Careers in Business, Banking and Finance Conference

Young Professionals would like to invite you to Scotland’s biggest in-person Business, Banking and Finance student careers conference of the year, taking place in Edinburgh.

On Tuesday 12th December from 5:00pm – 8:00pm we’re running our Careers in Business, Banking and Finance Conference at the Kimpton Hotel, Charlotte Square in central Edinburgh. We are bringing with us some of the UK and the world’s most prestigious employers.

On the Business side, we have global Accounting, Finance, and Professional Services giants Deloitte, KPMG, CIMA and Grant Thornton joining us to give talks on business and the future of finance and to share more information on their fantastic degree apprenticeship and work experience opportunities.

For those of you interested in Banking and Finance, we have the largest UK retail and commercial financial services provider, Bank of Scotland /  Lloyds Banking Group, joining us to give a presentation on careers in the ever-changing world of finance.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from and network with industry experts from not just one or two but several national and global organisations.

At the event, you will get to hear all about their summer work experience placements for students as well as the graduate and internship opportunities on offer. We will ultimately show you how to pass the recruitment process and get these opportunities to make your CV really stand out.

By attending this event, you will also get a certificate that you can use on your CV and any graduate/university applications you might be making over the winter break.

It’s a completely free event. All you need to do is sign up using the registration links below.
