Sales & Marketing Summer Internship Programme

Our Sales and Marketing teams are essential to the continued growth and success of our business. From developing new investment products and solutions and telling our clients about them, to bringing in new business and managing client relationships to help them choose the right products; it’s an exciting and varied department to work in.

The primary goal for each of these teams is to ensure clients get the best from Fidelity and we’re proud to help our clients achieve their financial goals.

What you’ll be doing:

We don’t expect you to come straight in and know everything about what we do.
As an intern, and whatever you’re studying, we’ll help make sure you get the most out of your time with us.

You could work alongside the sales team to understand the clients and their needs ensuring they get the best from Fidelity.

You’ll assist with the sales planning process, facilitating and leading on projects, relating to specific client or sales initiatives, that drive efficiencies, propel the sales team and contribute to overall business growth.

You’ll also develop your sales analysis skills and learn how this successful sales function operates whilst ensuring high quality client servicing.

You could work alongside the marketing team to conduct research and analysis into the wider competitive landscape.

You’ll help to build understanding and awareness of our competitors and what they’re doing and develop insights on our own customer base, linking with other research and analysis.

Over the course of your internship there will be opportunities for you to develop your investment knowledge, gain broad experience of your assigned team and the broader fidelity business.

You could join us as an intern in any of the teams below:

  • UK Institutional: is responsible for around 160 clients with current assets of nearly $10bn. Clients are predominantly UK pension schemes, but also include insurance, charities and high net worth individuals (HNWIs) as well as several Irish pension schemes. Clients are invested in a broad suite of investment solutions across asset classes. These capabilities allow them to manage segregated client accounts, tailored to the individual needs of institutional investors, as well as pooled vehicles.
  • UK Wholesale: is a fast and dynamic team at the forefront of client interaction in the UK focused on selling Fidelity funds and services via intermediated sources (financial advisers, wealth managers, insurance companies etc.) in the UK market.
  • Marketing: is responsible for helping the business to better understand our clients, potential clients and the wider competitive market context that our businesses operate in.

What we look for:

You’ll be self-motivated, adaptable and curious; ideas and suggestions for improving our approach are always welcome.

You’ll be enthusiastic about joining us at Fidelity, learning more about the asset management industry and developing your commercial acumen whilst making use of the training and mentorship available.

The work you’ll be doing requires problem solving, attention to detail and the ability to build and develop relationships with our clients and internal stakeholders.

We welcome applications from students from all degree backgrounds. If you’re inquisitive and ambitious, an internship at Fidelity is a great opportunity to discover whether this kind of work is for you.

As a minimum requirement you’ll need to:

  • Be a penultimate year student of Bachelor or Masters degree, graduating in 2023
  • Have right to work in the UK at point of application. If you are currently on a Tier 4 / Student Visa, this means you have the right to work in the UK

Our clients come from all walks of life and so do we. We are proud of our inclusive culture and encourage applications from the widest mix of talent, whatever your age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, social background and more.

As a flexible employer, we trust our people to perform their role in the way that works best for them, our clients and our business. We are a disability-friendly company and would welcome a conversation with you if you feel you might benefit from any reasonable adjustments to perform to the best of your ability during the recruitment process and beyond.

Training and Development

You’ll start the internship with a mini induction, during which we’ll introduce you to investment management and how it fits into the City, as well as to financial markets. After that, there are many more ways to develop your skills as your internship progresses.

A series of ‘lunch and learns’ hosted by key business speakers will give you a first-hand, genuine insight and help you find out about the full scope of our business.

Social and networking events will help you get to know our people and culture. All the while you’ll be learning on the job, working to clear goals and understanding your own potential.

Future Opportunities

During your time with us you’ll get to learn even more about what you enjoy, what you’re great at, and how to choose a career path that suits you. Our internship programme may even lead to a place on our graduate scheme if that’s what you’re looking for.
