Feel like there’s always something new to learn

Learning and development

Fidelity is a fantastic place to learn, innovate and grow. Whatever programme you join, you’ll find challenges that’ll stretch you and experts who’ll support your every step. And the more we grow, the more there’ll be for you to explore.

We’re committed to helping everyone here to fulfil their potential. Our learning and development initiatives will enable you to:

  • Engage with expert trainers to grow and refine your skillset 
  • Benefit from a motivated support system of peers, mentors and managers 
  • Continue to develop your technical expertise through professional accreditations and/or access to our online learning systems

Our values, Trust and Integrity, drive how we work with each other. We recognise the trust placed in us by all our Early Careers talent. Hence, our aim to curate a best-in-class programmatic experience that will help shape, develop and accelerate careers over the years to come. 

What you can expect

We aim to attract and maintain teams of the best possible investment and operational talent across the globe. Graduates who join one of our programmes are invested in from day one.

Together with our Business Leaders and Talent Management partners, we have created a holistic development programme for all our graduates, designed to equip you with both the technical and behavioural skills to ensure you succeed in your role.

Talent development and career growth

All early careers new hires attend our Global Orientation. This is our opportunity to introduce you to Fidelity; what we do and how we work, our clients, and our impact within the investment management industry. This is coupled with tailored behavioural and technical skills modules, all designed to provide a rounded learning experience and set you up for success in your role. 

You will embark on a two year learning journey when you join, where a range of vendors will help you to develop skills, gain professional qualifications and focus on your career development

All of this you will learn alongside colleagues spread across our many locations around the globe, and from a variety of backgrounds.

Progressive Learning Journey

When it comes to designing a learning and development curriculum, we apply the 70:20:10 rule. Essentially, 70% of learning is experiential on-the-job, 20% learnt from peers, and 10% from formal learning events. Our training events are designed to accelerate and amplify the skills required for your role and longer-term career development.  
As an example, we will help you work toward any relevant professional qualification aligned to your role and your chosen programme. These include: 

  • IOC: Investment Operations Certificate
  • IMC: Investment Management Certificate
  • CFA: Chartered Financial Analyst Level 1. CFA Levels 2 and 3 are programme specific

We also roll out technical and behavioural skills-based training at regular intervals throughout the course of your programme. 

The investment in your professional development doesn’t stop there - If you secure a role at the end of your programme, you can participant in some of our other Learning and Development offerings, inclusive of higher level apprenticeship programmes, professional qualifications and short courses.

Please note: apprentices must have completed their apprenticeship programme before pursuing any additional professional qualifications.

Support Network

Wrapped around our core learning curriculum is a network designed to support you and bring our values, behaviours and culture to life. During your programme you will be paired with:
