Job description

Our Finance Graduate Programme is designed to bring enthusiastic, intelligent and innovative graduates, in the early stages of their careers, into the Finance and Accounting team.

  • You will study for a professional accountancy qualification (CIMA), receiving financial support and paid study leave
  • You will be coached and developed by the Early Careers team and Graduate Programme Manager throughout the programme, through structured development and on-the-job training, and be accountable for the use of your own time and managing your personal development and career profile;
