Welcome from the Scheme Director

Voted University of the Year by the Guardian 2023 and First in London by the QS World University Rankings for 2023, with a thriving community of around 8,000 staff and 22,000 students, Imperial College London is consistently recognised as being one of the world’s top 10 universities in science, engineering, business and medicine.

Imperial’s reputation for excellence attracts staff and students from around the world, creating a diverse, vibrant and intellectually stimulating environment in which the best can thrive. The wide variety of ways in which the Finance team supports the academic mission gives our staff the opportunity to develop a broad skill set from the time they first arrive. As well as the professional development available, university life gives individuals the chance to pursue a range of sporting, cultural and other interests and the work-life balance offered here is very good.

The College is looking to recruit graduates to join its 2024 Graduate Finance Scheme - a three-year programme designed to provide the candidate with extensive finance experience and the opportunity to gain a professional accountancy (CIMA) qualification as part of a Level 7 apprenticeship qualification.

The Graduate Finance Scheme is a fundamental part of the College’s talent management initiative. It aims to ensure that high potential individuals are developed and retained so that they may help to consolidate, and build upon, our reputation as a world-class university.

The training scheme is only as good as those who apply and are selected. The scheme is stretching – it has to be, because the standards in our support services have to match those in our academic areas and we are determined to retain our world-class status. If you wish to make a significant contribution in your job and, at the same time, receive full support to obtain a globally recognised and highly respected financial qualification, then please take a look in more detail at what the scheme entails. We would love to hear from you if you like the sound of the scheme and think you have the qualities required to excel here.
