We’re one of the fastest-growing global companies, employing 1500+ colleagues from 60+ nationalities.

Placement program overview

You'll work within our client service to deliver a suite of knowledge on-demand services that will help our clients make critical investment and business decisions. You’ll be the connection point between our clients and industry knowledge that is otherwise unavailable to them. 

In doing so, you’ll develop skills in sales & negotiation, project delivery, teamwork, relationship building, time management and professional communication. You’ll learn how to act within minutes and deliver within hours.

On placement with us, you’ll experience the same training and onboarding that our permanent hires do, going through our New Joiner Academy to equip you with all the learning and developmental resources that you’ll need to set yourself up for success from day one.

You’ll be paired with a mentor, have access to senior leaders within the business, rotate across different teams within our client service, and be tasked with a commercial deliverable for our Region Head and one of our co-founders in our London office.

You’ll experience the business like no other.

If successful on your placement, you’ll be invited back to join us on a permanent basis on our graduate program within our client service team beginning summertime 2025.
