Graduate opportunities

A graduate role at HM Treasury puts you at the centre of policy formulation in government. And because we’re at the centre, you’ll find a place to revel in your responsibility and the contribution you can make to shaping the nation’s future.

Your time with us begins with a structured induction and 18 months in a Policy Adviser role that features real responsibilities from day 1 in the job. After that, we expect you to move around, learn more and gain even more experiences. Looking to the longer term, your time at the Treasury will open up a wealth of career paths, in or outside the Civil Service.

More information on how to apply can be found on the Treasury graduate recruitment website.

HM Treasury Alumni Group

The HM Treasury Alumni Group network is available on LinkedIn.

Working from within the Permanent Secretary’s office, we post Treasury news items or events for staff who have moved on to other departments and organisations, or those who might be on a career break or maternity leave.

The group is designed for those working outside the Treasury who do not already have access to this information. Existing staff are very welcome to join, but they may already be receiving the information internally.

Here at the Treasury we are lucky enough to welcome some very interesting and prestigious guest speakers to the building and, as members of the Alumni Network, we hope to invite members to various events at 1 Horse Guards Road, including an Alumni Networking event.

If you are not on LinkedIn and would like to join our mailing list, please email your details to so we can ensure you are kept up-to-date on events and notifications.
