BAE Systems: Finance Leader Development Programme
Do you want to work in a finance role with a difference….. How about looking out of your office window and watching our Hawk and Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft take off ….. Or walking past our Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier on you way to work every morning….. What about being fast tracked into a leadership role working on one of our billion pound contracts with U.K or international governments….. If this appeals then the Finance Leader Development Programme at BAE Systems is for you.
By joining BAE Systems you’ll become part of a global defence and security company with approximately 95,000 employees worldwide and sales of £19.2bn in 2011. We deliver a full range of products and services for air, land and naval forces, as well as advanced electronics, security, information technology solutions and support services. At BAE Systems our mission is to develop the next generation of technologies and build on our longstanding reputation for innovation.
Finance Leader Development Programme (FLDP):
BAE Systems’ FLDP is a 5-year fast-track graduate scheme, which seeks to prepare individuals to become Finance Directors of the future within our organisation, through an accelerated programme of training and practical experience. The programme includes a structured and fully supported route to the highly respected Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification. It will also equip you with all the leadership and management skills necessary to become one of the finance function's senior leaders.
If you join us, you can expect a finance role that offers significant responsibility from the outset. In the first three years, you will undertake three 12-month placements across the company in the UK, gaining experience of financial accounting, financial reporting, management accounting and project accounting. After achieving your CIMA qualification, the FLDP scheme continues with a two-year senior accountancy position, including a minimum of 20 days’ training and development. This will equip you to launch yourself into a leadership role at the end of the scheme. Our CIMA pass rate is consistently over 90 per cent, seven of our FLDP graduates have been CIMA prize-winners in the last few years and most of the FLDP scheme members are promoted to executive finance positions within four to five years of joining.
We are looking to recruit 10 high-potential graduates to join the scheme in August 2013.
We offer: Starting salary £28k, £2k Graduate Welcome Payment, full CIMA study package (we are a CIMA Training Quality Partner) and excellent benefits.
Our requirements: 280 UCAS points (or equivalent) and a 2:1 degree in any discipline. UK Geographical mobility is essential while on the FLDP scheme.
