We’re looking for individuals with an enquiring mind, excellent communication skills, adaptability and a drive to succeed. Outstanding academic achievements should be combined with interests outside education. A business-related degree is definitely not a pre-requisite and other interests need not be confined to finance. In fact, our Research team comprises a mix of academic backgrounds, experience and interests, and such cognitive diversity is integral to the enduring success of our team-based approach.

Applications for this year’s programme are now closed but will open again in August 2019 for internships in July 2020 at our offices in Edinburgh.

Please send a cover letter and CV to [email protected] by 30 November 2019.

The internship is challenging but intellectually rewarding. I was given the freedom to explore any industry or trend that I found interesting for my research project. I was actively encouraged to attend meetings with company executives and immerse myself in debates at research meetings.

Our internship programme is designed to give you a feel for what the investment analyst job is really like. You get the chance to analyse a company – a project designed to stretch you. You do this investment research with help from a mentor in our team to ensure high quality learning.
