We kickstart your career
Giving you training, experience, coaching, mentoring and the opportunity to grow your business network.
Our focus is on our people.
Both Directors had the good fortune to join strong graduate programmes and were given many opportunities to grow – via role rotations, education, coaching and mentoring.
Consequently, we strive to place our employees with clients where we know they will grow.
We provide a learning pathway to ensure our employees are qualified to a gold standard, giving them a competitive edge to further their career.
We create a programme of webinars and events over the three years.
Our employees are personally mentored by the Directors, who have performed or been accountable for most roles our employees will be assigned to, and their experience and support delivers success for both employees and our clients.
What we look for:
Talented and motivated graduates :
- With a minimum 2:1 degree in Finance/ Maths/ Accountancy/ Economics or similar discipline.
