About the Investec Return to Work Programme

For those that are new to the Investment Management industry, on offer is an opportunity to train as an Investment Manager achieving the Investment Advice Diploma (Level 4) within the 9 month placement.  For those returners with previous Investment Management experience, an initial six month placement is available. 

All roles are with a view to permanent employment at the end of the placement and there will be opportunities to gain further qualifications, access a client database and grow your own client business.

When you join Investec, you’ll be placed within a business area which closely matches your skills and ambitions. You’ll have a buddy from day one and an Investec mentor, as well as group coaching provided by our partner, Women Returners.

You will receive a competitive package of pay and benefits including a ten per cent contributory pension scheme with 10% employer contribution, life assurance, income protection, private healthcare and a range of wellbeing options including a wellbeing subsidy, employee assistance programme and access to physiotherapy and psychologist services.
While these roles are full-time during the initial placement, please speak to them about any flexible working options you may require.
