Finance the Future

Local Government Graduate Finance Programme

The established London Treasurers’ Graduate Finance Scheme aims to bring together local authorities and other public services annually to recruit and train graduates who want to pursue a career in public finance. It’s all about putting talented graduates through a secure, four year programme that will form the first part of their journey towards senior management.

Your opportunity to make a difference

This is a bespoke rotational scheme, which will give you exposure to every element of public finance whilst attached to a specific local authority or other public service. The scheme has been carefully designed to maximise your potential with work varying from key corporate processes to advising senior management and working on challenging project initiatives. Your work will include but not be limited to, budget preparation and monitoring, payroll, pensions, treasury, systems, internal audit and accounting.

You will also be sponsored to study for the unique and prestigious Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) Professional Qualification.

This is more than just a way to achieve a great qualification and be paid to do it though. Being chosen for the scheme will allow you to influence key decisions that matter to communities, enhancing people’s lives.

You will:

  • Have, or expect to achieve, a minimum of a 2:2 (from any degree background)
  • Have GCSE’s (or equivalent) in Maths and English (Grade C or above)
  • Demonstrate strong numeric, written, oral and presentation skills
  • Be computer literate
  • Practice first-class time management skills

Your formal qualifications aren’t the most important requirement though - your drive to succeed and desire to make a difference is. We want people who aren’t afraid of taking on a challenge, we want people who know they can make communities better and we want people who care about their public sector colleagues and the work they are doing.

We can offer:

Excellent packages including competitive salaries, Local Government / Public Service pension schemes and generous holidays.
Flexible working environment, including a great work/life balance ethic.
Flexible start dates from May 2018 for successful applicants.

Deadline for applications is: 26 February 2018
