Training & Profiles

We recognise that development is key for you to fulfil your professional potential and for us to deliver on our business commitments. That’s why we’ve created a scheme where when you take ownership of your career aspirations, we’ll give you support, training and practical experience to help you succeed.

First things first: your career with us starts with an induction to welcome you to your chosen UK business. Here, you’ll meet fellow graduates and find out more about what your future holds. Then, shortly after joining, you’ll be assigned a mentor who can act as a source of advice and insight when you need it.

You’ll also participate in ‘Graduate Developing You’, a series of development modules delivered by Impact International, who are an award winning learning and development provider. The course, that brings graduates together from across the different businesses, aims to help you better understand yourself and others to drive better performance.

During the GDF you’ll also attend our UK Graduate Conference, which brings together graduates from across the globe to network, engage with a diverse range of managers and learn more about the inspiring work we do. There is also the opportunity to celebrate success through the Graduate Awards ceremony which takes place at the Gala dinner on Day 1.

All of this is designed to complement your placements, fuel your ambition, and give a depth to your training and career.


£28,000 starting salary for Graduate Development Framework and Applied Intelligence graduate scheme. £30,000 starting salary for Finance Leader Development Programme and SIGMA leadership programme.
