Your role at a glance

Are you looking for a summer internship in Credit Rating? One that develops commercial acumen alongside your technical skills?

We're looking for undergraduates who can answer "yes" to the above for our 2024 Legal and General Credit Rating Summer Internship scheme. If you're successful, you'll join one of Legal & General's well-regarded Investment teams, which plays a pivotal role in our continued success.

Starting 1st July, your internship will last for 8 weeks. This programme is a pipeline for our Graduate Programme (although successful completion of the Summer Programme does not guarantee that a graduate role is available).

Please note, we can only accept 1 application per person across all of our intern programmes. Therefore, please think carefully about the programme you intend to apply for. Your first application will be considered as your only application.

We recruit on a rolling basis and expect this vacancy to close before the deadline. To be in with the best chance of securing a role, please submit your application ASAP.

Over an 8-week programme starting July 2024 you will be part of a team, working with our colleagues and gaining first-hand experience at working in an Investment Management business.

  • Curious, motivated and have a desire to learn more about a career in Investment Management!

Additional Information

LGIM manages fixed income, equity, multi-asset, liability-driven investment, property and alternative solutions on behalf of its clients. Located across the globe, our clients include institutional pension funds, financial institutions, local authorities and sovereign wealth funds. In order to meet the complex and evolving investment needs of our clients, we focus on remaining at the forefront of investment product innovation and maintaining our reputation as experts across all asset classes.

The tools you'll learn in the Credit Rating team are those essential to all walks of investment across banking, investing, equity and credit.
