Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) profile

About the FCA

The economy affects us all. When it functions poorly, the results can be devastating. That’s why we at the FCA make sure that UK financial markets remain honest, fair and effective. It’s about ensuring firms and businesses behave responsibly, so that consumers everywhere can get a fair deal.

Created by parliament in 2013, we regulate more than 58,000 UK firms undertaking a wide range of financial activities – we are also the prudential regulator for over 18,000 of these businesses. Since then, we have made it our mission to protect consumers, promote healthy competition and enhance the integrity of the UK financial system.

Every year we invite graduates and interns from a diverse range of backgrounds to join us – people just like you. It doesn’t matter what subject you are studying or have studied: if you’re passionate and ambitious about making an impact, you can go far at the FCA.

When you join us, you will gain invaluable experience and develop expert knowledge working with some of the biggest names in finance. Not only that, you will make a real difference in the financial industry and to the UK population as a whole. With six different divisions to choose from, there is no telling where your talent can take you.

Interested in financial regulation? This is your chance to carve out a career that matters.

4.7/5

"I was not allocated to one specific project for the duration of the internship, and instead had a number of pieces to work on. This would vary from spreadsheet and document saving work to writing project proposals, attending job-specific trainings and reviewing documents and writing summaries to give on to a manager. There was also frequent opportunity to sit on meetings with more senior colleagues." Read full review
