At Sound Financial Management we are constantly striving to encourage interest within the financial services sector, especially when it comes to the future of our industry. Encouraging young enthusiastic talent into our industry is important to us and the city of Plymouth.
Our graduate scheme has provided a gateway for those leaving university wishing to develop a career within the research & advisory sectors.
The business administration apprenticeship scheme has also provided school leavers the opportunity to qualify and progress within our support teams. Our first apprentice completed their NVQ in 2010 and we have seen many of them flourish and progress their careers with us.
Jacques Hubbarde, a GCSE student from Hele’s Secondary School recently join us for his work experience. Jacques spent the week assisting our research team, developing an insight into our industry. Jacques’s ability to grasp many of the key aspects of the financial services industry was most impressive and we hope his experience will assist his business studies at school.
When questioned about his time with us, Jacques said “My placement has confirmed my future aspirations towards a career in the financial sector”.
We are pleased we have inspired him to consider the financial services industry as a career and wish him every success in the future.
