The importance of regulation has never been greater. Financial issues are front-page news and, in light of one of the biggest financial crises in history, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has had to develop a far-reaching strategy that will change the way we work and the shape of the industry as a whole.
Summer 2012 internships
The broad remit of the FSA means that they can offer diverse and unique internship roles that are not available in other organisations. As part of an internship programme, you’ll be assigned to one business project for 10 weeks. Being part of real business tasks, you’ll gain valuable industry experience, and build the foundations for your future career.
Their summer internship is intended to give you real responsibility from day one, and offer you the opportunity to see the organisation’s work first hand. This will help you to decide whether our Graduate Development Programme is right for you.
What the FSA look for
You will need to have gained, or be expecting, a 2.1 or above in any subject. You will be analytical and results-driven, combining a genuine interest in the work of the FSA with the desire to make a positive difference to financial-services firms and consumers.
As well as having a strong commercial awareness, the ideal candidate will be a proactive team player with the confidence and people skills to build effective working relationships and make a real impact on those around you. Above all, you will have the drive and ambition to make the most of these attributes in an environment where you’ll have your wits tested, but not your hand held.
