Operations is the front line of defence for Morgan Stanley’s financial well-being. One of the largest divisions in the Firm, Operations has diverse responsibilities including correctly settling and recording millions of transactions per day, identifying and mitigating all operational risks, developing strong client relationships and partnering with technology
to realise the full potential of IT and e-solutions. Throughout, we continually seek ways to improve while actively supporting the development of new businesses, structures and markets.
The Operations Industrial Placement Programme is aimed at students in their penultimate year of university who are studying a sandwich course that involves a year in industry. The Programme runs annually, beginning in June. Students are placed in roles based on feedback from the interview process, their interests and the current business needs. Industrial Placement students will have support and supervision from experienced Operations professionals throughout their assignments.
In London, training begins with a Firmwide induction along with peers from other divisions of the Firm. This is followed by two days of classroom-based training covering product and industry knowledge, personal effectiveness, technical training and team-building activities. Industrial Placement students will also receive considerable on-the-job training as well as a series of “Lunch & Learns,” networking events, mentoring and work-shadowing opportunities. In Glasgow, similar training and events take place.
