Graduate recruitment

At Ruffer we look for curious and self–motivated graduates who have the aptitude and ambition to become one of our future partners.

Ruffer aims to be a vibrant place to work where ambitious people can excel and where everyone feels included, energised and purposeful.

Success at Ruffer is always a shared experience and progression is entirely based on merit. We offer both in–house and external training to help support this.

We offer two types of graduate roles: one is in the Front Office and the other is in Research.

Research graduate

This role is perfect for anyone who has an analytical and enquiring mind and who is either just starting out in their career or is looking for their first move post professional qualification. It is a rotational programme, which provides a unique opportunity to gain exposure to our research department.

It will involve training in both the macro and equity teams and you will be given early responsibility and the chance to contribute your views and challenge investment ideas.

To find out more, please read the full job description.

Applications for the 2018 research graduate programme are now closed. Information about future programmes will be available later in the year.

Front Office graduate

This role is perfect for an intelligent graduate who demonstrates maturity and resilience and who has a desire to build long–term relationships with clients, taking pride in ensuring each individual receives the highest level of client service.

As a graduate trainee you will be given early responsibility – including regular contact with clients – and your development will be actively supported. This is a rotational programme where you will start by learning the mechanics of the business with exposure to Research and Operations.

You will then move to Front Office as an Investment Associate, supporting, and reporting directly to, an Investment Manager or Director. The role includes all aspects of client and portfolio management.

Applications for the 2018 graduate programme are now closed. Applications for our 2019 programme will open in September 2018.
