Why join us?
The purpose of our Trainee Programme is to enable individuals with limited or no exposure to financial services to start their careers and gain the skills and experience required to progress within the investment management industry.
As a trainee, you will join a dynamic and enriching environment, providing you with the grounding and experience to enable you to advance your career within the industry. You will receive ongoing training throughout your time at GAM and a variety of courses will be tailored specifically to provide you with useful business and life skills for your personal development. In addition to these courses, you will have the opportunity to study for a professional qualification and our in-house Learning and Development team will support you through this. Each trainee will be assigned a mentor within the team they join to work in partnership with, which will enable you to get the most out of your time at GAM. The social side of your time with GAM should not be forgotten. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a range of social and sports events we host.
GAM’s London office is based in the heart of the City. Our office at 8 Finsbury Circus is located less than a few minutes’ walk from both Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations.
We are committed to working in the most productive, collaborative, and client-focused way. We believe that working flexibly and giving our teams the responsibility to decide the optimal arrangements to suit the kind of work they do is the best approach. We will therefore not be mandating a firm wide approach and anticipate that there will be a combination of employees choosing to work remotely or in the office or a blend of the two.
If you are looking for a 12-month trainee programme within a leading global investment management firm and you are ambitious and driven, with a strong desire to learn, then this could be the opportunity you are looking for.
“I can say with confidence that my team have greatly aided my personal development and made this year as enjoyable as possible.” – Abdul Latif, Compliance
