We have a well-established internship programme at Record which is greatly valued by the business as this is the opportunity for us to get to know talented individuals (and for them to get to know us) as they start to consider their career choices. Our internship opportunities tend to be focused on our Research, Investment and Client Teams, with students favouring either a quantitative or fundamental internship based on their studies and interests. Additionally we offer internships in our Operational areas and in the past we have offered places within HR as well as Compliance and Risk.
Our internship programme provides general training about currency management and the opportunity to focus on one or two dedicated projects within your internship. You will quickly become a valuable member of the department in which you are working. The projects and tasks that you are given will be intellectually challenging and you will have responsibility for projects that will contribute to ongoing work within your department. At the end of your internship you will have the opportunity to present your findings to senior management. Internships tend to take place during the summer months, although we will consider internship opportunities at any point during the year.

Intern in Research
I joined Record in March 2017 as part of the internship programme on the Quantitative Research team, after finishing my master’s degree in mathematics at the University of Warwick. The internship was a great way to learn more about financial services, and particularly FX, given Record’s work in the sphere of currency hedging strategies. There is a rather steep learning curve and a lot of independent study involved in terms of coming to grips with a wealth of different topics. So far I have really enjoyed the variety in my day-to-day tasks, which have ranged from applying quantitative analysis to better understand trading costs and best execution, to learning about how Record’s underlying strategies work, and even helping write a white paper for the company.
All of my team have been very forthcoming, supportive, and helpful in taking time to answer any questions I have; this strikes a good balance between learning first-hand and support from my team. Asking questions is highly encouraged in order to gain a better understanding of Record’s business, and a lot of importance is placed on having induction sessions with each department to better understand their purpose and how they all fit together as a whole. Record offered me the chance to continue with a full-time position in the Quantitative Research team.
