E pā ana ki to hītori mahi – About your work history

We are open to a broad range of experience, and while some exposure within an Investments business in a middle or back office function  is well regarded, we also encourage applications from people in the early stages of their career and can demonstrate the attitude and aptitude to be successful in an integral Investments focussed support role, with genuine development opportunities across Back, Middle and Front office functions. 

This is an opportunity within the Guardians’ Investment Operations Team, where you will have exposure and add value across all trade support and trade lifecycle activity.
