About the role

Join us, and we’ll encourage you to push the boundaries of what you know. To strive for better solutions, chase technological innovation and develop smarter ways of working. The best way to get a sense of what it’s like to work with us is to experience it for yourself. Our Spring and Summer Internships give you the chance to do just that – immersing you in our culture, involving you in real projects and giving you a fantastic overview of the business.

What to expect

This is your opportunity to gain invaluable exposure to real world problems by working on cutting edge quantitative and technology solutions. You’ll develop specialist expertise by helping deliver solutions that improve the way we, develop, deploy and implement models.

How you’ll develop
