Today’s financial markets are changing – perhaps faster than ever before. Emerging technologies, new competitors and customers' changing expectations are just a few of the things that are shaping our industry.
Our role, in Finance, goes beyond accounting. We analyse those changes and advise our colleagues and customers across the UK on their next move. We’re here to uncover patterns they haven’t yet seen, assess the financial impact, and help them shape new strategies.
Given the speed at which these changes are happening, our work has a noticeable impact on the Group and, as a UK financial services leader, allows us to take a transformational and leading role in Helping Britain Recover.
Are you resourceful and passionate about building great relationships? If you are, you should think about joining us in Finance.
We are trusted advisors to the business. We come from diverse backgrounds but we are all analytically minded, pragmatic and resilient. We try to see things in a different light; taking large amounts of complex information and uncovering the stories we tell. And, once we understand how a business works, we can develop strategies that help transform it.
Whatever your degree, if you love finding solutions and are excited to learn from colleagues across all levels of our business, we’ll help you to grow as the first stage of becoming a Finance specialist and a future leader of the Group.
This three-year scheme consists of four placements, where you’ll discover what it means to be a key partner in decision-making. Your placements will be in:
Core Finance (Bristol)
Insight & Analysis (London)
Business Partnering (London)
Along the way, we’ll support your studies towards a leading, industry-recognised professional accounting qualification, with plenty of study support along the way. And, given that Finance supports all of our business areas, you’ll have every opportunity to develop a diverse network of colleagues and contacts across the Group.
By the end of the scheme, you’ll have greater awareness of your abilities and interests, and a genuine understanding of how your work makes an impact.
We also offer an Actuarial scheme within our Insurance Finance team, under our insurance brand, Scottish Widows.
This rotational programme gives you the chance to train as an actuary, working to deliver fair outcomes for customers, while ensuring the company remains in strong financial health.
You first placement will be in Bristol, one of our major Finance hubs, where you will have the chance to spend more time with some of your fellow graduates. This will be followed by three placements in London.
We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.
(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
