Finance - Apprenticeship
Find out how Finance can change lives
This is a chance to develop in-depth knowledge of our financial systems, at a time when our industry is going through an incredible – and unparalleled – transformation. Here, you’ll get a unique insight into the way one of the UK’s biggest businesses functions, as well as how we adapt to rapid, large-scale changes.
What you'll be doing
As an Apprentice on our Finance scheme, you’ll be based at our main office in Coventry. Where you'll train for a nationally-recognised accounting qualification, as well as putting your knowledge into practice by working on live projects. Rotating regularly around different roles, you’ll also have the opportunity to learn about all of the things that make our business flow. That could include spending time in any one of the following departments:
Our Capital Accounting team works alongside Project Managers and Engineers in-the-field, helping them to manage and oversee the financing of all sorts of building projects, from underground pipes to water treatment works.
This department sits at the heart of our finance function, and accounts for all of the essential things a FTSE 100 business needs to run, like salaries, cash management, insurance and rates.
Financial Operations deal with accounts receivable and accounts payable or, to put it simply, all of the money we owe and all of the money we’re due.
Finance and Performance
Our Finance and Performance team help us to decide where to direct our spending next, for example, reinforcing flood defences in high-risk areas or preparing to comply with new regulatory standards.
The starting salary for this programme is £16,060.
How we'll support you
Training and Development
Your rotation placements will allow you to develop the skills and experience that you’ll require to become an expert here, either through working in operational teams or on technical projects. During this time, you’ll combine on-the-job learning with formal, nationally recognised development training modules at level 3 and then go onto the Level 4 AAT qualification.
To help you drive and own your career progression, we’ll provide you with Personal Development Plan. This will be set and agreed with your line manager and reviewed regularly to inform your quaterly performance reviews.
