HM Treasury sponsored profile
Joining HM Treasury is the ideal way to harness your talents and make a real contribution to the country and its population. On our graduate programme you’ll move directly into a Policy Adviser role and be part of a team at the heart of government that’s shaping the nation’s future.
From day one, you’ll have real responsibility and will develop your expertise in a specific area of economic or financial policy and projects. You could be focusing on anything from banking regulation to health spending, or how individuals are taxed.
Few graduate roles offer this kind of influence and exposure, or such a wide range of responsibilities. You can look forward to debating and shaping policy with other government departments, external organisations and individuals. From influencing policy ideas and writing briefings for ministers, to responding to written questions from MPs and members of the public, you’ll be at the centre of national decision making.
You don’t need a background in finance or economics. You don’t need a specific degree. We’re interested in your intellectual curiosity, your talent for grasping ideas quickly and your ability to understand complex information – and turn it into clear, credible advice.

What you need to know about HM Treasury
We’re the government’s economic and finance ministry, employing around 1,000 people across a number of different groups, mainly in policy roles. This makes the Treasury a relatively small government department, but we have a vast remit and truly far reaching influence. We maintain control over public spending, decide how money is raised from taxpayers, set the direction of the UK’s economic policy and work to achieve strong and sustainable economic growth.
In short, we help make the choices that shape the UK. This means we have a say in every part of every policy, across every government department.
