Our graduate programme has been successfully placing graduates for 4 years now at Hastings Direct, and helped us to promote, support and celebrate some fantastic talent that has helped to grow and evolve our Finance department.
Each year we recruit a few talented graduates into positions that will rotate across our Finance department, affording our ambitious, bright graduates, the opportunity to really understand which path will suit them best at the end of the programme, whilst also offering a rounded and commercial view of how our department adds value.
We will support you with funding and time to gain your ACCA qualification, via a Level 7 Accountancy apprenticeship.
This is a three-year programme, where you will take on four challenging placements, each lasting nine months. The programme spans across the whole of Finance, supporting key accounting teams, and within these placements you will develop the core competencies expected of a leading finance professional.
We will also support and develop you to give you the skills to be one of our future Finance leaders.
By the end of the programme we would hope you secure a mid-level position within our function and become a mentor to future graduates, and importantly, make a significant contribution towards the value and performance of our department.
Hastings graduate scheme has been highly successful, and 1 in 7 of all our finance team are either current or former members of our graduate scheme.
We are very proud of our ability to provide long term progression to our alumni.
