M&G has been helping people to prosper by putting their investments to work for more than 85 years.
Today we manage the long-term savings of millions of people across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Our customers include individual savers and investors, members of pension schemes and life insurance policyholders. We look for the best opportunities to invest, across a wide range of assets, on behalf of people who care how their money is invested.
Our approach to investment management is long-term and we encourage our team of more than 350 investment professionals to think creatively, act with conviction and work collaboratively to meet our customers’ changing needs.
We currently manage £285.8 billion of customer assets (as of 30 June 2018) in investments including: bonds, equities, infrastructure, property, alternatives and cash.
Headquartered in London, we have offices in 16 countries and distribute our funds in 23 territories.
The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise, and you may not get back the original amount you invested.
WHY JOIN US?

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Have you finished your A Levels and started looking for your first real permanent job? M&G are looking for school leavers to join our Apprenticeship scheme.
Throughout the 12-18-month apprenticeship, you will work towards building skills and knowledge in a specific role and achieving a relevant industry qualification. This could include the Investment Operations Certificate (IOC), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) or other qualifications relating to the area you join. This opportunity will enable you to develop a wide range of skills and competencies by exploring the way the M&G business is run and by interacting with people across the business at all levels.
Our programme is designed to help people without degrees start their careers within a leading Investment Management company, straight after school or college and it is not a graduate programme. It provides an opportunity to receive on the job training and earn a competitive salary. Whilst this is a permanent role, you must achieve your objectives and complete your Apprenticeship and all exams within the 18-month programme to roll off permanently into the team.
