Are you looking for a graduate role that is technically challenging? Do you want a future that allows you to develop commercial acumen alongside your technical skills? Are you keen to have the opportunity to progress in a breadth of roles – technical or business? 

We’re looking for graduates who can answer “yes” to the above for our 2022 Accounting Graduate Scheme. If you’re successful, you’ll join Legal & General’s well-regarded accounting community, which plays a pivotal role in our continued success. 

Accounting is central to ensuring a profitable, well run insurance business and your work will support the success of a FTSE 100 company. Our Accounting teams work throughout the Group functions including Tax, Treasury, Financial Reporting, Risk Analytics and Expense and Ledger Management.   

Depending on what team you join you could be involved in:

  • Supporting the delivery of financial information, reporting and MI to other business areas. 
  • Accurate record keeping in the ledger and daily process records, and timely and accurate filing and storage. 
  • Preparation of the reporting and MI required for internal and external regulatory reporting, audit and compliance.
  • Build and maintain excellent working relationships and communications with other parts of the business to ensure delivery of effective processes and procedures.
  • Perform, under guidance, the tasks necessary to enable the continuous improvement of the team’s financial reporting systems and processes.
  • Support on finance projects.
  • Building MI to have insight to better serve our customers as well as identifying strengths/weaknesses in our business.

You’ll rotate annually over the three years into different business areas, developing your professional network and expanding on your quantitative and qualitative skills whilst you study towards a professional qualification.  

 

First and foremost, we’re looking for people with an inquisitive mind and a desire to learn. We’re not expecting prior industry experience, but we’ll want to see that you have the tools to develop quickly. These include: 

  • 2.1 degree in any subject 
  • Analytical mind-set, with a high level of numeracy 
  • Great communication skills 
  • Flexible and a team-player 
  • High levels of interest, dynamism and commitment 
  • Highly organised with the ability to prioritise effectively 

Please note, we can only accept 1 application per person across all of our graduate programs. Therefore, please think carefully about the program you intend to apply for. Your first application will be considered as your only application. 

Whatever your role, we reward ability, performance and attitude with a package that looks after all the things that are important to you. Our employees have a wide range of benefits including a generous pension scheme, life assurance, 25 days’ holiday, private medical insurance, discretionary performance related bonuses, paid overtime, a variety of share schemes, discounts at both a huge range of high street stores and our own great products. Your hard work will be rewarded when you join us.
