We know that everyone’s different, which is why we take a different approach when recruiting graduates. Our application process doesn’t include online assessments or telephone interviews, only face-to-face meetings. Once you’re with us, you will join a culture that cares about you as an individual. You’ll work closely with senior employees and receive regular guidance from your line manager to ensure you reach your full potential.
And the support goes beyond your role; we’re also incredibly committed to the wellbeing of our employees. Groups such as the LGBT network, the mental health group, as well as clubs like touch rugby and yoga play a vital part in creating a culture that we’re proud of. Life at Baillie Gifford is about working hard, not working long hours. We want you to enjoy a healthy work/life balance as you progress in your career.
We believe in treating our employees well, and that includes financially. We offer an excellent starting salary that’s competitive with other investment management firms, plus a benefits package that includes an annual bonus, generous pension, life assurance, discounted private healthcare and 34 days’ holiday as standard.
There are many factors that contribute to our unique culture, but none more so than one – we’re an independent business. Baillie Gifford is wholly owned by the 44 partners who work within the firm. So the decision makers aren’t faceless CEOs, and you’ll be meeting some of them in the first week you join. It’s this that makes us different. We’re a business where people matter. Where you’re not just a number, you’re our investment.
