I graduated in Maths with an Economics degree from Southampton University. As a result I had immediately started networking with banking and finance students/graduates and professionals. My reasons were clearly influenced by studying Economics as part of my maths degree which had lead to my genuine interest in the banking and finance sector.
As I’ve never worked in this sector, it was important to me to begin to research this sector further and pick up on the commercial understanding together with identifying my personality trait and latent skill sets which would suit this sector and my ideal role.
This had also lead me to get involved with a banking and finance training and consultancy firm whereby I had enrolled myself onto a Banking and Finance Professional Program in 2010 which was a 4 week course that was accredited by a professional body called CISI (Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments).
The course helped me to achieve my understanding for the sector on a commercial level together with helping me to identify my suited role – back and middle office
I am connected with banking and finance students and graduates all across the UK through investment societies, alumni and Banking profesional networking groups. I am also actively involved with economists and alternative finance professionals. I participate in events, seminars and workshops that are related to banking.
I am most suited to an entry level role, back and middle office function within a banking and finance firm who wish to employ me as a graduate or intern. My maths degree has given me the confidence to understanding complex mathematics and to be able to observe financial models, build sophisticated excel spreadsheets and have very strong and methodical analytical skills.
I believe I will make a suitable candidate to any organisation who is looking to employ a talented maths graduate.
