What we look for

We look for potential – not a background in finance. And there are two reasons for that. One, our outstanding training will give you all the skills you need. And two, different backgrounds make us stronger. It’s because of people bringing fresh perspectives that we’ve grown so quickly, and so successfully. For us, potential is made up of:

  • a strong interest in finance
  • good commercial awareness
  • a readiness to go the extra mile
  • high levels of motivation and integrity
  • excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • plenty of team spirit
  • a strong work ethic and a focus on results
  • being proactive and eager to learn
  • an eye for detail and accuracy

For our analyst programmes you must be in your final year or have graduated in the last 12 months. For our summer internships, you must be in your second year (or third year if you’re on a four-year course). For both programmes, you’ll need a 2:1 or above. For more information on these, as well as hearing directly from our people please read our new digital brochure.

Yes, depending on which business area you’re hired into. In some business areas you may be able to rotate across different groups to get broad exposure to the work. Other business areas want their hires to develop deeper, specialist expertise so recruit directly into a specific desk. You can find out more in Our Programmes.

Although our summer internship programme is only open to students in their penultimate year, we do run a Female Insight Day and a BAME insight day for students in their second and final year of study. Find out more about how to come and meet us.
