The Role:  
Do you enjoy problem-solving? Do you see problems or opportunities? Interested in kick-starting a career in IT and finance? 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 designer and application support analyst. 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. 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 designing, building and supporting 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.
