Graduate training scheme

Our rotational graduate scheme involves three month rotations in different job roles, which could include finance, investment, operations and marketing. You’ll build your career path and specialise at the end of the two year programme. While moving across the business, you’ll get a feel for what the departments do, how they fit together, and where they’re going.

With previous graduates and senior managers as your mentors, we’ll support you through professional qualifications, while you find the career that’s right for you.
