Finance and Accounting Trainee - 12 months

Join our team

As one of the world’s leading asset managers, we are solely dedicated to delivering an investment experience that helps people get more out of life. Our passion for continually searching for ways to improve that experience is second to none and we’re looking for people to join us who thrive on that challenge.

Purpose Statement

Invesco is proud to be a part of the Investment 2020 initiative, and we are delighted to be able to offer a number of trainees a 12 month placement with us in Finance!

Working in an Investment Management firm is not all about managing funds. We have hardworking teams behind the scenes who are integral to the firm's success.

These are traineeships, so we are specifically looking for ambitious school leavers or graduates who are interested in a career in Finance and Accounting. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to play an active role and develop key skills which will stand you in good stead for securing a permanent position, either at Invesco or elsewhere in the asset management industry and beyond!

We foster a respectful, collegiate, and collaborative atmosphere, and diversity of thought is a core strength of our organization. Ensuring our teams have a broad range of experiences and backgrounds helps us promote the diversity needed to deliver an outstanding investment experience for clients and maintain a positive, engaging work environment for our people. Invesco EMEA is also proud to have signed up to the UK Government’s Women in Finance Charter.

This year’s intake will commence with us at the end of September 2020.

Key Responsibilities

  • Assist with the period-end close (with monthly journal preparation) and consolidation/regulatory reporting processes and perform top-level / consolidated financial statement analytic review

  • Assist with audits and action follow-up on corrective actions required from internal and external audits as required

Have the autonomy to make an impact

To be successful in this role you will:

  • Possess excellent numeracy skills, and possess a strong interest in accounting/financial analysis
  • Have strong customer / business partner service orientation, whilst being able to work collaboratively
  • Have an ability to work with and influence colleagues within and outside of the department, whilst working as a team player within a high-performing team
  • Be able to work collaboratively

The Good Stuff

We have an outstanding benefits package, which includes:

  • Competitive salary and bonus
  • Company-provided healthcare
  • 26 days’ annual leave + bank holidays
  • Generous pension provisions
  • Income protection
  • Health and wellness benefits

Our Commitment to the Community, the Environment and Responsible Investing
We partner with charitable organisations globally to make an impact in the communities where we live and work. Our people are encouraged to support the charities they feel most passionate about and are offered two days’ volunteering leave annually.

We are committed to adopting and implementing responsible investment principles and practices that uphold our fiduciary responsibility to our clients, as well as being good stewards of the environment.

Invesco is committed to environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. We serve our clients in this space as a trusted partner both on specific responsible investment product strategies as well as part of our commitment to deliver a superior investment experience.
