Your skills and talents

Operational risk is defined as the uncertainty that M&G faces in successfully implementing its strategies and objectives.

Our schemes will suit individuals who are pro-active team players with strong interpersonal, influencing, planning and organising skills and also with the ability to build effective relationships. You will possess, or have been predicted a minimum 2:1 undergraduate degree from any discipline, with a minimum 300 UCAS points.

About the scheme

All areas of M&G are exposed to operational risk through the very nature of their day-to-day operations. Any control absence or failure associated with processes, people, systems or any external events can result in financial and/or non-financial consequences to the M&G Group.

Our Operational Risk & Governance team (ORG) are responsible for operational risk oversight of M&G, seeking to ensure that the company manages these risks in accordance with the expectations of its clients, shareholder and regulators.

On the 12 month placement scheme you will support the development and communication of the M&G Group Risk Framework, review and challenge business unit reports of risk/control issues and build working relationships with management and risk coordinators across the business.

Training and development

All placement students take part in our comprehensive training, which includes insights sessions on asset management and the M&G business units. These are designed to be suitable for those without industry knowledge, and will provide an understanding of the whole spectrum of business areas within M&G. 

Placement students are also invited to networking and social events, and provided with a buddy from our graduate cohort who will act as an informal support contact.
