Avon Protection’s Finance Graduate Traineeship is a 3-year structured programme that is designed to provide the successful applicant with a comprehensive range of financial experience whilst supporting the individual through their professional exams. Over the course of 3 years, the Finance Graduate will have the opportunity to:
- Work across the different Finance teams, learning how financial data is captured and processed
- Learn how financial performance and key metrics are analysed internally in order to support the Company’s decision-making process

In order to obtain this wide range of financial experience, the graduate will rotate across different finance teams including the local finance team (responsible for financial processing of local based trading entity), the FP&A team (financial planning & analysis) and the Group controlling team (reporting & controlling). Alongside the practical experience of working within the Finance Team, the Graduate will have the opportunity to qualify for a professional accounting qualification (ACA/ACCA/CIMA).
