Who we are
M&GPrudential is in the middle of an exciting and challenging journey towards becoming an independent company, with huge ambition and international growth at its core. The Technology team underpins almost every element of MGP’s strategic direction through its support of the transformation agenda and providing a stable foundation for the business.
Not only do we advise, implement and support excellent technical platforms, we also work hard with our business partners to drive the transformation of our organisation to meet our customers’ expectations of speed, information and value for money.
Our industry is not standing still, and neither are we; digital disruption is a huge opportunity and it is an incredible time to work in financial technology.
Join M&GPrudential’s Technology Graduate Scheme and you’ll join a hive of innovation.
What you will be doing
Our company is transforming, and we are working hard to build a technology foundation fit for a modern, digital, insight-led, responsive business. This means we can offer a wide range of exposure and growth opportunities, focussed on your individual strengths and interests.
The work we do varies greatly, as do our skills and expertise. So, if you collaborate with your manager, you can tailor your scheme to cover areas you already enjoy AND areas where you’d like to develop! You could end up specialising in programming, project management, analysis, enterprise security and cloud services to name but a few. We offer a wide range of exposure and growth opportunities, focused on your individual strengths and interests.
You will be on the scheme for 18 months before you roll of permanently into a team. Here is a flavour of the teams you might rotate through:
Global Distribution IT team: We partner with our sales, marketing and service teams, working with our business to become a digitally enabled organisation. Our ‘product owners’ need us to be flexible and nimble. The skills we bring are change management and technology development with recent projects including the creation of a chat bot which saves our internal sales teams a great deal of time, reworking an entire section of our databases and APIs, and working with external designers and front-end developers to upgrade our websites’ content management system and improve our customers’ website experiences.
Enterprise Security IT team: We employ a range of technologies, processes and practices to protect equipment, data and networks from attack, damage and unauthorised access. Our core pillars within Enterprise Security include, Security Risk & Governance, Security Operations, Identity and Access Management, Data Security and Security Culture & Skills. Our aim is to support the ambitions of the business and innovate and achieve a consistent good standard across all security disciplines.
What we’re looking for
We are thinkers, doers, programmers, collaborators, communicators and planners. We are agile, bold and resilient. We investigate, analyse and think critically.
We have a strong culture of accountability, collaboration and continuous improvement, and we work closely with the teams we support to understand how technology solutions can best support our growth ambitions and are delivered promptly.
We champion our ideas and are, at the same time, comfortable to have these ideas challenged. Some of us are technical experts, others of us have different experiences to offer. Our days are rarely the same.
We have a genuine passion for technology and transformation and our customers are at the heart of what we do. We cast our net wide as we want to recruit a broad range of degree disciplines and from diverse backgrounds. If this sounds like you, you’re heading for a 2:1 and are curious to join a continuous learning (and re-learning) journey, get in touch to start your M&G Prudential journey.
What you can expect
You will receive comprehensive training starting with a five-week introductory programme. Graduates on this scheme complete their induction by obtaining the Investment Management Certificate (IMC). If desired, you can work towards further qualifications such as becoming a certified Microsoft Azure specialist and many more. You will receive regular feedback through rotation appraisals, have a vast support network including a buddy from a previous cohort, a mentor from the business, and access to in-house training opportunities.
At M&GPrudential, Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic objective. We know that an inclusive environment makes us more accessible and ensures we attract, engage, promote and retain exceptional people. We welcome applications from all individuals regardless of age, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity/nationally, disability, or military service and welcome those who have taken career breaks. We will consider flexible working arrangements for any of our roles.
