Create the ideas, concepts and solutions that will drive future development. Use your curiosity, imagination and individual thinking to explore new possibilities and opportunities. Welcome to Baillie Gifford – and a group of people who think like you. A team of just over 100 investors, based in Edinburgh, who shape the future of this leading global investment management firm. Join our Investment Management graduate programme and shape your future too.

We look to buy stakes in companies that have the potential to grow significantly over the long-term – and our track record has proved our ability to seek out and invest in businesses that change the way the world looks - like Amazon, Alphabet (Google), Tesla, Facebook, TripAdvisor, Alibaba and Ocado for example. In other words, we put a high value on innovative thinkers – and that’s as true of our colleagues just as much as the companies we work with.

Requirements:

This role’s about intellectual challenge:

You’ll be discussing your thoughts with some of the brightest minds in the industry and meeting business people who have the potential to change the world. So of course you have to be able to articulate those thoughts clearly as people will challenge your opinions.

We’re looking for the brightest minds from any academic background. In terms of your degree subject, we’re completely open-minded and we actively encourage applications from graduates with an Arts, Humanities or Science degree. Our training programme will provide you with all the technical skills you need to become an Investment Analyst.

What’s important is that you're keen to make an effective contribution from day one. After all, we’ll see you as a full member of our team from the moment you join us.
