Start with some of the best, join our graduate programme

At Monocle, we know that to be the best, we must have the best team behind us – a team made up of the brightest individuals who work together to deliver exceptional results.

 

Each year, Monocle welcomes a group of the finest analysts into our company, who complete an intensive in-house training programme at the start of their employment to prepare them for their new career within the company.

 

All candidates accepted into the Analyst Graduate Programme are guaranteed permanent employment, so we are looking for the perfect fit for the Monocle family and are committed to a long-term investment in the best talent available. What we do is unique, but we will ensure that you are prepared to take on the challenge through our comprehensive analyst programme, as well as ongoing mentorship from our top executives. On completion of your initial training, you will be elevated to the consulting team – and begin solving real-world banking and insurance challenges.

Over the years, Monocle has won many awards, but none have meant as much as being recognised as a ‘Top Employer’ by the international Top Employer Institute.

 

Having undergone a rigorous, multi-month audit process with Top Employer, this achievement reflects the success of Monocle’s people-centric business strategy. We wholeheartedly believe that if you provide the best possible work environment and people practices, you will attract and retain the top people in the industry and allow them to reach their full potential.

"It perfectly prepares you for the work environment. The ability to think critically, working under pressure and effective problem solving isn’t something one can learn from textbooks."

"The amount of time and effort spent on providing new graduates with expert training really prepares graduates for ‘the real world’ far greater than any university is able to."
