Finance Spring Week Internship

Full Time

Are you interested in a career in financial services where the public is at the centre of the work you do? If the answer is yes, the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) Spring Week could be an exciting opportunity for you.

The Spring Week will take place from 26th-29th March 2018.

If students are not local to London they need not worry, as those travelling from outside of London will have the cost of their accommodation covered for duration of the week as well as their travel to and from London.

What's even better is that if students impress during their week at the FCA they have the potential to receive a golden ticket - fast tracking them to the assessment centre stage of the internship process in their second year of university!
