Case study: a career story
Arjun Chopra joined Investec more than 12 years ago on our very first graduate programme and now heads up our Private Capital team, which lends money to high-net-worth individuals, business owners and entrepreneurs. During that time he’s worked in different teams, and in different countries, including India. He says: “Being able to move around and learn new skills at Investec has given me different perspectives to draw on. People’s vision often starts to get broader as they spend more time here and it drives entrepreneurial thinking. From day one I’ve never felt restricted or unable to have a point of view.”

Our careers programmes
If you are in your penultimate year of study, you can gain valuable experience in a distinctive financial services organisation through our internship programme.
We run several career opportunities for entry-level professionals in the UK. You do not need to have studied a finance-related degree to apply.
Return to Work programme
A scheme for talented people who have been out of the workplace for two or more years. Successful applicants are offered a mid- to senior-level role with real responsibility, as well as mentoring and training.
We are genuinely interested in our people and reward fresh ideas. You don't need to have completed an internship before to join us for a placement that will give you a taste of our business. Many of our interns have gone on to join our graduate schemes.
We look for candidates with a passion for business and finance and offer structured learning opportunities, a range of networking events and presentations to boost your skills and help you get the most out of the experience.
Investec’s early career opportunities have been designed to develop individuals with outstanding talent. If you reflect our values through your ability to think Out of the Ordinary, your enthusiasm and your integrity, then apply for an opportunity that best suits you.
Return to Work programme
If you're looking to re-start your career after a break of two or more years, this programme could be for you. We have partnered with Women Returners to offer talented individuals of all genders the chance to join our team.
You'll complete a six or nine-month placement with a view to a permanent opportunity at the end of the programme. You'll be fully supported and have access to our wide variety of wellbeing benefits. Visit our careers portal to view current vacancies.
