Summer 2024 Internships (Autumn 2023 Applications)

Updated 8 November 2023 with SSE Finance Placement vacancy and M&G vacancy


Internships in finance and accounting roles for summer 2024 are now being advertised. As has been common in recent years, we expect there will be a high demand for roles next summer - we would therefore encourage you to apply as soon as possible, particularly if roles are scheduled to close soon. (Companies can also close opportunities before the advertised closing date if they receive sufficient applications, so please do not assume that vacancies will remain open until the advertised date.)

It is important to remember how important a summer internship can be to your future career prospects. All of our 2024 graduating students who already have a graduate job offer, have this as a result of a successful internship this summer - this means they can now focus on their studies during their final year rather than job applications.

We would also encourage you to apply to a wide range of opportunities, so you can keep your options open – we regularly see some students only submitting a small number of applications who are then unsuccessful in finding a summer internship. (As a guideline, most of our students had to submit at least 10-12 applications in order to achieve a role in summer 2023.)

  • If you have already secured an internship for summer 2024, please can you provide us with details (including your employer, the role title, the location and duration)
  • If you are still looking for a role for summer 2024, please let us know what applications you have submitted and if you have any specific areas of interest

As ICAS Foundation students, we do expect you to be proactive in making applications.

The ICAS jobs website ( is a good starting place to see what is available. We are also updating our social media feeds with vacancies on Fridays, so please watch out for these on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

The ICAS Foundation Student Development Toolkit has a range of information and links to help you with job applications – it is available on our website at We would also encourage you to use any additional resources available through your university careers service, who can assist with application and interview preparation, and point you towards other helpful websites to find opportunities.

The ICAS Foundation wishes you the best of success in your search for an internship. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about the application process.
