We’re looking for highly driven people with intellectual curiosity, ambition and an absolute commitment to serving the best interests of our clients.
You will be intellectually curious and possess the ability and creativity to collect and analyse a range of information, then use it to make judgements on the future prospects of industries.
You will have the ability to undertake often complex research, interpret data and judge the merits of differing opinions, and form insights essential to ensure we make wise investments for our clients
You’ll need the tenacity and confidence to communicate your judgement on whether a company should be bought or sold and justify your thinking (at times with imperfect information).
You will need a minimum of ABB or equivalent (if you didn’t achieve ABB, we’ll consider your results contextually), and achieved or be on track for a minimum 2:1 degree classification.
You will be highly valued here and your development is heavily invested in from day one and throughout your program me.
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 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:
*Please note if you are currently on a Tier 4 student visa, this means you have the right to work in the UK
Our online testing uses a fun neuroscience-based test to help you show off your best traits. 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 email@example.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.
The next stage of our application process is either a face-to-face or Skype interview, depending on your location. The questions you’ll be asked here are a combination of motivational and strengths-based questions and give us a chance to understand what you enjoy and what areas of the role fuel your enthusiasm. It’s best not to over-prepare for these as we want you to be yourself and feel relaxed. Remember to think about specific examples of when you’ve demonstrated your strengths so that we can get a clear view of who you are a person.
During the assessment, you will be involved in a mix of technical and motivational interviews, a numerical test or group task, and a technical case study exercise. 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 us assessing your strengths.
Stand out at the assessment centre and we’ll offer you a place on the programme. We can assign you a current graduate as a buddy to help with your decision making.
