Highly competitive salary + benefits
Whatever your background, if you’re a professional who’s great at building relationships, then you could become a Client Service Manager at Baillie Gifford. Our two-year development programme offers you the chance to transfer your existing skills while learning new ones. Financial services experience isn’t necessary, just a curiosity about the world around you and a real passion for learning new things.
Client Service at Baillie Gifford - building relationships
As a Client Service Manager, you’ll build strong relationships with our clients to get an in-depth understanding of their requirements, aiming to become a trusted long-term partner and adviser. At Baillie Gifford, we put the interests of our 695 clients ahead of our own. Clients as varied as pension schemes, charities, public funds and financial institutions. Established as an investment management partnership over 100 years ago, today we are a leading independent global business with over £180 billion under management and more than 1,000 staff based in Edinburgh.
The programme - a gateway to a new career

Throughout the two years you’ll receive on-going training, such as mock client meetings and practice pitches, as well as the opportunity to move between teams. Even though this is a training scheme, you’ll have a role and real responsibility from day one, helping us achieve our business goals while you continue to develop your career.
