Are you graduating in 2026?

This is the perfect opportunity to learn about Fidelity International and feel inspired by the career options within the Investment Management industry! We are an organisation where your goals will be supported, and you can feel like you belong.

We don’t expect you to come straight in and know everything about what we do.

We want you to build a picture of what your future could like at Fidelity, so we’ve designed a programme of activities which range from informational sessions and skills workshops to business challenges and stock picking. We’ve also ensured that there will be plenty of opportunities for you to network with your peers, our senior leaders including senior women, recent graduates and industry-leading experts from across our business. By the end of the programme, you’ll have gained a unique insight into all areas of our business, learned more about what you enjoy and how to choose a career path that suits you within investment management.

You’ll start with a welcome session, where you’ll meet your fellow Spring Insight Students and find out all about us and our work. On day 1 of the programme, you will complete a ½ day of training, which will focus on introducing you to investment management, financial markets, and jargon busting many of the acronyms and technical terms you will encounter.
