This coming January, Jane Street is excited to host our FOCUS programme at our London office. Over the course of two days, you will participate in classes, discussions, and activities that are structured to provide a broad overview of the work our trading, software development, and business development teams do. With countless opportunities to connect with other attendees and employees from across the firm, FOCUS provides an in-depth look at what it’s like to work at Jane Street.

Students will arrive in London on the afternoon of the 10th January and will depart the morning of the 13th January. Jane Street will cover all travel expenses to and from London, including housing, meals, and a variety of social events throughout the programme.

Don’t have a background in finance? No worries — a large number of Jane Street employees don’t come from a financial background. If you’re curious about the work we do and want to learn more about what a career in finance could look like, we want to hear from you!

How to apply:

We ask that you submit a resume, along with a 150-word statement about yourself and why you are interested in attending FOCUS.

The deadline to apply for this event is Sunday, 19th November 2023 at 11:59pm GMT.


We will update you on your application status by Monday, 27th November. If you have any questions, please reach out to focus@janestreet.com.

We hope to see you soon —
