Accounting Graduate Scheme 2021
Your role at a glance
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 2021 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.
What you'll be doing
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.
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.
What we're looking for
First and foremost, we are 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
- An A-Level in Maths is essential but depending on what graduate scheme you are applying to, we require an A or B. We realise that some of you would like to apply for multiple roles so ask that you only submit one application to be reviewed against the different schemes.
- Analytical mind-set, with a high level of numeracy
- Great communication skills
- Flexible and a team-player
- High levels of energy, dynamism and commitment
- Highly organised with the ability to prioritise effectively
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.

And we're a company that wants to use our diversity and influence to make society better in the long term - for everyone.

That means we're committed to building an inclusive culture in L&G where we can all perform at our best, no matter who we are, what we do or where we do it. So whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever your story, we'd love to hear from you.
