Welcome to Operis!
As a graduate, you’ll be put through your paces right from the onset with some of the best training in the industry and mentored involvement in interesting projects. All this, within the comfort of a friendly and supportive work environment.
Operis TRG provides formal training for the graduate intake to a number of City-based Investment Banks. You too will benefit from attending these courses, with the valuable opportunity of additional one-to-one tuition.
Our training is not only a fantastic grounding in financial modelling but will also give you a great start in your career.
Working alongside a mentor, you will be immersed in real-life projects from the onset.
This real life experience will quickly help you to develop the necessary finance and business skills and will provide you with exposure to the latest computing techniques, offering you a broad base of experience and knowledge.
At Operis, you will be offered the opportunity to study for the CFA qualification at one of London’s business schools. Courses are usually held once a week in the evening during the academic year.
Here you will learn more about finance as well as networking with a wide range of individuals in both the City and industry. This will broaden your experience and increase your confidence and ability to operate at the highest level.
You will receive quarterly reviews to discuss your personal and professional development.
We will always offer you feedback and guidance to improve your performance as well as set you positive targets for the future months. These reviews help us and you achieve our goal to optimise your performance and skills through constructive advice, training and encouragement.
The company culture is something that I find most enjoyable at Operis, and what makes the company stand out from other firms in the finance community. There is a large focus on the growth and development of new hires in the firm which gives a great opportunity to learn modelling and audit skills.
Company-wide weekly update meetings provide information on various projects that are currently being undertaken. This allows for a holistic view of the company’s operations which keeps all employees informed and working towards the same goals. Beyond the office, Operis has team building events which provide a great way to meet the colleagues within the firm and expand your network.
Recently I have worked on Scotland’s M8 motorway improvement project, which involves the completion of the six mile “missing link” of the M8 motorway in North Lanarkshire, as well as upgrading of the Raith Interchange and key sections of the M8, M73 and M74 roads.
It was the first UK deal involving bond financing since the Financial Crisis in 2007, and is part of Scotland’s new Non-Profit Distribution program, an alternative to PFI which caps the profit the private sector can make by distributing any surplus profit back to the Scottish Government for reinvestment in other projects.
Operis offered an opportunity to pursue my interest in finance in a high-performing, yet relaxed environment.
One of the main appeals was that the company is one of the few that are highly specialised in project finance modelling. It allows graduates to gain a deep insight into projects in a broad range of different industry sectors very quickly – for example, I have worked on eight different projects, ranging from an international airport in Nunavut, Canada, to a mine in southern Mongolia in my first four months here.
Though as a recent graduate I was unfamiliar with project finance, I found project finance to be a more meaningful and rewarding sector than most other graduate job options. As an added bonus, I found my potential colleagues very friendly and outgoing.
