Over the last decade, we have hired graduates from a variety of leading universities with progression through our graduate scheme to Chartered status and Director level in the firm.

The Role

The role is based in the company’s Cambridge office and involves working in both financial planning and investment management across advisory and discretionary services. Tasks will include drafting correspondence and reports, monitoring portfolios and meeting with clients (under supervision), and assisting with research into current and potential recommended investments.

At Cantab, graduates will be expected to make a real contribution to the business from the start.


Believing in the importance of professional development, Cantab will support trainees to take industry-recognised exams. All trainees will first take the Chartered Insurance Institute’s Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning (a QCF Level 4 qualification) and may then take further qualifications as appropriate. There will also be regular internal training.
