Event description

Description

The Finance Sector has been identified by the Essex Employment and Skills Board (ESB) as key to growth in the county - affording young people and working-aged adults alike numerous opportunities in years to come. The ESB's Finance Sector Group - made up of a mixture of companies, academic institutions and other representative bodies - would like to invite students (aged 15-19) from secondary schools and FE Colleges across Essex to come along to the University of Essex' fantastic Business School for a day of industry and academic-led workshops and presentations, highlighting careers and courses available in Essex in future years. We're delighted to be working with colleagues at Invest Essex, Colchester Borough Council and of course the University of Essex to deliver this event. And delighted too that UoE have allowed students access to the Bloomberg Trading environment and software on the day. We'll announce employer partners as we move closer to the day itself. Considering new guidance around ensuring students gain exposure to local employers, the Finance Insight Day will afford schools and their students exactly this.

The day starts at 9.30am and will finish at 2.30pm. Students are asked to bring along a packed lunch on the day, and there'll be lunch available for teaching staff accompanying their students.

THIS EVENT IS FOR STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN BOOKED ONTO THE DAY BY SCHOOL/COLLEGE STAFF INTENDING TO ATTEND ALONGSIDE THEM.

Please note that there'll also be a Finance Sector recruitment evening on the same day, between 5 and 7pm. This event is open to all-comers, and particularly those interested in jobs in the finance sector.
