Early Careers


As a leading global investment firm, we at Columbia Threadneedle Investments are pleased to offer young people first-hand workplace experience through 8-week internships in a range of areas across the organisation.

While technical ability and academic success are important considerations for our interns, Columbia Threadneedle Investments knows that being a part of our global, fast-paced environment also requires broader capabilities such as collaboration and teamwork, effective communication, and an affinity with our core values: Client Focus, Excellence, Integrity, and Respect. We seek to recruit talented individuals of all backgrounds in partnership with 10,000 Interns Foundation, Girls are Investors and Investment 20/20.
