Apprenticeship Programme

The IFS Apprenticeships offer a two-year full-time job with a leading financial services company, such as SMBC Aviation Capital, whilst studying to achieve a Higher Certificate in International Financial Services or a Higher Diploma in Financial Services Analytics.

These apprentices attend the National College of Ireland for 1 day per week, and work within a team within our business for the remainder of the week. Each apprentice is assigned a mentor, a business, who will guide and support them during their on the job learning. 

For further details please see the NCI website here:

“Doing an apprenticeship with SMBC Aviation Capital coming straight from my leaving certificate, has opened many doors to a world of limitless possibilities. It has provided me with a platform to gain invaluable insights and experience in the field of aircraft leasing. This makes it an extraordinary experience with opportunities for a successful career in Financial Services and beyond, which is something I wouldn’t have if I were in college.”
