Why join us

We are delighted to be part of the Investment2020 initiative and to be offering the opportunity for individuals to join GAM.

The purpose of our 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.

GAM’s London office is based in the heart of the City. Our office at 8 Finsbury Circus is located less than a few minutes’ walk from both Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations.

We are committed to working in the most productive, collaborative, and client-focused way. We believe that working flexibly and giving our teams the responsibility to decide the optimal arrangements to suit the kind of work they do is the best approach. We will therefore not be mandating a firm wide approach and anticipate that there will be a combination of employees choosing to work remotely or in the office or a blend of the two.

If you are looking for a 12-month trainee programme within a leading global investment management firm and you are ambitious and driven, with a strong desire to learn, then this could be the opportunity you are looking for.

Day in the life


Month end is a critical period in Finance, there are various important tasks that I need to complete before we finalise the monthly financial accounts including posting month end expenses and carrying out analysis of cost areas such as data services and IT.



Life on the GAM trading desk is never dull, and no two days are ever the same. As a recently created business unit, we are responsible for all trading across the GAM group, covering a broad range of asset classes and products.



The Global Consultant Relations team is the firm’s primary contact with the biggest global investment advisory firms. The team’s main focus is to ensure GAM’s strategies are referenced by the global consultant community, working closely with regional sales teams.



The role of Compliance teams within financial services has grown in prominence in recent years as firms look to strengthen their control frameworks and decode the implications of regulatory change.


Rewards & Benefits

The programme at GAM will be for a fixed term of 12 months. We offer trainees a competitive package with learning & development opportunities throughout the year.

As a Trainee you will also have the opportunity to study for a relevant professional qualification , which our in-house Learning and Development team will help you select and support you through.

GAM offers a comprehensive range of benefits to suit a variety of lifestyles and to promote well-being in and out of the workplace.

Whilst a permanent position at the end of the programme is not guaranteed, the programme will equip you with invaluable skills and hands-on experience that will put you one step ahead in securing a permanent role either at GAM or elsewhere within the industry.

I’ve always been a confident person, but GAM has helped me to embrace that - you're allowed to be yourself here
