What Will I Get from the programme?
Our graduate programme is based on 3 pillars

Industry Deep Dives
What you have learnt so far has just skimmed the surface. We take you to the next level, ensuring that you understand the business we are in - Quantitative & Financial Modelling. You learn what they didn’t teach you in your textbooks: How the industry really works, and the in-depth knowledge & understanding required to make it in this specialist field.
Consultant Toolbox
We equip you with the tools you need to do your job properly. You become an expert with the practical experience to back it up.  Programming bootcamps, tech skills & a whole lot more – a toolbox full of relevant and vital skills that our clients expect you to have.
Personal Development
We are not just about hard skills. We need well-rounded individuals, so we help you be the best you that you can be: We provide you with the soft skills to better equip you for the scary world out there: Knowing yourself; financial savvy; personal development; how to communicate effectively. And a whole lot more.

But we also make
sure you get practical

Throughout the graduate programme, you will work on a relevant and complex project, solving a real problem for a real client. We call this your Action Learning Project, because we believe - no, we know -that there is no learning without action.

Health Warning: The graduate programme will take a LOT out of you. Unlike varsity, where you only have a few lectures a day, we will expect you to put in a hard day's work, day in and day out. But the reward is worth it – become a member of the Riskworx family – a nerdy but crazy bunch of mavericks who are the best in the business, but never stop having fun.
