Over the three year Graduate Programme you will have three rotations, one per year, which will provide you with the opportunity to work within specific business units across the Finance & Accounting Division.
By the end of the three year programme, you will have received a wide range of experience across various functions within Finance & Accounting including Group Treasury. This will include exposure to internal management reporting and external financial reporting (including interim and annual statutory accounts), pre-close statements, published accounts and investor briefings.
This programme will give you expertise in MI and data analytics – and comprehensive product knowledge in the areas of complex treasury and financial instruments, credit/market/liquidity risk, balance sheet management and capital requirements.
You will gain an understanding of how the financial reporting process works for a large publicly quoted company, together with an appreciation of the importance of internal control, with a key focus on SOX requirements.
You will receive considerable assistance to support you in attaining an accountancy qualification, which is a requirement for any applicant to the programme.

MSc in Economics and Financial Economics, University of Nottingham
I wanted to gain a good overall understanding of finance rather than working in one area. I believe the rotational aspect of the programme will allow me to make an informed choice about which specialist area I would like to work in at the end of the programme. The programme is for 3 years and Bank of Ireland has an accredited employer status with professional bodies which means that I will qualify as a Chartered Accountant at the end of the programme.
The closing date for applications is the 31st of October 2020.
