Shape your future

Close Brothers’ Training Academy is an industry-leading ‘centre of excellence’ that recruits and develops exceptional talent to become our next generation of colleagues.

Our aim is for the Training Academy to be recognised across our industry for its quality – as we continue to grow we will demonstrate that by being the best we will continue to attract the highest calibre of people to our business.

The course

The first intake of 30 candidates, in September 2015, will be sales-focused, with successful candidates joining our Asset Finance business.  They will spend a total of two years undergoing classroom and field based training while also receiving mentoring from experienced Sales Managers.  This is to ensure we are providing them with the best possible grounding for a fulfilling career with Close Brothers.

For the candidates, this is an outstanding opportunity to join a team supporting SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises), who are the bedrock of the UK’s economy.  The Training Academy provides people with the opportunity not only to learn from the industry’s finest, but to make a real and significant difference to lives and livelihoods.

The application deadline for this year’s Training Academy has passed but details of future Academies will be made available on this page.
