Graduates

We take on around 160 Graduates a year from all over the world.

Who start out as Analysts – the majority in our Global Advisory team. After that, the sky's the limit.

Specifically, you'll be getting involved in day-to-day work such as creating content for pitch books, developing bespoke financial models, applying valuation techniques such as discounted cash flows and trading/transaction comps analysis, and coordinating the transaction process. All alongside senior colleagues who will mentor you to develop at a pace that suits you.

Purpose

The purpose of our Graduate programmes is to develop our leaders of tomorrow – and to give university leavers the kind of connections that will set them up for the rest of their careers. That starts with bringing together the entire Graduate intake in London before they join their new teams so they can build their networks even before they start.

Training and development

You will kick off your career with our six-week Global Graduate Training Programme alongside around 160 other Graduate starters from all over the world. Training in finance is a provided, and you will also learn skills such as communication, personal effectiveness, leading others and managing a team as you tackle tasks and group exercises. As your career progresses, your training will become more tailored to your personal development goals, with a mix of in-house and external courses, coaching and on-the-job learning experiences.

Our top tips

Polish your CV

Your CV tells us who you are before we have the chance to meet you. To make the best impression, keep formatting simple with clear fonts and bullet points to make the content easier to read.
