Henderson’s 2017 Graduate Programme is a two year training programme with opportunities in Investment Management and Global Distribution.

Unlike a traditional Graduate Programme you will be placed within one of our teams for the majority of the training programme. This enables you to gain deeper knowledge and a better understanding of the team you are working in.

The Programme is designed to provide you with:

  • varied hands on experience whilst working alongside fund managers, analysts, sales directors and other professionals in a dynamic and engaging environment
  • on the job and formalised training covering both soft and technical skills
  • relevant professional qualifications, including IMC and CFA.

Application Process

Online Application

  • The online application form will ask you to provide personal details and additional information such as your academic history and work experience.
  • You will also be required to answer a number of competency based questions.

Online Testing

  • There are two online assessments; numerical and verbal reasoning.
  • Each test is carried out sequentially and therefore each test will need to be completed and passed, at the time of sitting, in order to carry onto the next.

Video Interviews

  • During the online interview, candidates will be asked to respond to pre-recorded competency-based questions.

Assessment Centres

  • A one-day assessment centre at Henderson's London office.
  • The day will be used to assess a range of skills and your suitability for the programme.

Final Selection

  • Six candidates will be selected for Henderson's 2017 Graduate Programme.

Each stage must be completed and passed before progressing to the next stage.
