The Henderson Trainee Programme is looking for school leavers, recent graduates and those looking for a career change to join the business on a short term basis for up to 12 months. As a Trainee you would be placed in one of their teams for the duration of your contract which enables you to appreciate and understand the team’s function in detail. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop skills from a mixture of both ‘on the job’ and formal training.

This will be a paid experience, which could either help make future career choices or give the necessary experience for those embarking on their chosen career. For those Trainees who excel it may lead to a permanent role within Henderson.

Who are they looking for: School leavers, recent graduates and those looking for a career change to join the business on a short term basis for up to 12 months. Whilst exceptional academic qualifications are always desirable, they are really looking for individuals who demonstrate a strong desire to learn and embrace a fast paced and dynamic environment. They must be driven to succeed and able to communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing, in a professional environment. They are looking for individuals who genuinely want to make the most of their time in a leading Financial Services Company and have a resourceful and ‘can do’ attitude.
