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

  • Global Relationship Group
  • Equity Research
  • Fixed Income Research

  • Global Trading
  • Investment Technology
  • Legal & Compliance
  • Tax Services
  • Operational Risk Services

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.

The deadline to apply is 22 October 2020.
