Morgan Stanley has launched its biggest ever recruitment programme, recruiting 75 university graduates, 25 apprentices and 104 interns over the next few months.

The graduates will be recruited primarily from universities across Scotland for various roles across technology, operations, finance, legal, compliance and fund services.

The apprenticeships will provide opportunities for Scottish high school leavers from S5 and S6, earning while they learn in the finance, operations and technology teams. They will also be able to pursue a degree qualification at the same time.

The 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.

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, apprentices and interns to the Glasgow office.”

Applications for both graduate and intern opportunities open in September, with a closing deadline at the end of November, while applications for apprenticeships will open in September and close in early March 2023.

Five of the interns in Glasgow will also become recipients of a Morgan Stanley Future Generation Scholarship, joining five existing recipients in the city.

These scholarships are designed to support the advancement of talent from ethnic minorities and those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, providing financial support and advice to help interns complete their degree courses.

Graduate apprentices joining Morgan Stanley’s finance team in Glasgow will undertake a five-year Masters degree in accounting, in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University and also qualify professionally with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Those joining operations will undertake a BSc in business management in partnership with the University of Strathclyde, while those joining technology 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 Glasgow is also hosting its High School Insight Week this October, with applications opening in August.

First and second year university students will also have the opportunity to undertake Spring Insight Programmes with Morgan Stanley’s various divisions during February and March 2023. Application for those programmes will open soon.

Morgan Stanley runs its various programmes with a range of partner organisations including schools, universities, Developing the Young Workforce, Scottish Financial Enterprise’s Young Professionals programme, Young Person’s Guarantee and social mobility charity Career Ready.
