In our Finance team, the size of our business gives our graduates a varied experience, allowing them to thrive. You will be supported through your CIMA qualification with paid study leave as well as getting hands-on experience across our business by collaborating with our international markets, associated businesses and specialist finance teams. Over the three years you’ll learn from experts in various teams from Investor Relations and Audit to Group Reporting and Product Finance.
Our graduates will have the opportunity to gain a solid understanding of finance as well as exposure to specialist areas while they move around the team. Whatever your role, you’ll have an instant impact on our business and help to make changes for the better.
Our programme will give you a range of opportunities, working in a number of areas. You could have the opportunity to work with our Product team working on strategic projects or supporting to write reports for our leadership team. Whether it’s building a wide variety of skills giving you a great foundation into the world of finance, or developing your communication skills as well as analysis, insight and financial accounting. This will provide you with a great start for a career in finance.
You will need to be a team player who is able to use your skills and apply them to specific problems and obstacles faced each day at work. It’s important that you have an interest in a career in finance and are keen to work in a fast-paced environment.
We kick off our graduate programmes with an induction where you will learn more about our business and your programme plus it’s a great opportunity for you to meet your cohort. You will then be introduced to your team where you will get to know more about the area you will be working in.
Within the first six months you will spend two weeks working in one of our stores which you will be able to select from our store list. You will find out more about this at your induction. The time you will spend in store will help you to learn how our stores operate, how they link to your role and help you to understand our customers.
You will experience a range of rotational placements which will help to give you a breadth of knowledge about your area and our business. You will find out more about your placements during your induction.
We encourage self-led development and we support this with a range of e-learning and face to face learning sessions. You will be able to use your own initiative to identify your own learning needs and choose the right training for you. You will also have the opportunity to learn from others to help you grow your skills.
