BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. As a global investment manager and a leading provider of financial technology, our clients—from grandparents, doctors, and teachers to large institutions—turn to us for the solutions they need when planning for their most important goals. To achieve this, our workforce must reflect the diversity of our clients so that we can bring a wealth of perspectives and insights to solve their unique, complex challenges.

We already know that the best solutions result from the ideas and contributions of a diverse team of partners, and that more diverse teams tend to outperform homogeneous ones. But it’s not enough to focus solely on building a diverse workforce. We take it one step further and ensure that each and every employee feels included, respected and valued – that they belong. We are building a culture of innovation, curiosity, and compassion, one that enables every employee to make an impact.

We innovate to solve some of the world's most complex financial challenges and turn data into meaningful insights for our clients. Our breakthrough Aladdin platform unifies trading, risk management and reporting into one system connecting the information, people and technology needed to manage money. At BlackRock, we are building the investment technology platform of the future.

Our Fast-Track to Fintech insight event is designed to provide female students with an interest in technology the opportunity to get a taster into the world’s largest asset manager and our evolving technology landscape. You’ll learn how we reinvent the client experience, re-imagine how data flows across the organisation and integrate technology into investment decision-making. Participants will engage in talks, workshops, and networking events to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to build a fulfilling career. There will also be the opportunity to be considered for our 2023 Summer Internship Program.

This accelerator event will take place in our London & Edinburgh offices on Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th October, and virtually on Friday 28th October 2022. Participants selected for the accelerator must be available during all three days. The event provides an insight into Aladdin Client Services, Data Operations and Technology Operations in Edinburgh, or Software Engineering in London.
