Investment Insight Experience

Are you interested in a career in investment management?  We are running a two day insight experience during October half term, in partnership with Investment 2020, for Career Ready students who return to school/college in September as second years.

You will spend one day each in two different investment management firms (based in the City of London), where you will get VIP access to a range of people working in the sector and an opportunity to find out about one year traineeships for sixth form leavers.  This is a unique chance to develop your professional network and position yourself for future opportunities.

Day one at Hendersons Global Investors, 201 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 3AE 

Tuesday 27 October, 09:30 - 15:30
Students will get an overview of the investment sector and will hear about career opportunities from Hendersons, M&G Investments, Schroders, and Legal and General Investment Managements, among others, and will spend time networking with trainees from Hendersons. You will be allocated a group and will work on a team challenge to give you a real understanding of the industry.    

Day two at M&G Investments, Governors House, Laurence Pountney Hill, London EC4R 0HH

Wednesday 28 October, 09:30 - 15:30
Along with networking with trainees from M&G, students will attend expert masterclasses in ethics in investment management, professional presentation skills and will present back the results of their team challenge.  You will also learn about the professional qualifications that are needed to work in the investments sector. 

To apply for the experience you must complete the application form and email it to jenny.barber@careerready.org.uk by Monday 12 October 2015. There are only 50 places available and if there are a large number of applications, telephone interviews may take place.
