Job Description


If you've just finished school or college, and gained A-levels or BTECs, and you're not sure that university is for you, then this programme provides you with a chance to take the first step in your career and earn while you learn.

As a Schroders apprentice, you will spend 20% of your time working towards achieving your apprenticeship qualification; the rest of your time will be spent working with your team and gaining the skills you need to build your expertise.

You will be based in our head office in central London where you can begin to explore working life and build your career in the City. You'll earn a competitive salary, above the London living wage, which means you can afford to move to London without the need for additional financial support.

Technology at Schroders is not just about Technology; it's about problem solving and providing high quality solutions to the business. Whether it's protecting the business against cyber security breaches, developing new programmes, enabling the business in its use of new technologies or facilitating quality business practices such as Agile, our technology professionals are at the heart of what makes our business run.  

We have apprenticeship opportunities available across various business areas at Schroders, including:

  • Our Digital teams who design and develop software using ground breaking technologies.
  • Our Data teams who are responsible for delivering insights to support the wider business by using data sets and tools.
  • Our Service Management team who are responsible for the management of IT services to ensure efficiency and high quality outputs. 

Why apply?

Whichever team you join, as an apprentice you'll be involved with all the everyday tasks of your team from day one.

You'll be part of one of the most successful and well known brands in the Asset Management industry with opportunities to develop and progress your career during your time here.

Application process

There are four simple stages to the application process:

  1. Online Application Form
    Tell us a bit about yourself, your key skills and why you are interested in an apprenticeship at Schroders
  2. Online Tests
    An opportunity for you to showcase your numerical and verbal reasoning skills
  3. Video Interview
    If successful in completing the online tests, you'll be invited to complete a short video interview so that we can get to know you better
  4. Assessment Centre
    When you've made it to the final stage, you'll be invited along to an assessment centre. This is your time to shine in front of some of our employees and meet our current apprentices.

What we're looking for in you

  • You'll be an ambitious and enthusiastic self-starter
  • A team player with a pro-active approach to getting things done
    • A genuine interest in working within Technology and a willingness to learn about our industry and our business
  • You'll have at least 96 UCAS points and be 18 years old by Monday 9th September to apply for this year’s intake

Ultimately, we can teach what you need to know about the job we just need you to bring your drive, passion and enthusiasm to make the most of the opportunity to start building your career.

Please note we recruit on a rolling basis so recommend you apply early.
