"Good schedule of training available for employees. Employer has paid for classes for me to maintain my Spanish language skills, which is very important to me."
Graduate, London
"As part of the graduate scheme there was a compulsory training course, the IMC (investment management certificate), for which excellent training was provided by M&G. Aside from this it's very much up to the employee to determine any useful/appropriate courses. M&G are generally happy to fund such pursuits."
Graduate, London
"One month of training when I initially joined teaching us about presentation skills, writing skills, investment administration, fund management, derivatives, financial modelling etc. Mandatory completion of the IMC (investment management certificate) qualification, which related to the investment management industry. On going sessions where you sign up for a course that you may feel you want to learn more in as per the work you do. Examples could be Excel or PowerPoint courses, among others. CIMA (chartered institute of management accountants) qualification where I'm learning about management accounting and trying to link things learned to real-life scenarios performed at M&G."
