Your career

Learning and development

We invest heavily in a broad-ranging L&D programme to support your development and build the pipeline of talent for our future. We provide bespoke corporate governance and corporate finance training, developed with and delivered by the Institute of Directors and Fitch. We also offer a mentoring and reverse mentoring scheme, management and leadership programmes and seminar masterclasses on a range of technical, skills-based and behavioural topics for all staff.

Ensuring your development

We will do as much as we can to take your development needs and career aspirations into account when we assign work to you; we expect you to be flexible about the projects in which you are involved.

Our size limits opportunities for vertical progression for everybody – you will be supported to develop laterally and to find a promotion opportunity within UKGI or elsewhere if you feel the time is right to move on.

Networking opportunities

UKGI is a small organisation   with a flat structure. This means that your exposure to the UKGI leadership team, Board and senior Whitehall colleagues will be extensive. Undoubtedly, the network and experience gained at UKGI will be invaluable to your future career.
