      How We Work

      Examples of the types of work Engineers do at Goldman Sachs include Quantitative Strategists, Cyber Security, Software Engineering and Systems Engineering. 

      Quantitative Strategists

      Our quantitative strategists are at the cutting edge of our business, solving real-world problems through a variety of analytical methods. Working in close collaboration with bankers, traders and portfolio managers across the firm, their invaluable quantitative perspectives on complex financial and technical challenges power our business decisions.

      As a member of our team, you will use your advanced training in mathematics, programming and logical thinking to construct quantitative models that drive our success in global financial markets. Your talents for research, analysis and aptitude for innovation will define your contributions and enable you to find solutions to a broad range of problems, in a dynamic, fast-paced environment. 

      Whatever your background, you will bring a fresh perspective and unique skillset to our business. In return, you will be trained by our experts across the firm to navigate the complexities of the financial markets and state-of-the-art methods in quantitative finance.

      An ordinary day is anything but. You may work on alpha generating strategies; discuss portfolio allocation problems; and build models for prediction, pricing, trading automation, data analysis and more. Whichever your area of contribution, your ideas will have measurable effect on our business and for our clients.

      Cyber Security

      The 21st century has been defined by the stark rise in digital threats. At Goldman Sachs, our cyber security analysts are on the front lines of this modern battle. In this role you will protect our clients and the integrity of our firm in both an advisory and engineering capacity. Our cyber security experts are software architects who develop and implement solutions to monitor and manage cyber security risks; security advisors who understand technology at a deep level and help educate the firm’s thousands of engineers on how to implement solutions with security by design; threat analysts who analyze, detect, and respond to cyber security threats; and pen testers who identify vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers. Calling all code-breakers and puzzle solvers: together, we secure the future of the firm and our clients.

      Software Engineering

      Become a software engineer at Goldman Sachs and bring your skills to help us build the next generation of finance systems that change how our clients and internal teams conduct business.

      Combine the best open source software, databases, cloud solutions, and programming languages, to solve problems and provide accurate, complex, scalable applications that help our business and clients gain new insights. As a software engineer, you are the change agents that transform Goldman Sachs by applying your technical know-how.

      Be a part of our embedded engineering teams, that work as a unit with our business partners. Collaborate with trading, sales, asset management, banking, finance and others, to build and automate solutions to keep our firm’s position on the cutting edge. Or, join our core engineering teams, and elevate all of our businesses by providing reliable, scalable platforms for data engineering, machine learning, networking, developer tooling, collaboration and more.

      Innovate with UI/UX designers, full-stack engineers, data scientists, cloud engineers, and more in a collaborative, agile environment where your enthusiasm to take on new problems and learn will have an immediate impact.

      Systems Engineering

      Systems engineers work in the wide core of systems necessary to support and maintain business operations throughout the firm. As a systems engineer, you have the immediate opportunity to design, develop, implement and own a variety of systems which ensure uninterrupted operation of all our lines of business.

      In this role you will explore public and private cloud, networks, storage, compute, big data, application messaging and more. Our engineers work on a variety of challenging problems from building our data infrastructure, to implementing public and private cloud-based solutions, to providing seamless, on-demand scaling of our applications.

      Join our systems engineers and write enterprise level code in a variety of programming languages with high-scalability, testing and robustness.

      You’ll be given your own work streams from the get-go and will be given autonomy to lead projects and make your own judgements. Your recommendations can feed into decisions made at every level of the FCA.

      Making the ‘what next’ decision after university isn’t easy, but if you want variety, challenge and genuine responsibility, our Market Oversight Graduate Programme could be the right choice for you.

      LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT

      As a graduate in Market Oversight you’ll complete the training pathway through our training Academy which will equip you with all the skills you need. We will also give you the support you need to develop your career at the FCA.

      WHAT WE LOOK FOR

      We value diversity of thought and therefore welcome applications from graduates with all types of degrees. We look for people who have an interest in the financial wholesale market and those who enjoy solving problems using analytics. You’ll build strong relationships and be a brilliant communicator, both in person and in writing.

      Learning on the job is a natural part of this programme, so we don't expect you to have a detailed knowledge of regulatory matters, though an interest in the UK regulatory system would be beneficial.

      WHAT WE OFFER 

      We’re committed to making the FCA a great place to work. We do this by:

      • providing a rewarding environment, recognising that our people are motivated by meaningful work
      • maintaining a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, allowing people to develop and progress without barriers

      SPC is led by Sheldon Mills Executive Director for Consumer and Competition and Sarah Pritchard Executive Director for Markets. SPC is the largest division within the FCA and is responsible for:

      • Monitoring the sectors by reviewing and assessing business models, providing guidance and planning future changes
      • Delivering and integrating effective Policy insights into our competition and supervisory work -  this helps to ensure markets function well and better enables us to identify and avoid consumer harm
      • Engaging with firms to ensure interests of consumers and integrity of markets is at the heart of their business
      • Exploring and analysing identified risks within firms through firm-specific and cross-firm work 
      • Supporting diversity and inclusion across the industry

      There are two routes within our SPC Graduate Programme; Generalist and Specialist:

      Generalist – here you’ll have the opportunity to move around and develop a breadth of skills and experiences to help you progress your career. You’ll complete rotations across several of our SPC sub-divisions, which include:

      Our Supervision Hub is a key part of the system of supervision and offers a master class in managing customer relations and regulation. The Supervision Hub is an FCA-wide strategic asset that helps to make the FCA accessible. It’s a key tool for sourcing intelligence used across the FCA to strengthen regulation and protect consumers and market integrity.

      ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

      Programme Length: Two years

      ABOUT FCA

      At the FCA, we help to protect financial consumers and make markets work well by regulating the conduct of over 59,000 businesses. Our ambition is to become a more innovative, more assertive and more adaptive regulator; one that fully capitalises on data and technology, ensures consumer protection and market integrity, and responds well to the challenges we face. We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic and values driven graduates to join our diverse and highly capable teams across the FCA.  

       

      ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

       

      Programme Length: Two years

       

      Programme Type: Rotational

       

      The Technology & Change Division provides IT and change services to the rest of the FCA. There are many diverse teams within the division, from those who structure our systems to those who plan change and design and test solutions. This is a great opportunity to help manage the impact of change on the FCA and its processes and people. You’ll be aligned to one of three Communities of Practice – Architecture & Operations, Change or Technology Delivery – and you’ll have the chance to rotate within and across these divisions, building your skills during your time in Technology & Change.

       

      Our architecture and analysis experts structure our systems. If you join our Architecture & Operations Community of Practice you’ll work across a range of disciplines that underpin the strategic and operational management of our Technology and Change division. These disciplines include strategic planning, architecture roadmap development, supplier management, design governance, financial management and resource planning. The rotations will provide you with the opportunity to gain a holistic view of the management and leadership of the whole division, turning strategy into operational delivery.

       

      Our Change colleagues are responsible for planning change, and providing a pragmatic and collaborative approach to delivery.  The Change Community of Practice offers you the opportunity to work across a range of disciplines within Change including Project Management, Portfolio Management, Business Change and Business Analysis. In the second half of the graduate programme you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in a Change discipline and work towards gaining relevant qualifications/accreditations.

       

      Our Technology and Delivery specialists design and test our technology solutions as well as maintain and protect our IT services and systems. The Technology Delivery Community of Practice is segmented into three broad areas  covering service and monitoring, agile product management and software engineering. Exposure to these disciplines will provide you with the opportunity to gain an understanding of how technology products are made, delivered and managed at scale in an organisation.

       

      LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT

      As a graduate in Technology & Change you’ll complete the training pathway through our training Academy, which will equip you with all the skills you need. You will have rotations of six months and, in your last rotation, you will have chosen your community of practice to specialise in and commence the relevant qualifications.

       

      WHAT WE LOOK FOR

      Our staff have diverse backgrounds, and no specific degree stands out as being essential, but you should be passionate about change, customer-focused and commercially minded. You will need strong communication skills and an analytical mind.
