Internship schemes

Our internship schemes are designed to nurture talent and develop individuals who will go on to drive the future success of our organisation.

The internship schemes

Our summer internships last 8 weeks and are open to penultimate year students. This programme acts as a pipeline for our graduate schemes with those who are successful offered a place to begin after finishing their studies, the following year.

You’ll go through a comprehensive training programme which includes workshops on asset management and our business units. These are arranged for the first few weeks of the internship, and are designed to be suitable for those with and without industry knowledge.

Join us

Applications are assessed from the moment they are submitted, we therefore recommend that you start the process as soon as you are able to and don’t wait until the deadline.

  1. 1. Application form

    We have a simple registration form and a short application form, which takes roughly 20 minutes to complete.

  2. 2. Testing

    After completing the application form, candidates will be sent a link to complete the online verbal, numeric, critical reasoning and situational strengths tests. These tests take 20 - 40 minutes depending on the test, and although you cannot take breaks within individual tests, you do not need to take all four tests in the same sitting.

    You must complete the online assessment within 5 days of when they are sent. Test results will be reviewed alongside the application form. Practice tests can be found online. If you normally require extended time for assessments, please upload the associated supporting evidence where indicated on the online application form and we will make the relevant adjustments.

  3. 3. HireVue video interview

    Those who pass testing will be sent a link to our strengths-based video interview, a one-way online recorded interview, and a link containing full instructions for completing this. You must complete the video interview within 5 days of when the link is sent. For each question, you will be given a small amount of preparation time and then time to answer the question before moving onto the next. At the end, we’ll give you some extra time to discuss anything you have not already covered.

  4. 4. Face-to-face interview

    You will then be invited to our offices in London for a face-to-face interview. This could be a competency or case-study based interview, which may include some preparation time. You will not be required to have specific technical knowledge for the scheme to which you are applying, but we are interested in how you approach problems and your reasons for wanting to join that scheme.

    Whilst we prefer to meet you in person, if you are an international candidate and the burden of travel is significant, we can arrange this as an online interview.

  5. 5. Assessment centre

    The assessment centre at M&G is the final stage in the process and will involve a variety of activities over one day for graduate schemes, and half a day for internships.

    You’ll participate in presentations, interviews and group exercises; however, this may vary from scheme to scheme. You’ll meet a variety of people who work for M&G including current graduates, gaining a further understanding of our culture so you can appreciate what makes M&G so special.

    Assessment centres for graduate roles will also involve a psychometric questionnaire and feedback session.

What you can expect from us

We want you to have an engaging experience throughout the recruitment process, and we aim to provide you with the outcome of each stage within a reasonable amount of time after completing each assessment.

You can expect to receive confirmation emails from us within a few days of the application and testing stages. After the online testing stage, you’ll receive comprehensive feedback about your strengths and areas for development.

We value the efforts you make in completing the video interviews and give each candidate the consideration you deserve. However, this may mean you could wait a few weeks before receiving an outcome as we review all video and face-to-face interviews before inviting individuals to the next stage.
