Apprentices

Start your career on the right foot

With a Fidelity apprenticeship, we want you to exceed your potential and enjoy outstanding career success. You will earn while you learn and receive world-class training from experts in their field. You don't need a background in finance to apply for one of our schemes. But you will need passion, drive and an interest in your chosen area.  Whichever scheme you choose, you'll have lots of responsibility from day one.

These teams provide support in various ways to enable customer facing staff to effectively manage their interactions with their customers. This involves: training and coaching support, call service

Over your two-year apprenticeship programme, you'll be based in our Surrey office. Depending on the team you join, you might be handling incoming calls from customers, making outbound calls, dealing with complex queries from customers by letter, phone and email, identifying innovations, or supporting new projects and initiatives.

You’ll be asked to answer 4-5 strengths-based questions and have 30 seconds to read the question, and up to a minute to give your answer. (If you feel you will need extra time to record your interview, please email us earlycareersatfidelity@fil.com to discuss before launching your video interview. You’ll be given a practice question before you start so you have time to get used to the format. There isn’t a wrong or right answer, this is a chance for you to show us how you approach answering questions about your strengths and interests.

Ahead of the assessment centre, you’ll have a coaching call with us to discuss your motivations for applying, to explain the next steps in the process, and to answer any questions you may have regarding the programme or Fidelity.

During the assessment, you will be involved in a mix exercises and assessments related to the role you are applying to. The day is also a great chance for you to meet different members of the team here at Fidelity and ask any questions you have about the business - this day is as much about you making sure Fidelity is the right place for you as it is about us assessing your strengths.
