As a global investment manager, we help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.

Our central belief in active management means we can focus on delivering outcomes for our clients that are aligned with our own values, and drives positive change. We know that our clients share our ethos of sustainable and responsible investing, and we remain determined to create better futures for them, and for wider society too. Today, we have over 5000 talented people in over 30 locations across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East, who focus on doing just this.


We are proud of our culture of inclusivity and respect, and our reputation of being an employer of choice. Our 2020 global employee survey found that 99% of our people are proud to be associated with us.

The wellbeing of our people is at the forefront of our decision making. We embrace a progressive flexible working framework, helping our people achieve a work/life balance and based on the principle of what is best for individuals, teams and the firm.

We also have an holistic health and wellbeing offering, including access to a high spec free on-site gym with access to personal training and classes through the week in our London and Horsham offices, with virtual classes during lockdown.

Our passionate people are active in their local communities through a number of charity partnerships, volunteering and fundraising, benefiting from a generous Schroders matched giving scheme.


You could be a school leaver or recent graduate, and join us on our year-long trainee programme or a school leaver on our two-year apprenticeship programme. Either way you’ll gain a fantastic introduction to investment management, while developing key skills and building your professional network across the business.

We don’t expect you to be an expert in your field, in fact, we’re happy to teach you all you need to know on the job. We take on a number of trainees and apprentices each year, which means you’ll be part of a team from day one. You’ll take part in a wide range of development opportunities designed to equip you with industry accredited qualifications, knowledge, and the soft skills that you’ll use throughout your career.

What we need from you is a can-do attitude, a willingness to get stuck in and a flexible attitude to work. We have five core values which underpin our business – passion, innovation, integrity, teamwork and excellence, and we look for these in the people we recruit.

Schroders is proud to have been a founding partner of Investment20/20 and has supported nearly 200 young people to start their career in the industry through the programme.

Roles vary year on year depending on where the business needs you most, and we have a wide range of opportunities across our business including Technology, Operations, Client Services, Marketing and Communications, Compliance, Finance, Investment and Wealth Management.* *roles vary year-on-year
