Accounting & Finance Graduate Programme

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

The Finance Division is responsible for all financial and management reporting processes across Bank of Ireland Group, and ensuring that all reporting is appropriately governed. Over the course of three years, the Accounting & Finance Graduate Programme comprises three rotations, one per year, which will give you the opportunity to work within a range of business areas across the division.

The Programme

Each programme stream offers a rotational experience across different areas in the Bank. Each rotation is specifically developed to enable Graduates to develop the vital skills that will accelerate your development and growth.

During your three rotations, you will build strong management, interpersonal and technical skills, as well as getting exposure to business critical projects in a fast paced environment.

You are empowered throughout to seek new experiences and expand your network through cross collaboration. We ensure you experience different areas of the business, or contribute to meaningful transformation projects that support our Group strategy.

Your final rotation will see accelerated responsibility in your role, applying your learning to date. You will also cap the experience off by taking part in a Graduate project challenge which is supported with funded prizes.

The opportunity

By the end of the three-year programme, you will have received a wide range of experience across various functions within Finance & Accounting including Group Treasury. This will include exposure to internal management reporting and external financial reporting (including interim and annual statutory accounts), pre-close statements, published accounts and investor briefings.

This programme will build your expertise in MI and data analytics – and comprehensive product knowledge in the areas of sophisticated treasury and financial instruments, credit/market/liquidity risk, balance sheet management and capital requirements.

As part of the programme the exposure you get to colleagues across numerous divisions will allow you to build a substantial network in different business areas. Through our unique Digital Academy, you will also be able to explore opportunities and future career paths, as well as receiving top-class mentoring through the Bank of Ireland Mentorship Programme.

Members of the Graduate Programme have strong visibility in Bank of Ireland with regular touchpoints with Leadership, including the CEO and Executive Committee.

Our Graduate Programme is often a feeder into one of Bank of Ireland’s talent programmes which are developed to accelerate the growth of identified high-performing individuals.

What you will get in return

You will gain an understanding of how the financial reporting process works for a large publicly quoted company, together with an appreciation of the importance of internal control, with a key focus on SOX requirements.

You will receive considerable assistance to support you in attaining an accountancy qualification, which is a requirement for any applicant to the programme.

In addition, each Graduate will embark on a bespoke two-year Digital Development Plan, to uplift digital skills and capabilities to ensure they are equipped for the Future of Work. Our hybrid working model offers colleagues greater flexibility in how and where they work, meaning that the traditional 9 – 5 office base will be less prevalent, with work from home, digital collaboration and hot desking options commonplace.

Our Graduates build an outstanding community in Bank of Ireland, and while we are working in a less face to face environment, Graduates will have their own Digital Hangout, which makes it easy to interact, socialise and share ideas with other Graduates.

Bank of Ireland Group is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to fostering an inclusive workplace which values and benefits from the diversity of our workforce.
