NORTH WEST OFFICE
My name is Keith Toland and I am an Associate at FinTrU. I joined FinTrU in January 2020 and currently manage a team on a KYC project.
Prior to FinTrU, I spent several years with Citibank in an Operations role whilst living in Belfast. Initially I began in a Client Asset role where I spent the next year and a half building my knowledge and experience.
From there, I opted for a move internally to further strengthen the knowledge I had acquired and availed of a role within the funding team. I spent just over a year with the team before making the move to FinTrU.
How has FinTrU supported you during your career development?
FinTrU has given me the opportunity to people manage, something I was eager achieve in order to progress my career. They have provided me with tailored training and fantastic support at a more senior level. They have also provided me with the platform to learn and develop my own skills to become a more well rounded manager. FinTrU also believes in empowering their people and continuously encourage their staff to avail of external and internal training and professional qualifications.
Why would you recommend a career at FinTrU?
FinTrU is an employee based company who believe in promoting the wellbeing of staff and an ethos that makes them unique to anyone in the sector. FinTrU has a fantastic internal set up and many initiatives to aid their employee network, with the goal to promote building those relationships internally. The job is challenging yet rewarding but the company's principals and values are fundamental to its success. The ethos FinTrU promotes makes them stand out amongst their competitors.
What does it mean to you to be able to work with FinTrU in the North West?
FinTrU is the only company working with Investment Banks currently based within the North West and has provided people from the area with the opportunity to relocate back home for the very first time. It has offered the opportunity for many of us from the North West to embark on a career path where you gain job satisfaction, a good wage and the chance to work for a company who empower their people and promote physical / mental wellbeing.
What advice would you give to someone who is planning on a career with FinTrU?
There has never been a better time to join a company that can offer job satisfaction and actively encourage mental and physical wellbeing. From a personal perspective, I have never regretted my decision to join FinTrU and I feel somewhat loyal to the company due to the ethos they promote and the way their treat and nurture their staff and their development.
