Why be a graduate at LCP?
Are you ready for a career that challenges you, allows you to grow and work alongside some of the brightest minds in the industry?
We help our clients make good decisions, based on insightful analysis, industry expertise, and game-changing technology. Becoming one of our graduate trainees is the first step of your journey towards a successful career in financial consultancy.
At LCP our biggest strength is our people, so from day one you will be valued, actively involved and able to make your own contribution to meeting the needs of our clients.
The best thing about working for LCP is the variety of projects you’ll have the chance to get involved with from day one. For example, you could be helping with pension scheme valuations, monitoring investment manager performance or estimating the financial impact of a hurricane on an insurance company. You could be building a spreadsheet model, using innovative software developed in house, drafting letters to clients or writing reports. There are also plenty of opportunities for client contact, right from the start of your career.
We welcome graduates from a wide range of disciplines. We are looking for at least a 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent) and an A grade in A-level mathematics (or equivalent). Ideally, applicants would also have A-level grades in other subjects equating to a total of 320 UCAS points.
LCP has an excellent track record of students passing their professional exams and qualifying quickly; we also have an extensive programme of in-house training. After an introductory course, regular training sessions are held throughout the first three years, covering every aspect of the business. Staff also receive training to keep their technical knowledge up to date and to improve their managerial and presentation skills. We provide comprehensive support for the professional exams.
