Due to essential maintenance, our websites will be unavailable on Saturday 21st November, from 11:00am - 12:00pm.
Through REACH we support the progression of under-represented groups in the banking and finance industries. We invite you to join the conversation, listen to REACH champions working in the industry, hear their stories and how we can encourage change and diversity together.
Listen to a podcast from our last REACH event featuring Jagdeep Rai, the Regional Director at HSBC, discussing career progression and diversity in Financial Services.
This event is aimed at encouraging applications from female candidates and those from under-represented ethnic backgrounds, as both of these groups have typically had far fewer opportunities in the banking sector. The event will take place from 11am until 3pm on 26th June at our campus at Peninsular House, 36 Monument Street, London, EC3R 8LJ. An indicative timetable is below:
LIBF's Head of Careers and Employability will talk through what routes and types of roles are available in the industry, and how to choose a career and set yourself apart.
"I took a year out from working to go travelling, but now it’s time to get back into the working world. I actually graduated in Biochemistry but now I’m considering a career in banking and finance. I initially enrolled in the Diploma in Financial Advice at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, but I’m debating whether that is the correct step. So, I came to REACH to see what other pathways are available to me."
- Thurkka, REACH: Mature learners
"My favourite part was the industry panel - all of the speakers were so inspiring! Hearing from them made me feel confident about my choice to study banking because we actually found out what it's like to work and grow in the sector."
- Ayesha, REACH: Supporting ethnic diversity
"I always thought of bankers, especially senior ones, as older men! But, seeing so many women that are enjoying successful careers in the industry makes me more determined to study towards my own future in financial services."
- Katie, REACH: Empowering women
