Please note that we ask that applicants have completed their undergraduate studies within the last three years, or be due to graduate in summer 2022. As such, you should have obtained an undergraduate degree within the last three years (since the summer of 2019) or be due to graduate in summer 2022.

We require that applicants have at least a 2:1 undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in any discipline. You will also need to have the right to work in the UK for three years from the start of the scheme. We regret we are unable to sponsor the graduate scheme.

*You can be considered for both streams (General Finance and Financial Accounting). Please include your reasons why you want to apply for both/either.

Once the application window has closed, applicants will be shortlisted and a small proportion of them will be invited for interview. We receive a very high number of applications every year, with around 200 applications last year.
