Our Graduate Programme
You’ll join a two-year programme where you’ll be given the responsibility, autonomy and training you need to shine from day one.
Our programmes are designed to stretch you while providing the skills and experience you need to kickstart your career and contribute to Redington’s continuing success.
You can choose to apply for one of three areas:
Working collaboratively with your team, you’ll help to deliver investment advice to your clients that meet their objectives while remaining within their constraints. Your challenge is to translate complex concepts into succinct solutions.
Manager Research Team
Fund managers invest our clients’ money. It’ll be your job to make sure we pick the best ones. You’ll look at the universe of fund managers and analyse, interview and report which ones are best placed to deliver our clients’ goals.
Asset & Liability Management (ALM)
Love numbers? Here you’ll work out the best way to achieve each of our client’s objectives. With endless solutions, the choice is down to you. Using our in-house software and sophisticated analytics, you’ll help us build the best investment strategies for clients.
Who can apply?
To be considered for our Consulting and Fund Research graduate positions, you need to have completed an undergraduate degree.
We recruit from all degree disciplines. However, as our Asset & Liability Management function is highly quantitative, we prefer graduates to have studied a STEM subject at degree level.
Important dates to mark your calendar
Applications open: 1st September 2022 (applications are reviewed on a rolling basis so make sure to apply early)
Applications close: End of September
Assessment Centre: Assessment Centres to take place in October and November with hiring decisions made on the day.
How to apply
Our application process is split into three steps. As you progress through each stage, our team will be in touch to explain the next step.
Step 1 - Online application and psychometric testing
You’ll need to answer three questions – make sure you take some time to research Redington before submitting your answers. You’ll then be invited to complete a couple of psychometric tests (verbal and numerical test).
You can find more information about psychometric tests on our FAQ page.
Step 2 - Video interview
You’ll be asked some questions about our industry and business. We want to get to know you better and understand how you communicate.
If you’re applying for an ALM role, you’ll be asked some maths and statistic questions too.
Stage 3 - Assessment Centre
If you’re applying for our Investment Consulting or Manager Research roles, you’ll be invited to a half-day session to complete some group projects. For ALM roles, you’ll have a more focused interview looking at your quantitative skills and competencies.
Application Hints and Tips
We’re here to help
It’s ok if you’re either not sure which programme is right for you, or if you’re interested in more than one. Apply for the one that sounds most like you and let us know during the telephone interview stage if you’d also like to be considered for others, or would like assistance in choosing which option is best for you.
Give yourself plenty of time to write applications.
Good applications take time, research and concentration – so try not to leave it until the last minute! And find a place where you won’t be distracted when you’re working on them.
Practice, Practice, Practice
After completing our online application, you’ll be invited to complete a psychometric test. We would strongly advise that you take the time to practice. More information on psychometric testing can be found on our FAQ page.
Test your equipment.
Prior to your video interview, please make sure you’ve tested that your microphone and speakers work. Let our team know if you have any problems and don’t forget to check your Wifi connection too!

Our commitment to people and planet
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
For us, CSR isn’t a marketing exercise. It’s central to our mission. We founded RedSTART, a financial literacy charity that equips young people from across the UK with the skills they need to manage their financial futures.
We also have an internal charity committee (Redington Acorns) which sets out to leave the world a better place than we found it.
Inclusion and Diversity
For us, diversity isn’t about recruiting individuals from a minority represented group to meet a quota. It’s about building a team of genuinely diverse people, who come from different backgrounds and have different experiences and skills to bring to the table.
We believe it’s our job to create an inclusive environment that allows our team to thrive.
In 2022, we offset our emissions to become a net-zero business. This was the easy bit! We recognise that in order to make a real difference, we need to use our influence as an advisor to over £600bn assets as a force for good.
This is why we’ve committed to delivering investment advice that’s in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
