Janus Henderson Investors Trainee in Denver, Colorado

Janus Henderson Global Investors is a leading independent global asset manager, dedicated to delivering the best outcomes for clients through a broad range of actively managed funds.

We provide our institutional, retail and high net-worth individuals with access to skilled investment professionals representing a broad range of asset classes including, equities, fixed income, multi asset and alternatives.

We are a team of independent thinkers who work tirelessly to help our clients achieve their goals – and we do it by fostering an energetic and collaborative culture that ensures our people love the place they work.

Headquartered in London, Janus Henderson is a truly global asset manager with a diverse geographic footprint, managing assets from 27 offices globally and employing more than 2,000 staff.

Overview of the Role

The Janus Henderson Trainee Program is aimed at recent graduates, school leavers and those looking for a career change to join the business on a short-term basis of up to 12 months. Unlike a traditional rotational Graduate Program, Trainees are placed in one of our teams for the duration of their contract which enables them to appreciate and understand the team’s function in detail. It is a fantastic opportunity to develop skills from a mixture of both ‘on the job’ and formal training.

Trainees gain a first-hand insight into Asset Management whilst contributing to the success of the Company. The Program is a paid experience, which could either help individuals make future career choices or give the necessary experience for those embarking on their chosen career. For those Trainees who excel it may lead to a permanent role within Janus Henderson.

Whilst exceptional academic qualifications are always desirable, we look for individuals who demonstrate a strong desire to learn and embrace a fast paced and dynamic environment. They must be driven to succeed and able to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing in a professional environment. We are looking for individuals who genuinely want to make the most out of their time in a leading Financial Services Company and have a resourceful and ‘can do’ attitude.

The Success Story So Far:

Launched in July 2010, to date we have recruited 212 Trainees over 17 intakes. Over 90% of Trainees from completed Programs have gone on to secure permanent roles within the industry.
