What does it involve?

Our finance function carries responsibilities across the full breadth of our business activity, providing us with the sound financial advice we need.

Our three-year Finance Graduate Programme comprises three 12-month placements covering a range of financial disciplines and business areas within which we operate. You’ll be given full financial and accounting training, and complete an accounting qualification (you can choose ACA, ACCA or CIMA). Opportunities for third-year placements extend into specialist areas including Investor Relations and M&A. At the end of the programme, you should have the full qualification and experience to build a strong future career in finance.

Throughout the programme you’ll be supported in your studies – with course funding and time off for study – and in your placements. However, you’ll need to be a passionate self-starter with real integrity and the ability to communicate your ideas.

Responsibility comes fast so your analytical mind will need to be complemented by outstanding people skills and the flexibility to perform in a fast-paced environment.
