Close Brothers is a leading UK merchant banking group providing lending, deposit taking, wealth management services and securities trading. A FTSE250 company, we employ over 3,000 people, principally in the UK, and are listed on the London Stock Exchange. The programme is a structured yet tailored-made, two year rotational scheme with placements in two business areas within our Banking division.
ASPIRE trainees join various teams and departments; progressing quickly to work on the front line handling customer queries and gaining experience with successful sales teams. Learning is very much on the job with supportive teams and mentors. We also provide full sponsorship for the chartered associateship in banking with the London Institute of Banking & Finance.
