Are you looking for a summer internship that is technically challenging? One that develops commercial acumen alongside your technical skills?

Within LGC is "Future Cities", comprising of three sector-specialist teams: Urban Regeneration (UR), Digital Infrastructure and Clean Energy.
The Intern will be placed with UR team, whose purpose is to invest Group capital into improving the built environment in cities that have seen relatively low recent investment, including supporting the government's "Build Back Better" and "Levelling Up" initiatives. The UR team has investments in various properties (including office, residential, retail, media and science) in cities across the UK (such as Leeds, Manchester, Cardiff and Newcastle).
The Intern’s tasks will include but not be limited to:
- Helping to perform research tasks to support the assumptions behind UR's investments
- Assisting with due diligence tasks to support investment decisions, for example reviewing commercial property assumptions across our direct investment pipeline
- Contributing toward the updating and review of assumptions in the Excel cashflow models that support UR's investments
- Collating information for LGC's internal reporting and compliance requirements
- Supporting the team in preparing Powerpoint presentations for our Investment Committee
- Involvement in the day-to-day management of our investment partners
- Improving team processes with fresh perspectives and ideas
There will also be opportunities to support the Digital Infrastructure and Clean Energy teams if of interest.
First and foremost, we’re looking for people with an inquisitive mind and a desire to learn. We’re not expecting prior industry experience, but we’ll want to see that you have the tools to develop quickly. The ideal candidate will be:
- Interested in the built environment/commercial property and passionate about LGC's/the UR team's social purpose
- Willing to learn, inquisitive and a critical thinker
- Proactive and enthusiastic
- Organised and methodical
- Friendly, approachable and comfortable collaborating with colleagues and stakeholders
- Comfortable using Microsoft Office applications (Excel, Powerpoint, Word)
- On track for a 2:1 degree in any subject
An internship offers you the chance to gain valuable work experience and develop and refine skills that will be useful for you in your future career.

Does this opportunity excite you but you’re not 100% sure if you meet all the requirements for the role? Or are you concerned that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t possible given your personal circumstances?
