Finance is a fundamental part of New Look. Not only is this department responsible for processing transactions to keep the ‘cogs’ of the business turning and tracking and reporting the performance of the business, it’s also where the management team goes for insight and guidance. As part of this programme, we’re looking for future leaders who can operate in this fast-paced, high performing environment.

Here at New Look we’re able to offer our successful graduates a three-year rotational programme within finance, spending time in the following roles and areas of our business:

  • Transaction processing (accounts payable, accounts receivable, takings reconciliation)
  • Core accounting
  • Tax
  • Treasury
  • Finance business partners (including retail, distribution centre, ecommerce and BMD)
  • Financial planning and analysis

At the end of the programme you’ll have gained a comprehensive insight and understanding into the finance function and, by interacting with every area of the Group, the business as a whole.

Throughout the programme you’ll spend time in a number of locations including:

  • Our two support centres in Weymouth and Central London
  • Our distribution centre in Stoke on Trent
  • Our stores – a variety of locations in the UK (with the potential to travel abroad to our international stores)

While graduates will be based out of the Weymouth office they’re expected to travel to the locations outlined above as necessary.

We’re looking for graduates who:

  • Have a strong and keen interest in finance and an analytical mind-set.
  • Fantastic communication skills with the ability to tailor style to different audiences
  • Demonstrate fantastic leadership potential
  • Are highly motivated to learn and proactive about personal development
