Vocational trainee programme

The programme

At Newton, we support our local community through our commitment to the development of talented London state school leavers, and we are highly mindful of the need to ensure fair and equal access to financial careers in the City of London. The Newton vocational trainee programme has been in place since 2012, and provides bright and determined A-level students the opportunity to work at a global investment management firm while continuing in higher education.

As well as providing a challenging and rewarding career opportunity, Newton funds a full business-related degree course at the European College of Business Management for those on the programme.

The benefits

The benefits of our programme are clear – trainees can begin building their career in the financial industry while still progressing academically and without the burden of college fees – and Newton can recruit competent young people who are motivated and hardworking, and whose age and educational backgrounds help to support diversity of thought in the firm.

Broad exposure

Our current trainees, and graduates of the programme, work in a wide variety of departments within Newton, including those supporting the investment process and the relationship management of clients, in marketing and business development, and in the operations and technology teams. Graduating trainees to date have attained at least a 2:1 BA Hons degree in Business Studies, with several achieving a first-class BA Hons degree, and are now progressing in their chosen career path within the firm.
