, which is more client-facing – it’s my role to go deep into our products in order to answer any questions from our clients. I’ve been given a lot of responsibility in this role – I have to take the initiative and work with internal colleagues to solve any issues before communicating the solution back to our clients.

"I now understand so much more about the company and the rotations really helped me to learn what I like and what I don’t like – which is a great thing to know at such an early stage in my career. There’s a really flat hierarchy here too – when we have an opinion we’re free to express it and I always feel valued and listened to."
