Industrial Placement – Finance
Ready to see what you can do? Join us as a Finance Intern and be brave, be real, and work together with us. Work alongside finance professionals who keep our commercial cogs turning, make an impact and earn £25,000 while doing it!
What to expect
Get hands-on experience in our Finance Business Partnering teams. Take guidance and support from experienced colleagues. Enjoy opportunities to help us drive projects forward and solve problems using your own logic and initiative. By the end of the internship, you’ll have brand new skills, advanced knowledge and loads more confidence – all helping you power through the final year of university!
We operate a hybrid working environment, aiming for an average of 2 to 3 days per week in the office, with strong emphasis on maintaining flexibility based on our dynamic business needs.
“From the get-go, I quickly became a valued and relied on member of the team, with many opportunities to add value and drive forward the success of the organisation. The Finance Grad and Intern Community provides a strong support network, from the Leads who encourage constant growth and development, to your peers who help motivate you along the way. My placement year opened my eyes to the potential opportunities in Finance and Accounting, allowing to develop many vital skills that I was able to take back to university and apply to my degree.”

What we look for
We want to see your motivation, resilience and curiosity. What we really care about is that you’re a hard-working that can’t resist the urge to explore new opportunities, you have the confidence to question the ways we work, and the desire and drive.
You must have a predicted 2:1 or above. But it doesn’t matter what subject – we’re more interested in your qualities than your specific qualifications. A desire to route your finance career towards a CIMA qualification is preferred as this will help align you to joining our graduate scheme after graduation.
We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society. So we’re keen to hear from candidates from all backgrounds and circumstances.
