Graduate schemes

Our Graduate Schemes are within Investment and Technology, and we actively recruit applications from all degree disciplines


Our graduate schemes start in September and last between 12 and 18 months, during which time you will find and secure a permanent role to start your career.

You can only apply for one scheme, so make sure you research your options thoroughly, and apply for the one where you think you’ll achieve your full potential.

On our graduate scheme we’ll give you comprehensive training and a lot of support, including:

  • A five-week introductory programme to asset management and M&G
  • A buddy from a previous cohort
  • The opportunity to have a mentor

You’ll receive regular reviews to accelerate your personal development and you will complete your Investment Management Certificate (IMC).

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 as quickly as we can.

Application and testing: We’ll send you confirmation emails within a few days of the application and testing stages, and after the online testing stage, we’ll give you comprehensive feedback about your strengths and areas for development. You can find practice tests online.

Video interviews: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 some time before receiving an outcome as we review all video and face-to-face interviews before inviting individuals to the next stage. We will respond to each and every candidate with the outcome.

Interviews and assessment days: We aim to give you two weeks’ notice ahead of the face-to-face interview and assessment centre stages, although sometimes we might ask you to come in with one weeks’ notice. We aim to be flexible, and will try to work around your availability if you have exams.

Graduate testimonials

  • Before our first day in the office, M&G provides all graduates with an extensive training programme consisting of both industry and company centric education. During this time, I completed the IMC (Investment Management Certificate), which gave me a comprehensive introduction to the fascinating world of asset management. This training period delivers a smooth transition for all graduates, particularly those without finance-based degrees, into the industry at the start of our careers.

    Currently, I work in the Digital Office - a team focused on promoting and implementing innovative ways of working. Along with other media, I mainly create videos to help broadcast these messages as part of the wider transformation. This is a highly varied and flexible role as I also support individuals across the firm in the production of their own video content, in addition to working closely with a professional third party video production company. With a keen interest in all things video and photography, I have been able to combine my personal interests with my work life in a dynamic and varied rotation at M&G.

  • The rotations during the Investment Graduate scheme were a great opportunity to gain exposure to the roles and processes of multiple teams and departments at M&G Investments. Additionally, the culture at M&G enabled me to have a healthy work-life balance, grow professionally and build a strong network of contacts throughout the business; with multiple events dedicated to support the Women in Investment Management network, gender diversity and inclusion.
