Adam Laird: “The FinTrU Financial Services Academy is a fantastic way to kickstart your career in Finance. The Academy programme enables you to get to know your future colleagues whilst learning the skills you need to work within the Financial Sector. I now feel confident and prepared to start my role in the Legal team and look forward to my career at FinTrU."

Shanagh Henderson: “The FinTrU Financial Services Academy has been a great introduction to professional life with great support throughout. During the Academy, I had the opportunity to learn from professionals who are top in their field within Financial Services, all while creating friendships with my future colleagues.”

Conor Campbell: “The FinTrU Financial Services Academy was a great way to integrate into FinTrU. Starting at the same time as 19 other people really took away some of the nerves that I had prior to joining. The training provided was a great way to gain some knowledge and insight into what a working day in FinTrU really entailed.”
