Corporate Graduate Scheme
Finance Graduate Scheme
What you'll do in your first role
The graduate scheme is designed to develop well rounded finance professionals. Our Graduates have the opportunity to learn finance skills ‘on job’ and also study ‘off job’ to gain their professional qualifications. Each Graduate is placed in a role within our Brand Finance team, taking responsibility for delivering key information, analysis and insight to the wider finance team and organisation. This gives Graduates a real breadth of experience and a rounded understanding of the Finance Function as well as allowing time to study and gain a CIMA qualification.
Your first big role will come in year three when Graduates move into a professional Finance role.
This role is office based at our Retail Support Centre in Birmingham.
What we'll offer
You’ll be joining one of the UK’s largest pub & restaurant companies. As a Corporate Graduate, you'll benefit from a great starting salary, private healthcare, life assurance, plus holiday, pension and Sharesave scheme, together with extra perks like 33% employee discount at our 1700 restaurants and pubs and High Street shopping discounts.
You'll have a Graduate buddy to call on who's already been through the programme so knows exactly how you'll be feeling as you embark on our exciting and challenging development programme.
Additionally, Finance Graduates are given the opportunity to study towards a professional qualification, expected to be completed within the 2/3 year scheme. Graduates will qualify as accountants with great experience from a number of different placements over the 3 years of the scheme. The CIMA qualification is promoted by Mitchells and Butlers with a range of learning options through BPP Professional Education.
My time as an M&B Finance Graduate gave me the opportunity to experience a great breadth of different roles that help drive the profitability of the company. From assisting others in their decision-making on different lines of the P&L, to leading small projects to improve company processes and performance, the M&B Finance Graduate Scheme provides the scale and scope for you to progress, alongside achieving a globally recognised accounting qualification.
Assistant Brand Analyst - this role got me to the heart of the action as not much goes on in a brand without the Finance Managers you work with influencing it!
