We offer investment solutions and services and retirement expertise to more than 2.4 million customers globally. As a privately held, purpose-driven company with a 50-year heritage, we think generationally and invest for the long term. By combining our asset management expertise with our solutions for workplace and personal investing, we work together to build better financial futures.

Our people are passionate, engaged, smart and curious, and we give them the independence and the confidence to make a difference.

We know that having a diverse range of employees and an inclusive environment where people can be themselves leads to better business and Fidelity is about creating a culture where people’s differences are welcomed, encouraged and celebrated.


What you’ll be doing:

We don’t expect you to come straight in and know everything about what we do. Whatever you’ve studied, we’ll help make sure you get the most out of your time with us.

The TechHub is a passionate team providing day to day technology support, consultation and training services to internal employees. The individual teams respond to faults (from minor individual issues to high severity incidents) raised by employees via the TechHub Service Desk, undertake all new installations and moves of IT equipment and resource a wide range of tasks as part of infrastructure projects.  

The team also provide an important interface into the user base and other Technology teams, providing support services around the following technologies – building and supporting laptops, desktops, mobile and desk phones, VPN and Citrix to support remote working, basic network and patching in buildings, O365 services and many other applications in use by the business.

Support is provided face to face via open technology “hubs” where the TechHub team welcome users to drop in and seek assistance, via desk visits or over the phone.

Training and Development

Over your two-year apprenticeship programme, you will be based in either our Surrey / Cannon Street office, where you’ll not only learn how our TechHub contribute to making our organisation work seamlessly, but also build your knowledge of the wider business.

You’ll start your apprenticeship with a mini-induction, during which we’ll introduce you to investment management and how it fits into the City. You will then join the TechHub induction which will help build your skills and knowledge to do the role of a TechHub Apprentice. After that, there are many more ways to develop your skills as your apprenticeship progresses.

At every stage, your development will be underpinned by the best apprenticeship training and professional certified courses.

Unlike other firms that hire on a volume basis, we take on a select number of apprentices. You will be highly valued here, so your development is heavily invested in from day one.

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 develop the career path that’s perfect for you. Our apprenticeship programmes may even lead to full-time opportunities if that’s what you’re looking for.
