Today, with more than 1,000 people based in Edinburgh, we are a leading independent global investment management business with over £180 billion under management. Our investors research a company’s potential to grow significantly in the next five to ten years, which is often influenced by many diverse and conflicting factors.

About the Role:

Join this two-year rotational Business Operations programme and experience the full cycle of over a dozen operational teams, which support our growing business.

Our programme is designed to allow you to work on real projects and develop new ideas in everything from Business Risk and Finance to Governance and Sustainability, Client Operations and much more.

And once you’ve built that foundation, launch your career here in a specialism that’s matched to your talents, interests and aspirations. Find your place in Baillie Gifford.

Requirements:

You might have studied business, or something else entirely. We’re looking for people who are fascinated by the way organisations work. In terms of your degree subject, we’re completely open-minded, although an interest in business is a must. We’re looking for people with a consultative and problem-solving approach, and a passion for learning.
