About Schroders
We’re a global investment manager. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.
We have around 4,000 people on six continents. And we’ve been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn’t change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.


The base
We moved into our new HQ in the City of London in 2018. We’re close to our clients, in the heart of the UK’s financial centre. We offer flexible working appropriate for a client solutions focussed role.

About the team

The opportunity sits in the Sustainability team which has expanded to 17 people, covering a wide range of activities from thematic research, company analysis, portfolio monitoring, screening, corporate governance actions, client communication and marketing and discussions with policy makers and other stakeholders. The primary focus is working with analyst and fund manager colleagues to strengthen investment decisions through effective analysis and integration of ESG issues in investment processes.

Who we are looking for?

If you have a passion for building new insights into the effects of global trends on company values along with knowledge of, and interest in, sustainability issues and trends then Schroders would love to hear from you.

What it’s like to work at Schroders

Joining Schroders takes individual talent, the ability to work together, and a passion for putting clients first. With diversity such an important part of their offer, there’s no one Schroders type. But they all do share a belief in five core values:

Excellence: To excel and continually strive to do better.

Innovation: To challenge how things are done and anticipate future opportunities.

Teamwork: To work as one team for their clients. To value the contribution of individuals and encourage healthy debate.

Passion: To share a deep rooted enthusiasm for what they do, demonstrating this through the dedication and energy they bring to servicing their clients.

Integrity: To build strong relationships based on trust and confidentiality.

Schroders has created a working environment that is open, collaborative and meritocratic. Highly diverse in the nationalities represented at Schroders – we work hard at nurturing a culture of inclusivity and respect across the world.

We see employee retention as a key client benefit – helping to foster the deep and lasting relationships that our continued success relies on. And so each individual joining Schroders can expect the same opportunities to learn, grow and progress within the firm.

The closing date for applications is 2 February.
