Do you enjoy problem-solving? Do you see problems or opportunities? Interested in kick-starting a career in IT and finance but don't have an IT degree? This is an exciting opportunity to join a City based firm delivering mission-critical infrastructure to the financial markets. This is a graduate programme where we will develop your skills in IT and finance from scratch. During the scheme you will develop programming skills which will be built upon as a test analyst and then as a designer. Each new placement will build upon the last. You will explore different aspects of the project life-cycle.

Our successful employees come from a diverse range of academic disciplines including Physics, Geography, Mathematics, Chemistry and Classics. What they all have in common however is the appropriate mindset - we promote a collaborative team spirit, and recognise the importance of mutually supportive networks, working together to understand and meet our client needs. Applying conscientious endeavour as part of a team is valued more highly than individualistic and competitive approaches.

Your responsibilities will include building and testing software on important projects in the financial markets. Your business skills will be acquired through the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment programme, and technical skills developed in association with The British Computer Society.

Required Skills:
We are not looking for previous IT or financial knowledge and interpersonal skills are valued as highly as technical ability. Applications are invited from 2016 and 2017 graduates across all classes of honours in non-IT disciplines. We are seeking highly-motivated individuals who are able to demonstrate the following:

• An honours degree in a non-Computer Science discipline
• A strong analytical mindset combined with accomplished problem-solving and logical reasoning capabilities
• Good numeracy skills, with attention to detail and high quality output
• Ability to critically analyse and provide feedback in a constructive and empathetic manner
• Good interpersonal skills, able to work as part of a team and build collaborative working partnerships with other business units
• Ability to communicate well, both orally and in writing
• Flexible and open-minded - receptive to change and new ideas
• Self-motivated, inquisitive and eager to learn
