When I joined IG as a graduate, I had plenty of passion and motivation. I was however lacking in experience and wasn't in a position to know where my skills would best be utilised within IG. To this end, the graduate programme served to give me an excellent overview of the business. I was able to spend a sustained period of time in several departments, in the process gaining a deeper understanding of how they contribute to the overall success of IG. Moreover, I was able to network and build valuable relationships with colleagues globally as well as develop a very diverse set of skills, which have helped me immensely ever since.
