Job description

Are you looking to kick-start a successful career in the IT industry?

At JHC, we are looking for bright, ambitious graduates to join our team as Trainee Software Developers. We currently have graduate positions in our London Office.

Within this role you’ll be involved in software support and development projects of varying size and complexity, working with our clients to provide them with new and innovative software solutions that help them to successfully meet their business goals.

No prior experience in financial services or in software development is required, as we provide a training programme covering all aspects of the role, including the programming languages we use, how to write specifications, and the different functionalities of our core product FIGARO. You will also receive training on the stockbroking and fund management industries, our core software system, how our clients use FIGARO, and how to analyse our clients’ business requirements.

Within two years, trainees will normally progress to fully qualified programmers within JHC. Beyond this we provide staff with excellent career development opportunities, and pride ourselves on developing from within, testament to which is that the majority of the senior management team joined JHC initially as graduates.

Career opportunities within JHC are highly varied, with successful candidates able to further their careers by staying within a technical role, or moving into other areas such as project management, senior analyst/product owner, team leading, consultancy, or client relationship management.


  • 25 days paid annual leave per year plus public holidays.
  • Company share option plan
  • Company bonus scheme
  • £30 per month entertainment allowance
  • Cycle to Work scheme
  • Private medical healthcare scheme - top level cover.
  • Health Shield cash plan scheme - able to claim back money on everyday healthcare costs such as dentist, opticians etc.
  • Automatically enrolled into company pension scheme
  • Death in service – four x base salary
  • Childcare voucher scheme

Person requirements

This role will involve working on client sites so candidates must be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills, both spoken and written, as well as the ability to explain very technical ideas in a simple and easy to understand way. In addition they should be able to quickly understand and respond to a client’s needs, able to adapt to changing situations, and work well to deadlines.

Qualifications and experience requirements

Graduates will need to have a good degree, and a strong numerical background (probably with an A grade in A-level mathematics or equivalent). They must have strong analytical skills, good attention to detail and strong problem-solving abilities. They will be confident, out-going people with an interest in helping others and learning about the financial sector, and stockbroking in particular. Experience in a customer facing job, even part time or on a voluntary basis, will be a definite advantage.
