Careers at Downing

Here at Downing, we like to work with talented people who aren't just looking for a job but who want to shape their future and have a positive impact on those around them.

We look out and endeavour to do the best we can for each other and our investment community, and we look for like-minded people to help us deliver our vision.

We put our staff at the heart of everything we do and we want to attract, retain and motivate the right people with the right skills and the right attitude.
