This apprenticeship program at our Bournemouth & London offices offers a comprehensive introduction to the world of financial services and the chance to obtain industry-recognized qualifications while working alongside our expert professionals.
You’ll develop your professional network, hear from senior leaders and learn from the best in the business. By applying your classroom learning to make meaningful contributions to our business, you’ll have both the technical and practical skills to take your career in any direction.
You’ll join one of our teams – investment operations, technology, compliance or finance -- making contributions to our business as you study. Dedicated professionals will guide your classwork while our business experts will help you gain new skills on the job.
Besides classroom training, you’ll have a network of peers and our employee assistance program to help you navigate the firm and to support you as you pursue your certifications and career.
Training & development
You will have a dedicated training day each week where you will receive a combination of online and in-person lectures working towards the industry-recognized CISI Investment Operations Certificate and a Level 4 Investment Operations Specialist Apprenticeship initially, followed by the opportunity to progress to the CISI Diploma in Investment Operations and a Level 6 Financial Services Professional Apprenticeship. Upon completing a final piece of non-apprenticeship coursework you will then be awarded a full honours degree in Applied Finance from our Russell Group training provider University of Exeter.
Classes will be administered through virtual lectures combined with our award-winning internal training team. You’ll also have access to our elective personal development training to help improve your communication, presentation and interview skills.
While your day-to-day responsibilities will vary based on your team, you’ll make a meaningful contribution to our business from the beginning. We have apprentices work in cash management, settlement, project management roles, anti-money laundering, vendor management, trade support functions, accounting and many other areas of operations.
You’ll gain the skills needed to take your career in any direction you want. We’ll also help you develop your communication, presentation and other softer skills through networking events, senior speaker series and mentoring opportunities.
We’re looking for highly motived students who have a passion for financial services and who are looking to get ahead in their careers. You should have a drive to learn new skills and the flexibility to take on different tasks. Those who are good time managers and hard workers do well in this intense program that combines work and study.
