Student Opportunities

We invite you to push your boundaries with our graduate programme, internships, apprenticeships, and work experience placements.

Graduate Programme

Canary Wharf Group’s Graduate Programme is an excellent opportunity to develop and utilise skills for the future. We invest in graduates through a structured development programme for those who aspire to fulfil their long-term career goals.

The two-year programme offers a rich and long-lasting experience while also acknowledging the importance of self-driven learning.

Our Graduate Opportunities programme is open to enthusiastic and highly motivated candidates willing to work in London. You must have:

  • A relevant degree qualification awarded within the last two years of 2:2 or higher, as specified in each advertised opportunity.
  • Proof of eligibility to work permanently in the UK
  • An enthusiastic approach with career advancement aspirations

All our vacancies, including for our Graduate Programme, are listed on our Vacancies page

Internship Scheme

We offer summer internships to motivated and enthusiastic second-year students in tertiary education. They provide an excellent opportunity to develop technical skills as well as helping to build a professional network at the beginning of a career.

Our paid internships are open to all second-year students. We welcome applications from those who have a clear desire to succeed in their chosen industry. Particular subject specialisms are required for some positions.

Apprenticeship Scheme

Our apprenticeship scheme for engineering maintenance is based on day release attendance at NVQ level 3 courses at North West London College in either building services or electro technology.  The remainder of the week is spent learning on the job and shadowing qualified engineers.

Apprentices are reviewed every 6-8 weeks to ensure they are receiving the right on the job training and relevant exposure to relevant systems and plant.

Apprentices are encouraged to photograph jobs from day 1 to begin building their NVQ portfolio.

Entry requirements are GCSE (or equivalent) in Maths, English, IT and ideally a scientific subject at Grade 4 which allows apprentices to study without the need to undertake key skills training.

Work Experience

Our work experience scheme allows young people to see first-hand what it is like to work in a professional environment. A placement usually lasts between 1-2 weeks in various departments. The scheme is aimed at students between the ages of 14 and 16 years. We encourage students to take this time to think about future employability and consider what they would like to do after education.

We help students with their personal development. Some of the experience we offer is practical, working with our construction team on building sites with supervisors. Others may be office based and, or in one of the Group’s many different business areas.

We are looking for students with good communication skills who want to participate as part of a team. We expect students to be well-presented and organised, especially in terms of time management.

We have a fantastic team of people who welcome students on work experience.
