Butterfield widens the field in talent search
Butterfield is now accepting applications to its graduate talent programme through its website.
The programme is distinct from previous iterations in that it is open not only to university graduates but also to bright, talented and ambitious candidates who may have chosen a different path and have work experience in place of a bachelor’s degree.
The structured two-year programme, beginning in September, will see two successful applicants progress their careers in the financial services industry with full-time roles at Butterfield. The positions are competitively salaried with benefits.
During their time with Butterfield, the successful applicants will rotate and spend time in key business areas including banking, compliance and risk, asset management and trust, to gain practical experience and develop technical knowledge. They will also have an opportunity to embark upon an industry accredited qualification.
Each individual will work closely with experienced professionals and will be assigned a dedicated mentor to provide guidance together with a personal development plan to set them up for future success.
Andrew Burns, Butterfield’s group head of human resources, said the bank is delighted to open up exciting career opportunities in the financial services industry to a wider array of candidates.
“This programme is part of our ongoing commitment to develop the next generation of talented employees, building on our summer internship programme and undergraduate scholarships,” Mr Burns said. “We recognise that there are many routes to success and our selection for this programme is based on more than just academics alone.”
He said competence, motivation, leadership potential and an alignment with Butterfield’s core values is just as important, if not more so.
“At the end of the two years, our aim is for the successful applicants to grow into a permanent position within the business in an area that is a best fit for them,” Mr Burns said. “I encourage all eligible candidates to apply.”
Applicants should have a strong interest in the financial sector and a desire to learn.
The application deadline is July 31.
