At M&G our purpose is to help people manage and grow their savings and investments, responsibly.

To help us achieve our vision we're looking for exceptional people who live our values of care and integrity and who can inspire others; embrace change; deliver results and keep it simple.

We will consider flexible working arrangements for any of our roles and also offer work place accommodations to ensure you have what you need to effectively deliver in your role.

What is Technology at M&G?

M&G plc has gone through an exciting and challenging journey over the past year, with huge ambition and international growth at its core. The Technology team underpins almost every element of M&G Plc's strategic direction through its support of the transformation agenda and providing a stable foundation for the business.

Not only do we advise, implement and support excellent technical platforms, we also work hard with our business partners to drive the transformation of our organisation to meet our customers' expectations of speed, information and value for money. Our industry is not standing still, and neither are we; digital disruption is a huge opportunity and it is an incredible time to work in financial technology.

What you can expect from our Internship Programme

The programme consists of an 8 week immersive dive into the world of M&G, starting on 26 June 2023. We are focused on developing you professionally, as well as building your technical skills, through real, value-add work and learning sessions hosted by our experienced professionals.

Your induction will give you a grounding of who we are, our strategy, and customers & clients before you move into your dedicated team for the rest of your time with us. Being based in the same team for the duration of the programme will give you an in-depth of knowledge of your business area, and help you to build lasting relationships with your colleagues. Another important part of your internship is building your network, so each intern will be allocated a buddy from our graduate cohort, and will also have the opportunity to attend networking and social events during your time here.

Our internship programme is a pipeline to our Graduate programme, so if you are successful during your time with us we will invite you to apply for one of our graduate positions commencing in 2024.

What will you be doing?

You will be working on your own projects, getting involved in team meetings, and encouraged to present your own views and ideas during your time here. Interns at M&G plc make valuable contributions to the teams they work in and will be involved in a variety of tasks in:

Retail & Savings: You could be involved in researching, collating, presenting and making recommendations to stakeholders in one of the following teams:
  • Data and Analytics.

Security: You could be involved in projects and supporting work relating to access to M&G systems, compiling and publishing security awareness materials, scanning our networks for malicious activity or even looking at how our data classification polices work and offer improvements.
