Banking & Finance Professional Programme - 27th June, 25th July
NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more
How the Programme Works:
You'll start by completing our Banking & Finance psychometric profile, to get recommendations for careers that suit your profile and identify the area of finance where you have the highest chance of success.
Then you'll come to London (or watch online) for one intense day of professional training at the City Professional Workshop. We asked experienced City professionals to give you the benefit of their experience and insights and we interviewed some of the highest achievers in the sector (including executives and Directors with over 40 years experience in the banking and finance sector). All their experience and tips are condensed into this day, and makes a massive difference to the career success of the people who have attended (see the reviews). At the event, renowned speaker Simon Dixon (a former stock broker, trader, corporate financier and market maker) explains which career is right for you and how you can secure it.
After this inspirational day you'll be allocated a dedicated career consultant, who will guide you through the process of securing a career and be at the end of a phone call from now until the day you secure a job!
STAGE 1: Finance-Specific Psychometrics
Find out what your ideal role in the banking and finance sector is. The Benedix Psychometric test has been created by comparing your traits against those of people who are highly successful into specific roles within the City. Look past the stereotypes ("I'm good at numbers so I should be good at trading") and find out what you are really suited to. Confirm your initial ideas or get a second opinion that could send you in a new and exiting direction. Register now and you can get complete the Psychometric Profile straight away.
STAGE 2. One full day of intensive training from finance professionals
On this fascinating and intensive full-day training workshop, a top trainer with wide first-hand experience in the financial sector will show you:
1. How to choose the job that you want to get.
2. How to secure that job
3. How to achieve and climb the corporate ladder in your first position
4. How to ensure you don't lose your job regardless of the wider economic climate
STAGE 3. Post-workshop consultation and follow-up action plan

Professional Qualifications - which should you do?
Your careers consultant will be able to advise you on which qualifications you require for your career path and how to go about getting those qualifications. An appropriate qualification is a clear sign that you want the job, whereas an inappropriate qualification simply shows that you haven't done your research into the financial sector, so this is invaluable advice and expertise.
