Application process

We like well-rounded applicants, which is why we will ask you questions that will highlight your personality and potential, rather than just numerical capabilities.

Before applying, check out our top tips for how you can add value via our interview process.

We’ve worked hard to ensure our new process is fast and efficient. That means our application deadline is not about just ‘getting your foot’ in the door by the 12th March 2021, you need to apply, pass the online assessments and submit your video-interview by the 12th March as well.

We value the different ways that people think. The best way to explore that is to hear from you. Our initial online application form is a quick and easy process designed to take as little time as possible, so you can get on to the immersive testing and interview stages - where you can really show who you are.

You will need to:

  • Provide an optional one-page cover letter
  • Provide an up to date CV


*Please note if you are currently on a Tier 4 student visa, this means you have the right to work in the UK

Here you will be asked to rank several potential responses to some scenarios based on what you are likely to experience at Fidelity. When you submit your application form you will be automatically invited to complete our on-line assessment within 5 days. (Please check you spam/junk mail folder for the invite). 

If you’re successful at the online stage, we’ll invite you to do a 30-minute video interview within 5 days. (Please check you spam/junk mail folder for the invite.) 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.

Stand out at the assessment centre and we’ll offer you a place on the programme. Accepting the offer, we believe, is just the beginning of a successful career at Fidelity. If successful you will start in September 2021.
