About Henderson Global Investors

Henderson Global Investors is a leading independent global asset management firm. The company provides its institutional, retail and high net-worth clients’ access to skilled investment professionals representing a broad range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income and alternative equity. With its principal place of business in London, Henderson is one of Europe’s largest investment managers, with £103.1 bn assets under management (as at 31 March 2017) and employs around 1,000 people worldwide.

Trainee Programme

Henderson Global Investors is now running its next intake of the Trainee Programme under the Investment 2020 initiative; a scheme put together to create more entry level opportunities in the investment management industry. The Henderson Trainee Programme is looking for school leavers, recent graduates and those looking for a career change to join the business on a short term basis for up to 12 months. As a Trainee you would be placed in one of our teams for the duration of your contract which enables you to appreciate and understand the team’s function in detail. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop skills from a mixture of both ‘on the job’ and formal training. You will gain a firsthand insight into Asset Management whilst contributing to the success of the Company. This will be a paid experience, which could either help make future career choices or give the necessary experience for those embarking on their chosen career. For those Trainees who excel it may lead to a permanent role within Henderson.

The Success Story so far

Launched in July 2010, to date we have recruited 212 Trainees over 17 intakes. Over 90% of Trainees from completed Programmes have gone on to secure permanent roles within the industry.

Whilst exceptional academic qualifications are always desirable, we are really looking for individuals who demonstrate a strong desire to learn and embrace a fast paced and dynamic environment. They must be driven to succeed and able to communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing, in a professional environment. We are looking for individuals who genuinely want to make the most of their time in a leading Financial Services Company and have a resourceful and ‘can do’ attitude.
