Continuous learning is an essential feature of life at Davy. We encourage and support our staff to pursue self-development opportunities through the acquisition of professional qualifications, knowledge sharing sessions, mentoring, formal training and active on-the-job coaching.

Each year you will be involved in the design of your personal development plan. This plan outlines your development goals and the time frame and resources needed to meet these goals. We will actively support study for approved professional qualifications and will provide financial assistance and study leave.


You will participate in a structured training programme, aimed at providing you with all the skills you will need to achieve your career goals and to excel in your role. The training that you receive will focus on improving your technical skills, business knowledge and soft skills, helping you to reach your full potential.

Further education and professional qualifications

At Davy we actively encourage employees, particularly our graduates, to pursue further education. You will be given the opportunity to undertake professional qualifications such as the Professional Certificate in Stockbroking and we will also encourage you to pursue additional qualifications such as Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Qualified Financial Advisor (QFA).


The support given to those on the Davy Graduate Programme is multifaceted. This includes the appointment of a ‘Buddy’, who is a previous participant in the Graduate Programme. The role of the Buddy is to assist your integration into the company. You will also be assigned a ‘Mentor’, a senior member of the business who will act as a ‘sounding board’ and a career guide. Our HR team is also on hand to assist and support you along the way.
