Trainee Business Development Manager

  • Permanent
  • London

Are you a recent Graduate looking to step into the world of the Financial Services? We are working on a unique and exclusive opportunity to do just that with an amazing business with offices in the heart of the City of London. Our client is LGT Wealth Management, a Wealth Manager specialising on managing various client portfolios, as well as providing bespoke investment analysis to clientele. A truly employee-led business that fosters diversity and inclusion in everything it does, LGT has had a consistent open-door policy and a flat management hierarchy within its operations, which means that community and innovation are placed front-and-centre of everything done at the Firm.

The business champions the growth and wellbeing of its employees, and its accreditation by Great Place to Work UK speaks to that point. And that good will extends outwards from the Firm as well, with the business being keen supporters of various initiatives: at the core of their Portfolio management, the business excludes supporting clients that fund controversial weapons or investment in thermal coal; by contrast, sustainable growth is put first in much of what the business does, including planting trees for each client that joins their paperless reporting efforts, supporting the development of electric alternatives for vehicles, and working with charities and enterprises across the country. Social responsibility is key to this firm’s culture; LGT has been carbon neutral since 2010 and is committed to becoming carbon net-zero by 2030.

What you’ll do

In this 2-year programme, you will have the opportunity to build additional business pipelines from within the intermediary market, growing your own core business development skills as part of LGT Wealth Management. After successful completion of the programme, you will be permanently joined up with one of our Business Development teams in line with your own ambitions.

Working alongside professionals and experts in the sector, you will attract new AUM (assets under management) to the business that align with LGT’s targets, as well as exploring how else to create new opportunities as the Financial Services market changes and develops. You will be trained into a true Business Professional in the Financial Services space, learning how to market LGT to various key targets in the sector; simultaneously, you will also grow your own regulatory knowledge of the FS market under the watchful eye of skilled experts in the business, learning how to mitigate risk to the business in everything you do.

As you continuously will be trained in this role, some of your day-to-day will come to include:

  • Contributing to LGT’s continued success by attracting AUM from the Intermediary sector
  • Researching as well as creating new opportunities for LGT
  • Marketing LGT to various IFAs and other intermediaries as required

This opportunity is open both to recent graduates looking for a fresh opportunity to work in the world of Financial Services, as well as those who already have experience in the workplace and are looking for something new for their career path. We are looking for individuals who are naturally curious, yet fast learners, able to grasp new opportunities as they spot them whilst still operating ethically and under the regulatory requirements a Financial Services business requires.

In summary, this is an opportunity to join a major Wealth Manager where you will gain experience to the industry and on-the-job work experience that will propel you forward in your career. Apply as soon as possible to find out more.
