For the second year we have been asked by Aldridge School to give a presentation to their Year 12, Lower Sixth students. The Financial Sector is extremely important to the UK economy and this year the school asked us to talk about careers in finance and banking, accountancy and financial services.
Our Business Development Manager, Simon Trevelyan and Financial Adviser, David Jones who provides financial advice local to Sutton Coldfield and across the Midlands region, were only too happy to help. Simon has worked in financial services for many years and David has previously worked at Lloyds Bank, he regularly works with accountants and has spent many years in financial services. They gave two half hour presentations and answered questions from the students.
Adele Stubbs, Head Of Year 12s at Aldridge School said “I just want to say a big thank you for assisting with our presentations. It was lovely to see you again and the students really appreciate the information you provided.”
David was impressed by the questions the students asked, saying “The Year 12s are a credit to the school.”
Following the presentations, David been asked to go back again to talk to the Core Maths students on Budgeting, Income Tax, Payslips including NI, pensions and student loans, controlling debt and mortgages. Vicky Hughes, Career Leader at Aldridge School said, “It is great to get someone in the financial services industry to speak about things that will impact all of our students’ futures.”
