What do we expect from you?

You might imagine you’ll need a finance degree and a wardrobe full of grey suits. Not true. We’re smart casual in the office, informal in how we work together and we value people with diverse skills, backgrounds and ideas.

Self-Motivated

Customer-focused

Full of Bright Ideas

We’re here to nurture talent, ensuring that all of our undergraduates enjoy a fantastic learning experience that helps them prepare for their future career. But of course, we can’t do everything for you. We’ll provide the right environment for learning, then you need to bring the initiative, ambition and self-motivation to really accelerate your development.

Your Academic Background

We’re looking for bright, smart, logical thinkers who are going to thrive in an environment where there are problems to solve, deadlines to meet and projects to deliver. So you’ll have a good academic record, from GCSE through to A-level. Now, you’re in your second year of study at University and really starting to think carefully about what you want to do next. If your degree is Business or Economics focused, that’s perfect for Financial Services. However, don’t forget we have lots of other roles too, so every degree discipline is welcome. 

You must be a second year student, studying for a degree at University, with the option to take a sandwich year

You should also be clear about what you want to achieve in the future

Your Personal Qualities

Academic records only tell us part of the story. Everyone is different, and diverse personalities, people and ideas bring something new into our business. We welcome that, and we welcome people who are confident, who can express themselves and who love the idea that they can make something happen. After all, we’re not going to wrap you in cotton wool for 12 months. You must be:

Able to work well in a team

Capable of engaging people at all levels

Be ready to speak up, bring ideas and show your potential

Your Approach

In a word, adaptable. The 12 months that you’re with us will throw lots of different challenges and opportunities your way. Are you ready to make the most of them? You’ll need to be open-minded, practical and positive, ready to change how you think and keep learning, each and every day. Whatever you expect, we promise you’ll feel more rewarded, challenged and valued than you ever imagined. You need to: 

Be enthusiastic and passionate

Take ownership of your development

Bring initiative to every new challenge

Do you share our values?

For us, Undergraduate Placements are an opportunity to identify and nurture the leaders of the future. It’s also important, therefore, that you already identify with our company values and recognise why we share them and why they are important.
