What do you get as a T. Rowe Price London Apprentice? The T. Rowe Price Apprenticeship Scheme is designed to provide you with work experience in the financial services industry. Our scheme will give you an opportunity to learn about investment management and how T. Rowe Price helps our global client base to achieve their investment goals. Your placement will consist of working with a specific team within our London office, either facilities or technology. You will have a strong support network, dedicated to helping you reach your full potential and at the end of the apprenticeship you will have an accredited qualification and over a year of (paid) work experience.
Benefits of the scheme include:
Experience: Over the course of the apprenticeship, you will gain over 13 months of valuable experience by being immersed in the day-to-day workings of our firm.
Opportunity: A large number of our apprentices have been offered permanent positions at the end of their placement. We cannot guarantee a permanent role at the end of the 13+ months, however we strongly encourage apprentices to apply for open positions, and many have been successful applicants.
Exposure and Networking: You will gain broad exposure to leaders and employees at all levels across the company, to deepen your understanding of our unique culture and approach to investment management. The Apprenticeship Scheme is part of the Investment 20/20 programme, which will also offer you exciting opportunities to network with other apprentices, trainees and industry professionals from 50 firms across the sector.
What we are looking for: We are currently looking for school leavers or graduates, as well as candidates without a degree. We also welcome candidates who are looking for a well-supported way to return to work after an absence. We hire for future potential — and we especially like team players, curious collaborators and can-do people.
