Internal Audit Apprentice 2022 - Surrey, UK
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.
The role of the Internal Audit department is to provide an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity to add value and improve an organisation's operations. Internal Audit helps an organisation, like Fidelity, to achieve its objectives by evaluating and improving the effectiveness of its risk management, control and governance processes, and compliance with regulatory obligations, internal strategies, policies, processes, and reporting procedures.
The Head of Internal Audit reports into the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee. Our audit plan is developed to include audits of specific business areas as well as thematic and emerging risks. This results in a unique opportunity to gain exposure to a wide range of business areas across the organisation.
The Internal Audit team at Fidelity International is based in the UK, Luxembourg, Germany, India, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, Singapore, and China.

Training and Development
Over your two-year apprenticeship programme, you will be based in our Surrey offices, where you’ll not only learn how our operations team 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. 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.
