Investment Solutions Trainee Programme
Invesco is proud to be a part of the Investment 2020 initiative, and we are delighted to invite you to apply for a 12 month placement with us, starting on 20th September 2021. Our culture of collaboration and inclusion makes Invesco a phenomenal place to work and reflects the broad diversity of thought across our organisation. We offer entry level work experiences that will inspire and challenge you!
These are traineeships, so we are specifically looking for results-oriented graduates who are interested in a career in Investment Solutions. You’ll play an active role and contribute to the success of the function.
Here's a Bit about the Team
Invesco Investment Solutions (IIS), based in the UK, U.S., Europe, and Asia, is an independent, client-centric group of investment professionals with experience working across investment teams globally to develop goals-oriented, multi-asset strategies for clients.
Through advisory consultation, custom solutions and strategic partnerships, the team harnesses the right combination of strategies across Invesco’s full spectrum of active, passive, factor and alternative investments to meet the needs of organisations.
You’ll develop your knowledge around investment asset allocations, playing a key role in supporting the Investment and Advisory team with client portfolio analysis, which helps investors better understand their portfolio risks and trade-offs and assisting to identify potential solutions best aligned with their specific preferences and objectives. You could also be supporting the wider Investment Solutions team by assisting on key client projects (cashflow driven investments, alternative investments, pension investments).
We’ll give you training, but you’ll need a degree for this one, with a strong numerical focus (like Maths, Physics or Economics). You’ll also have a strong interest in Investments, a strong appetite to learn and the ability to work both independently and as part of a high-performing team.
How to Apply
Whilst a CV is important, we’d also like to get to know you as more than just a name on a piece of paper, which is why we’re asking you to address some questions that are important to us in a Word or PDF document:
- What interests you about a career in Investment Solutions?
- How do you think Investment Solutions contributes to our goal of delivering a superior experience for our clients?
- Tell us about a particularly challenging situation you’ve faced personally and what you’ve learnt from this
- Tell us what you’d like to achieve in your career and how this placement might help you get there
- What has your work experience and/or education taught you so far about yourself?
- Tell us about your proudest achievement
This is a great opportunity for you to shine and to help us better understand your motivations! Unfortunately, we will not be able to consider your application without this submission.
