What you’ll be doing

You’ll carry out one 10 week placement as an assistant management accountant or an assistant financial accountant. You could be part of a team affecting critical decisions throughout our organisation. Working alongside some of the most respected finance professionals in the industry, you’ll experience a variety of financial disciplines including reporting and analysis, periodic accounting and planning.

Why you should choose this placement

A short-term placement offers a unique opportunity to experience many parts of the business and make a contribution from day one. The scheme is run by the Finance Strategy and Transformation team and our current graduates act as mentors to new recruits. There are only a small number of summer placements available which means, if you’re successful, you’ll be highly visible across the finance function.

Many students go on to make successful applications to the graduate scheme and now hold senior positions within the finance team.

Entry requirements

You must be in your penultimate year of university and be on course to achieve at least a 2:2. You do not have to be studying towards a finance related degree.
