We seek all talented, hardworking undergraduate students with a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.

Our internship roles span many departments in the firm including the areas of business, investment research and technology. Internship roles typically fall into the following teams, but change every year based on business need:

Over the summer, our interns experience a highly challenging and rewarding program that offers insights into the investment management industry and Wellington Management. Exceptional summer interns are viewed as potential candidates for our full-time campus programs.
