This is your opportunity to join Baillie Gifford, a leading independent global investment management partnership. Today, with in excess of £352 billion under management and more than 700 clients across the globe, we have over 1,400 employees working at our head office in Edinburgh.

Let’s forget about your degree for a moment, and instead focus on you. Are you an inquisitive thinker with the imagination to see the world differently? Do you have the curiosity to explore new possibilities and the desire to create solutions that drive future development? Then we’d like to meet you. We think our investments aren’t all that different from the graduates we look for – it’s all about potential. If you join one of our graduate programmes or internship opportunities, our next investment will be you.

We’re proud of our company culture– whether that’s our focus on client service, the support we offer our employees or the impact we have on the world as a whole. Below is just a short introduction to who we are, but you can find out more about us and our Early Careers opportunities website.

Client focus

Everyone at Baillie Gifford, regardless of their role, is focussed on delivering the very best for our clients. To do this, we need to be forward thinking, open to change and prepared to evolve. This means never just following the crowd and always seeking new and better ways to do things.

Learning culture

We champion continuous curiosity and believe that everyone within the firm (partners included) should be encouraged to expand their learning at every opportunity. That’s why we regularly invite world-renowned academics, business leaders and authors to engage with the firm and continually challenge our thinking.

Diversity and inclusion

We seek diversity in all its forms and recognise that an inclusive workplace is fundamental to our success as a business. Fostering a culture of inclusivity enables us to attract, develop and retain diverse talent, encourage the free exchange of ideas, and enhances our relationships with clients and companies across the world. We work to ensure that all our colleagues feel valued, and that their work is always recognised and rewarded. 

Social responsibility

Our approach to community engagement and charitable work aligns with how we approach investment. We like to partner with organisations over the longer-term and gain a deeper understanding of their work and goals. When we consider supporting organisations we assess their potential in a purely philanthropic way, looking to make long-term contributions to help them deliver services and drive change that’s sustainable.

Wellbeing

Good mental and physical health is vital for us all. That’s why we’re always working to ensure our staff feel supported – through open conversations, social networks and policies that make people feel valued. The wellbeing of our colleagues is a top priority for us. If we want to have healthy, happy, motivated people who take pride in working here, then we have a responsibility to ensure we’re taking their wellbeing seriously.
