MORGAN Stanley (NYSE: MS) today announced it has launched its 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 Finance, Operations and Technology 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.” 

Five of the interns in Glasgow will also become recipients of a Morgan Stanley Future Generation Scholarship, joining five existing recipients in Glasgow. These scholarships are designed to support the advancement of talent from ethnic minorities and those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, providing financial support, mentoring 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 (ACCA). 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 highly successful High School Insight Week this October, with applications opening in August, with further opportunities for High School students through other events in November and in February. 

1st and 2nd 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 University Graduate, Graduate Apprentice, Summer University Internship and High School Insight programmes in close collaboration with a wide range of partner organisations including schools, universities, Developing the Young Workforce (DYW), Scottish Financial Enterprise’s Young Professionals programme, Young Person’s Guarantee and Career Ready, the national social mobility charity. 

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.
