"Excellent training including a two-week graduate induction, constant training on the job and many courses available via the intranet (Excel, professional development, coding etc)."
Graduate, London
"Lots of soft skills training. Most job training was on the job and from speaking with my manager. Time was given by the company for studying on other schemes that included exams."
Graduate, London
"The training programmes have been good. We had a two-week induction at the start of the graduate scheme that introduced us to the organisation and provided technical and soft skills training that has been beneficial ever since."
Finance, Graduate, London
"CIMA is fully sponsored by the scheme. There are also a number of soft skills and financial markets courses that are given as part of induction. Beyond this, informal on-the-job learning is great – it's a steep learning curve, but worth it."
Midlevel, London
"There is limited formal training through the programme. However, the company has a front-line learning team that runs online and in-person courses. I've done a number of courses in Excel, strategic thinking, presentation skills and introduction to project management."
Graduate, London
"The external provider DBL teaches general skills for employees and we receive graduate training at the start."
Finance, Graduate, London
"The initial handover period is a week with the graduate who was in the position before you where they train you to do the role. Then, after two weeks you have a two-week induction period away from your role with other graduates from all locations. Following this you learn about the company through different presentations, team building sessions and self-development sessions."
Graduate, London
"I haven't undertaken any technical training because I don't feel I need it. However, it is available if required. Soft skills are supported on the graduate scheme and I attend a workshop every two months to develop these skills further."
Graduate, Nottingham

"I have been on several courses including: negotiation Eikon Training, Customer Value Financial Services. I think the company could offer more sales training to sales graduates."
Graduate, London
"The training for new graduates is reasonably strong. While not Wall Street style analyst training, you do get a good overview of financial markets, best practices for feedback, excel and transitioning from a graduate to a professional."
Graduate, New York
"The company doesn't do much 'training' in terms of the things you'll use in the office; however, my line manager is quite happy to help me in anything. They've given us a crash course on financial markets and company products, assisting us with our excel skills and understanding of the financial world."
Graduate, London
"I was given a two week training course when I first joined. I was also given a one week training course on the specific business unit that I was in so I understand the products, focus, and strategy."
Graduate, London
"Not much job specific training. Maybe a public speaking or career workshop class here or there but most of the role specific learning is done on-the-job."
Midlevel, London
"A lot of the training involves learning company culture and company-specific products. These are very useful; however, I would have liked to receive a bit more training on Excel and other program based learning."
Graduate, New York
"The training could be improved to have tailored training according to the area or role you have applied for. However, they provide soft skills training which I found helpful, training on different products such as Eikon, learning about financial markets, etc."
Graduate, London
