Base Salary £35-40000 OTE £90-100,000 Benefits


East Midlands (Office Based)



If you're a business studies graduate, you may be wondering how to get your career moving with a reputable firm.


Let's face it, these early days of your career are crucial. You have the academic knowledge, but now you need to build up your professional experience.


So, you could join a business in an entry-level position and see if you can work your way up. But there's no guarantee you'll receive any decent training or if the progression opportunities are there.


Or you could join a business with a proven graduate training programme and a floodlit career pathway through their business.


That's what our client is offering.


They haven't become one of the UK's leading commercial finance brokers by accident. It's the result of a carefully planned design. They know that the key to growth is to bring in people with the right characteristics and then train, train, and train some more.


But this isn't just throwing a manual at you to read and then hoping for the best. Instead, their training is one-on-one mentoring with a Senior Sales Director or Executive Broker Manager, working on live jobs with real clients.


So what characteristics are they looking for?


Educationally, you'll need a minimum 2:1 classification in your degree, which could be in business studies or a humanities discipline. Maths and English skills are also crucial to your success in the role.


Let's be clear; this is a sales role, so you'll need all the characteristics of a sales executive. Confidence and charisma are important, but intelligence is vital as this isn't about selling from a catalogue. They use a consultative selling process where the key is to understand the client's business and tailor finance options to help them achieve their goals.


As for your personality, you'll be ambitious with the inner drive to become the best version of yourself possible. You may have considered careers in stock broking, trading, or sales, and you'll have a natural entrepreneurial flair.


Most importantly, you'll want to succeed. And our client will help you every step of the way. They set ambitious but achievable targets, and the financial rewards will come your way. For example, many of their previous graduate trainees have been able to afford their first home in the first three years of working there. So this is a genuine, tangible opportunity.
