Language skills are not essential, but we are always keen to hear from applicants who are fluent in second languages.
At the end of the programme, you’ll have earned a permanent Client Manager role in one of the Client Service teams subject to completion of the requirements on the training programme.
Starting as a trainee, you’ll become a Client Manager with the opportunity to progress into a Director role over time. If you have the ambition and talent, you could even become a partner in the firm. Baillie Gifford is wholly owned by 57 partners who work in the firm on a daily basis.
We typically recruit three to six people to the programme each year.
Most Client Managers work from 9-5 Monday – Friday. However, we are open to requests for flexible working.
We consider applications from people who have been in their current careers for any length of time. More important are the right skills and an aptitude for the role.
Yes. Although we consider applicants from all disciplines, we typically expect a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent.

We will start reviewing applications after the role has closed. You will receive an automated response when you submit your application to confirm that we have received it.

We welcome applications for our roles from all suitably qualified candidates. If candidates do not currently have the right to work, we will support an application for sponsorship under the Skilled Worker regime. We can sponsor candidates on a visa for the majority of our roles, however, where a candidate does require sponsorship, they will need to meet the minimum requirements set by the government.
