Graduate scheme

The Graduate Finance Trainee scheme is part of the professional training framework for finance and is open to all ages. The scheme is usually a 4-year programme, combining formal studies for a professional qualification, with office-based placements.

Our graduate programme is a little different to the other local authorities. We give you the option of starting by studying for a financial modelling and data visualisation certificate before going on to CIPFA. This will give you a modern set of skills and set you apart from all other CIPFA graduate trainees, setting you up for faster career progression.

Graduates can choose to work at Enfield on the assessment centre day.

See Graduate Finance Trainee scheme for more information.
