Our Graduate Programmes
There are two LSEG graduate programmes – one in business and the other in technology. Both provide the springboard for a rewarding and challenging career in global financial markets. As a graduate, you will have the opportunity to rotate through different areas during your programme. This not only means more variety, but also the chance to gain a clear understanding of LSEG and broaden your commercial awareness and skill-set. Our continued expansion into new markets means that, more than ever before, there are opportunities for graduates to gain exposure to our global operations. This predominantly takes the form of project work and liaison with global teams but some graduates have had the opportunity to spend time in other offices.
Our Business programme will allow you to gain valuable experience across a number of business areas. You may be involved in helping companies to raise capital, providing secure and reliable trading platforms or delivering real- time information. We’re also central to the post trade environment, managing risk and ensuring liquidity. All our work is underpinned by our expertise in developing and delivering state-of-the-art technology.
Our Technology programme will give you exposure to varied technical career paths. These technical rotations can involve cutting-edge coding, development and innovation. You’ll have an important role in harnessing new, disruptive technologies and working on projects aimed at integrating these into our frontline operations. Whatever your role, you’ll work in partnership with the Group’s other businesses, providing you with a wide perspective that will help you as you progress within our organisation.
Learning and Development
We understand how important the start of your professional life is in shaping your long-term career. The first few weeks and months of your graduate programme will therefore be carefully structured with your professional development in mind.
An intensive induction for new graduates provides the tools you’ll need to hit the ground running from day one. This is followed up with a series of continuing development programmes that ensure a steep learning curve is maintained throughout. Depending on the programme, you may also have the opportunity to gain an industry recognised qualification.
Your professional development doesn’t end once you graduate from the programme, and you can look forward to opportunities to advance your skills and learning at every stage of your career. Our employees are encouraged to gain exposure across the Group during their formative years. This could mean placement opportunities with one of our many overseas businesses. LSEG also develops employees through exceptional classroom and online training, as well as ongoing development programmes, partnering with senior executives across the Group.
