Programme

EmployAbility is delighted to partner with the Bloomberg to offer disabled students and graduates the opportunity to apply for their Graduate Programme 2018.

You’re the first of your friends to know about a major economic event. You have an appetite not only to see the world but to learn what makes it tick. You build relationships quickly and effortlessly and have a real desire for a career in a client-facing role. You're professional and personable, intelligent and analytical. You're a solution-provider, with a passion for providing platinum customer service.

Analytics

On the Analytics Help Desk, our clients always come first. We provide round-the-clock support for Bloomberg Terminal users all over the world and across multiple industries. We interact directly with clients via our 'Instant Bloomberg' chat system, answering their questions and conducting training.

We’re a calm voice in a busy, volatile market. Our clients rely on us to help them make better, faster decisions using the power of the Bloomberg Terminal. On any given day we respond to over 12,000 queries in more than 15 languages. The variety of the problems we solve is incredible. One moment, we could be working with a Portfolio Manager who’s worried about risk. We show her how to use the Risk Analytics platform to find the most volatile securities in her holdings. The next - we may be chatting to a trader who needs help understanding the liquidity profile of two potential investments. We teach him how to size them up against each other.

Sales

In Sales, we're the face of Bloomberg for our clients. Equally consultative and entrepreneurial, we’re relied upon to manage existing client relationships, whilst being given the responsibility and autonomy to identify new business opportunities throughout the EMEA region.

We make regular visits to our clients to support and train them, discovering new business leads by making prospecting calls and networking. We work in a fast-paced, rapidly changing market and to be successful, it’s crucial we stay one step ahead, preempting our clients’ needs and presenting them with ground breaking solutions, before they even know they need them.

Colleagues across the company depend on us to communicate new functionality and Bloomberg offerings to the market. We demonstrate how Bloomberg solutions will help our clients make the best investment/trading/business decisions, making their day to day business smoother and more profitable.

What’s in it for you?

It’s rare to find an opportunity that gives you such early exposure to clients. You’ll begin your career in the Analytics department, where you’ll be responsible for providing the best possible user experience for our Bloomberg Terminal clients. It’s here also where you’ll join a comprehensive training programme, covering all aspects of the financial markets - economic principles, market players and asset classes - while teaching you all there is to know about the functionality and analytical tools the Bloomberg Terminal has to offer.

We have training classes that start throughout the year so we can be flexible around your availability.

Once you have spent 18 to 24 months in Analytics, benefiting from the excellent training and daily Terminal and client exposure, you will be ready to progress to the next step - a move to our Sales department. You’ll join our team of experienced account and relationship managers, helping to grow our business and to service our existing client base across EMEA, focusing on a particular region or market sector.

You need to have:

  • The ability to join a training class beginning in 2018
  • Business fluency in English plus an additional European or Asian language (Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish or Turkish)
  • A Bachelor’s degree or relevant work experience
  • Demonstrated interest and the aspiration to work in the financial services industry
  • Strong critical-thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Exceptional communication skills (both written and verbal)
  • The aptitude to learn and adapt quickly in a rapidly changing environment
  • Real ambition to pursue a client-facing career, with a strong interest in relationship management and sales

We’d love to see:

  • Work experience in a client facing role
  • Interest in technology

EmployAbility Graduate Programme 2018 - Enforcement and Market Oversight at Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

Where: Greater London

Deadline: November 28, 2017

Type: Graduate

View more

Programme

EmployAbility is delighted to be working with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to offer disabled students and graduates the opportunity to apply for their Graduate Programme.

A career in Enforcement and Market Oversight is one that protects and enhances the integrity of the UK financial sector. By investigating and bringing enforcement action on behalf of the FCA, we make it clear that there are real consequences for those who do not meet our standards.

  • Enforcement: Where an investigation uncovers evidence of misconduct, enforcement action can include fines, bans and convictions. In 2014 alone, our fines totalled nearly £1.5 billion. It’s high-profile and significant work that often makes the front pages. But there’s more to Enforcement than punishing offending firms. We use a wide range of tools to drive cultural change and prevent crime, from education, disruption and intervention to our formal criminal, civil and regulatory powers.
  • Market Oversight: We are home to the UK Listing Authority, which regulates and maintains the list of the UK’s approved issuers of shares and bonds. They decide who is allowed to trade on the London Stock Exchange, review prospectuses, monitor market disclosures and deal with serious breaches. Recently, this has included investigating the LIBOR scandal. By supervising transaction reporting and cracking down on insider trading and price manipulation, we allow investors to have confidence in the integrity of the UK market.

What you’ll do

As a Graduate Forensic Investigator in Enforcement, you’ll investigate and tackle the most serious regulatory breaches and incidents in financial services. Market Oversight graduates will be involved in the full range of regulatory and operational activities. That could mean negotiating our local and international policy positions, reviewing initial public offering documents and carrying out supervisory visits. In both roles, the work you do will be varied, challenging and interesting, and you can expect to gain an understanding of our legal framework as you contribute to high-profile cases.

The structure

To give you the exposure you need to excel, our two-and-a-half year graduate programmes are made up of multiple rotations and an external secondment. You’ll spend your first two years experiencing different parts of the FCA and growing your networks. At the same time, you’ll be collaborating with teams across your division, honing your skills and technical knowledge and developing a real insight into financial services. You’ll round out your experience with a final placement in industry.

What you'll need

In Enforcement and Market Oversight, we look for graduates with an analytical mind who can build strong relationships with their colleagues. Confidence and decisiveness are crucial. You’ll be influential and persuasive in your approach and adept when it comes to figures and legal terminology.
