Job Details

Introduction

At Fidelity International, we see our apprentices as a vital part of our business. We’ll give you the support and training you need to succeed, whilst gaining a qualification. In return, you’ll help us deliver world class services and become highly knowledgeable about our business.

What you’ll be doing:

We don’t expect you to come straight in and know everything about what we do. Whatever you’ve studied, we’ll help make sure you get the most out of your time with us.

As a Client Services Apprentice, you’ll join the team and provide first line support to our customers, advisers or members. The Client Services team help customers to manage their investments easily, providing knowledge and guidance to support them in the future.

You can expect to be handling incoming calls from customers and will have the opportunity to make outbound customer calls, deal with complex queries from customers by letter, phone or email, identifying innovations, or supporting new projects and initiatives.

In Client Services, you’ll go on a journey which will help you build your knowledge and your confidence. You will be constantly learning and adding to your understanding of Fidelity and its products and services you progress through your Apprenticeship. The experience you gain will give you an excellent foundation on which to build your career.

What we look for:

We’re looking for people that are interested in both the industry and the sector but ultimately those that are looking for a career which will reward them in both job satisfaction and development. During your apprenticeship, you will gain important insights and skills which will prepare you well for your future career, as well as learning from some of the best in the industry.

  • You don’t need to have a customer focused or communications related background, but an interest in people, customer satisfaction and problem solving are attributes we admire.
  • You will have the ability to build rapport and networks with fellow employees internally and customers externally and will look for new ways to improve the services we offer through showcasing Fidelity’s values of integrity and trust.
  • You’ll be highly energetic and inquisitive with a creative mind and will continuously look to identify new ways of working and solving problems.
  • We value candidates who still have an interest in learning and who want a career that rewards them financially as well as with job satisfaction because we’re investing in your career for the long-term.

We welcome applications from students from all educational backgrounds. If you’re inquisitive and ambitious, an apprenticeship at Fidelity could be a great opportunity for you.

As a minimum requirement you’ll need to:

  • Have achieved GCSE Grade 4 or above in English and Maths and a Further Education qualification (A Levels, BTEC, IB etc.)
  • Be available to join us in September 2022
  • Have good computer skills (knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point preferred)
  • Have excellent communication skills

Our clients come from all walks of life and so do we.  We are proud of our inclusive culture and encourage applications from the widest mix of talent, whatever your age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, social background and more.

As a flexible employer, we trust our people to perform their role in the way that works best for them, our clients and our business. We are a disability-friendly company and would welcome a conversation with you if you feel you might benefit from any reasonable adjustments to perform to the best of your ability during the recruitment process and beyond.

Training and Development

Over your two-year apprenticeship programme, you will complete the Senior Financial Services Customer Adviser Apprenticeship (Level 3) professional qualification.

You'll be based in our Surrey offices, where you’ll not only learn how our operations and client services contribute to making our organisation work seamlessly, but also build your knowledge of the wider business.

You’ll start your apprenticeship with a mini induction, during which we’ll introduce you to investment management and how it fits into the City. You will then join the Client Services Induction which will help build your skills and knowledge to speak to our customers. After that, there are many more ways to develop your skills as your apprenticeship progresses.

At every stage, your development will be underpinned by the best apprenticeship training and professional certified courses.

Unlike other firms that hire on a volume basis, we take on a select number of apprentices. You will be highly valued here, so your development is heavily invested in from day one.

Social and networking events will help you get to know our people and culture. All the while you’ll be learning on the job, working to clear goals and understanding your own potential.

Future Opportunities

During your time with us you’ll get to learn even more about what you enjoy, what you’re great at, and how to develop the career path that’s perfect for you. Our apprenticeship programmes may even lead to full-time opportunities if that’s what you’re looking for.
