Belfast Academy XII complete first week at FinTrU


This week FinTrU’s Belfast Academy XII successfully completed their first week of employment. We welcomed the latest intake to our Belfast office after completing six weeks of mixed blended learning at Belfast Met and Ulster University.


Through FinTrU’s Financial Services Academy, successful graduates have the opportunity to gain an industry recognised qualification in the form of an Investment Operations Certificate (IOC). We wish all our new colleagues the very best of luck here at FinTrU.

It was a great opportunity to learn about the products that FinTrU offers as I did not have previous Financial Services experience. It was also a great way to meet new people who have now become my colleagues and I'm looking forward to my future at FinTrU.”
