If an undergraduate to have been awarded a 2.1 or be on track to achieve a 2.1 classification.

 

3 A Levels (min UCAS points of 120)

 

GCSEs in Maths and English (minimum Grade B or 6 (new system).

 

Personal Attributes

 

We would like candidates to have the ability to communicate effectively with others (this is a small office, so we do expect willingness to become part of a team) together with a positive, helpful attitude together with a curious mind and a desire to learn.   A grasp of basic finance and commercial matters is desirable.   Candidates will be required to demonstrate their ability to work in the UK.   The training programme is challenging and for that reason we prefer candidates to live within a reasonable commuting distance as these roles are office based.  We firmly believe this is by far the best way for trainees to learn (external courses excepted).
