Apply by Mar 26


Are you looking for a summer internship in Marketing or Communications? One that develops commercial acumen alongside your technical skills?  

We’re looking for undergraduates who can answer “yes” to the above for our Summer Internship Programme. You’ll join us in either the Investment Management business (LGIM) or our Capital division (LGC), gaining valuable insights over the course of the 8-week placement.

Starting Monday 3rd July, your internship will last for 8 weeks. This programme is a pipeline for our Graduate Programme (although successful completion of the Summer Programme does not guarantee that a graduate role is available).

Please note, we can only accept 1 application per person across all of our intern programmes and you can only be considered for a role within LGIM or LGC. Therefore, please think carefully about the programme you intend to apply for. Your first application will be considered as your only application.
