Reading about us is one way to get a feel for what we do. But there’s nothing quite like spending a few weeks here to help you decide if you want to build a long-term career with us after you graduate. Lasting six weeks, our summer internships aim to give undergraduates in their penultimate year a great insight into life at our firm. You’ll get involved in the same sort of work as our trainees, which could mean attending meetings with partners, visiting clients, doing research and everything in between. It’s a great opportunity for you and us to see if you have what it takes to become one of our future advisers.
If you are looking for a 12-month placement during your undergraduate degree and want to gain industry specific skills while building your network, then we are the right place for you. From day one you will be working as part of the team, receiving on the job training and will be involved in the same type of work as our trainees - meeting with a range of clients and working with senior members of the team. Our industrial placements run for 12 months, starting in July. If you are successful in your placement year, you will be considered for a trainee role commencing the following year.
Whether you are on our six-week summer internship programme or our 12-month placement, you will have a dedicated line manager and buddy to assist you in working towards the goals you set on week one, along with regular catch-ups to ensure you are on track and making the most of your time at Smith & Williamson. With a range of social events, team meetings and development opportunities, our programmes are an exciting opportunity to experience first-hand what life as a trainee is like and to take the first steps in your future career.
