Rathbones Apprenticeship Scheme
The Rathbones Apprenticeship scheme began in 2013 and the continued success of the scheme has led to our intake doubling in size for 2017.
Our apprentices are given the opportunity to embark on an exciting career whilst being given the support and training to learn and gain relevant experience with one of the UKs leading Investment managers. Each apprentice undertakes a two year rotation that exposes them to many different facets of the business whilst completing an NVQ in Business Administration. They also have the opportunity to study towards a relevant professional qualification.
The scheme has attracted candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds who are committed to ongoing development within a workplace environment. Apprentices combine on-the-job experience and formal training to gain the knowledge and skills required to support our business operations, providing efficient administration, managing varied workloads and solving complex problems.
