  • Controlling
  • Risk Management 
  • Accounting
  • Planning & Reporting 
  • Economic Evaluation

  • Investor Relations
  • … and many more

Our Graduate Programme has been designed  to give you the chance to shape your own career path and personal development, and the support you need to make it a success. You’ll be assigned an graduate buddy and a senior mentor within your field  who can advise you on rotations and introduce you to key people within the finance business.

We also offer a wide range of development opportunities, including networking events where you’ll get to meet senior managers and board members.  You’ll have opportunities to attend various webinars and technical training courses, as well as a business school week every six months with real business applications to help you embed your learning.
