Finance Graduate Programme

About The Role

As a mutual, looking after our member’s money effectively is of upmost importance. Graduates on our Finance programme have the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of all areas within our Finance department to understand how we do this. You can expect placements in a range of areas, including Liquidity and Capital Planning, Financial Reporting and Control, Financial Planning and Business Partnering. Placements within these areas give you the perfect platform to expand your technical skills and knowledge, understanding how to deliver key commercial messaging in an insightful and articulate way.

We’re looking for team players, individuals who are great with numbers but who also pride themselves on their networking, influencing and communication skills. By utilising all of these qualities you’ll have the opportunity to work on interpreting complex figures into simple concepts as well as building relationships by partnering with other key areas of the Society. All of this experience is accompanied by study support towards a relevant professional qualification helping you to achieve your career goals.
