Product Development 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. Our culture of collaboration and inclusion makes Invesco a great 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 and motivated graduates who are interested in a career in Product Development.
Have you always had an interest in Investments and want to understand a bit more about how we develop specific products which are relevant and compelling for our clients? We’ve got just the role for you to get some amazing experience, working within our high-performing Product Development Team.
You’ll be supporting the delivery of product initiatives that will shape the depth of our product range, which could include new products, enhancements to existing products and potentially liquidations. You could also be involved in structural reviews that will help with the strategic positioning of the product range, by identifying initiatives that will help keep us ahead of the competition!
Sound exciting? You’ll need some strong numeracy skills for this one, and some knowledge of economics, preferably obtained from your degree. A clear interest in the investment management industry and some experience with Excel as a data manipulation tool would also be useful. We’re looking for people with genuine intellectual curiosity, who can think critically and commercially, as well as being able to work both independently and as part of our diverse and successful team.
How to Apply
Whilst a CV is important, we’d like to get to know you as more than just a name on a piece of paper. In addition to your CV, we’d like you to address a few questions that are important to us in a Word or PDF document:
- What interests you about Investment Management, and specifically about product development within this context?
- How do you think Product Development contributes to the success of an Investment Management firm?
- Tell us about a particularly challenging situation you’ve faced personally and what you’ve learnt from this
- What would you like to achieve in your career and how can this placement help you get there?
- What has your work experience and/or education taught you so far about yourself?
- What is 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.
