Manchester, Bristol, Leeds and Birmingham

It’s been a busy couple of months for our Schools and Colleges Programme. Since May we have covered 4 cities and met >300 students, both 1-1 and in group settings, to talk about career opportunities in the finance industry. Few highlights include interview training at Aston Manor Academy which was supported by Mondrian Alpha and attended by Peter PeacockJessica Cohen & Laurie Robathan, careers fairs in Leeds and Birmingham with David Nunes, CFA, CAIA of Lazard Asset Management and Laurie, and presentations to A Level business students at Joseph Chamberlain CollegeSalford City College Group and Loreto Sixth Form College. See below a photo of our table before a session in Leeds which includes our standard handout – a Nike vs adidas share price chart (“Why the Difference?”), which we find to be a simple but effective way of opening a wider discussion about the investment industry.
We’ve got a full schedule booked in for September and October and after that we will be scaling into Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool and Nottingham. Thanks as always to Marshall Wace and Cevian Capital as well as Mondrian Alpha for their support, and the industry advisors and candidates from the Core Programme who have helped out.
