Success comes from thinking differently, recruiting and retaining the best people.
This year, following feedback from employees, we launched LinkedIn Learning, a new e-learning resource for all employees with a digital library of more than 6,000 courses covering a wide range of technical, business, software and creative topics.
We are delighted to be part of the Investment2020 initiative. The purpose of our UK trainee programme is to enable individuals with limited or no exposure to financial services to start their careers and gain the skills and experience required to progress within the investment management industry.
When we signed up to the 100BlackInterns programme in 2020, its goal was to offer 100 internships to black students across the UK to help kick-start their career in investment management. With only 12 black portfolio managers who currently run money in the UK, it sought to tackle the poor representation of black people in investment roles in the industry. The founders received an overwhelming response to the initiative with 200 firms making an amazing 450 offers. As a result, the programme has expanded and rebranded, with the new objective to offer 10,000 internships over five years across 24 different sectors involving more than 700 companies. At GAM, we are proud to support this programme.
GAM is offering a professional and practice-oriented vocational apprenticeship in the "Service & Administration" sector, with an intensive focus on the world of finance. During your apprenticeship, you will gain experience across departments, within a friendly environment where our employees are eager to pass on their expertise. We are excited to be able to invest time and energy into your personal development and training.
