Why our work matters
The 2007/08 global financial crisis showed us the importance of regulation in today’s globalised financial world. It showed the impact of financial services on people, businesses and economies and how the actions of businesses and regulators can impact the stability of markets worldwide. At the FCA, we’re working to minimise the risk of such crises reoccurring, and ensuring that firms are better prepared to deal with these situations.
A competitive, healthy, transparent financial industry ultimately benefits everyone in society, and helps to protect the prosperity and security of future generations.
To give you the exposure you need to excel, our graduate programmes are made up of multiple rotations and an external secondment.
You’ll spend your first two years experiencing different parts of the FCA and growing your networks. At the same time, you’ll be collaborating with teams across your division, honing your skills and technical knowledge and developing a real insight into financial services. You’ll round out your experience with a final placement in industry.

We look for passion and integrity as well as ambition and aptitude. We don't require you to have previous work experience, but you will need to have attained 5 GCSEs (A-C) and 2 A-Levels.
