We offer a supportive environment that encourages innovation and creativity whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance. You will be joining one of Europe's leading Investment Management firms where you can expect real responsibility and recognition from day one.

The Opportunity:

M&G has a number of initiatives running currently within the Portfolio with several others expected to kick off imminently.
