    Job Description:

    As a Barings Investment20/20 trainee, you will be part of the 2021 cohort of four placements across departments in the business following a 12 month programme.

    You will be getting involved in a range of tasks across your department so you really get a flavour of what it is your department does, and how they work with different teams to contribute to the overall success of the organisation. To help develop your understanding of how all our departments work together, during your placement you will be working with your group on a project to solve a business problem, which you will be presenting at the end of the programme.
