Think outside the box

We value the diversity of thought, experiences and background that our Graduate Programme colleagues bring to Bank of Ireland. With that in mind, we seek applications from candidates studying any discipline. So if you are excited about this opportunity and have achieved, or are expected to achieve, a minimum 2:1 Honours Degree or Masters, then go ahead and apply. You could be exactly what we need!

Ways of Working

At Bank of Ireland we are changing.  We are committed to enabling our colleagues to thrive and offer agile ways of working to maximise choice and flexibility in how we work and live. Varying degrees of optionality apply depending on the role.

Inclusion & Diversity

At the heart of our purpose is our commitment to Inclusion & Diversity: To foster an inclusive working environment where all colleagues are enabled to reach their full potential. We are working to develop a more inclusive and diverse environment, supported by the development of our Employee Support Networks.

The Finance & Accounting Division is responsible for all Bank of Ireland Group financial and management reporting processes to ensure that all reporting is appropriately governed.

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.

Umer Farooq Naru

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.
