Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP) is set to continue its graduate programme but has halved the size of its intake.
The group is looking for four graduates, compared to the eight it hired for the 2011 intake, to join its 2013 Trainee Investment Manager Graduate Programme, with the successful applicants due to start in September next year.
The training programme will last for two years, with one of the graduates in each of the four investment units - equities, fixed income, real estate and investment solutions.
Nikki Humphrey, HR director at SWIP, said: "Graduate recruitment is a key part of SWIP's overall strategy of attracting and developing the best talent in the market.
"We already have several colleagues who have progressed through our graduate programme up to a senior level and I am pleased we are able to continue the development of leading fund managers of the future."
