Early careers at the Financial Conduct Authority

We're looking for bright, enthusiastic and values driven graduates and apprentices to join our early careers programmes. When you join us, you’ll gain an invaluable experience and develop expert knowledge working with some of the biggest names in finance. Not only that, you’ll make a real difference in the financial industry and to the UK population as a whole.

Whether you’re finishing school, studying at university or have already entered the world of work, our programmes offer you the chance to make your mark:


Our apprenticeships offer you an 18-36 month opportunity to take part in key aspects of our day-to-day work, develop new skills and gain an industry leading qualification while you earn. We look for passion and integrity as well as ambition and aptitude in our apprentices.

We don't require you to have previous work experience, but you will need to have attained 5 GCSEs (A-C) and 2 A-Levels. With a variety of programmes to choose from, there’s no telling where your talent can take you.

In addition to the various access, internship and graduate programmes we run, we are able to offer short term placements for the completion of specific research projects to students completing Masters degrees in Public Policy, where the completion of such a placement and research project in a public body is necessary to fulfil the requirements of the degree. We invite university administrators and directors of such programmes to contact us if you would like to propose placing students with us.
