About Standard Life plc

Who we are

We’re an investment company, and we’ve been helping people manage their money since 1825.

We’re based in Edinburgh, and support around 4.5 million customers and clients across 46 countries. We administer over £307 billion of assets, with Standard Life Investments managing £253 billion. We support around 25 million more customers and clients through partnerships in India and China too.

Whether it’s by helping people save for their future, investing responsibly, or supporting the communities in which we operate, we always aim to make a positive long-term impact. To do this, we rely on talented people – around 6,500 in total – with diverse skills and perspectives, working collaboratively and playing to their strengths.

What we can offer you

If you’re one of our graduates or interns, we’ll rely on you to play a big role. In return you’ll get real responsibilities, great benefits, and the foundations to start an exciting career.

You’ll have a two-year programme, with challenging rotational placements across several specialisms. We offer opportunities across Standard Life and Standard Life Investments – in accountancy, actuarial, business operations, global client group, human resources, investments, legal, marketing, risk and technology.

You’ll also have a supportive environment in which to work. You’ll have the chance to learn from senior leaders from the very start – as well as a personal development programme to complement your on-the-job learning. If you’re studying towards professional qualifications, there’s support along the way too.

And you’ll also have the benefit of belonging to a big community of graduates and interns – with a number of social and professional networks you can join.

If you like the sound of where this could take you – and you share our commitment to excellence in everything you do – Standard Life could be just the place to start.
