Morgan Stanley creates career opportunities for over 200 young people

Technology roles feature prominently in Morgan Stanley’s biggest ever recruitment programme for University Graduates, Graduate Apprentices and University Summer Interns in Glasgow.  Over the next few months, the bank will recruit 75 University Graduates, 25 Graduate Apprentices and 104 University Summer Interns.

The 75 University Graduates will be recruited primarily from universities across Scotland for various roles and responsibilities across Technology, Operations, Finance, Legal & Compliance and Fund Services.

The 25 Graduate Apprenticeships will provide opportunities for Scottish High School leavers from S5 and S6. Graduate Apprentices will earn while they learn, working in the Technology, Finance and Operations teams at Morgan Stanley in Glasgow. They will also be able to pursue a degree qualification at the same time.

The 104 University Summer Internships are aimed primarily at penultimate year university undergraduates, typically those in the third year of degree courses at Scottish universities. Commencing in early June 2023, the internships run for 13 weeks, providing an excellent introduction and insight to the range of career opportunities at Morgan Stanley.

Vida Rudkin, Head of Morgan Stanley Glasgow said,

“Throughout the past two and a half years of the pandemic, Morgan Stanley has remained committed to providing opportunities for young people.  The firm has been an Investor in Young People at Gold level since 2015 and an early signatory for the Scottish Government’s Young Persons Pledge, so it is especially pleasing that this year we are recruiting the highest ever number of graduates, Graduate Apprentices and Interns to the Glasgow office.  Our new joiners are supported by our early careers training programmes and our Young Professionals Network.”

Rudkin continued,

“Our investment and commitment to young people in Scotland has been more than rewarded through the sheer depth of diverse talent we have been able to meet and recruit from across the country and we very much value the strong relationships we have forged with schools, universities and a whole host of partner organisations dedicated to nurturing and developing future generations.”

Applications for both University Graduates and University Summer Interns opportunities open in September with a closing deadline at the end of November, while applications for Graduate Apprenticeships will open in September and close in early March 2023.

Graduate Apprentices joining Morgan Stanley’s Technology team will have the opportunity to complete a BSc in Software Development in partnership with the University of Strathclyde or a BSc in Software Engineering, in partnership with the University of Glasgow.

Morgan Stanley opened its first Glasgow office in 2000, employing six people. Having grown to occupy two city centre office buildings, the bank moved in 2018 to a new 155,000 sq ft purpose built HQ building on Waterloo Street in Glasgow’s International Financial Services District.
