The Investment Breakfast Briefing is being hosted by Brewin Dolphin, one of the UK’s leading investment management and financial planning firms. The event will include an update from staff working in the sector and Ian Hanson, Sector Skills Manager at SDS, on :
- An overview of investment and how it fits in the financial services sector;
- Roles and careers available;
- Qualifications and competencies required;
- Routes in to the sector including different levels of entry from graduate recruitment to the development of apprenticeships.
Future Asset works to improve diversity in asset management and the investment sector in Scotland. After our successful Future AS5ET Conference in 2017 we are extending our programme to include Investment Roadshows for S4-S6 girls, a national conference launching an exciting Investment Competition on 24 September 2019, and special events for teachers and careers advisers.
We are developing social media campaigns and classroom-based materials. We would love to involve teachers, careers advisers and girls in developing our programme and would love to hear from you if you’d like to help us.
