Yesterday, Andrew Jackson, Managing Director of SaluteMyJob headed up to Newcastle to present at the Virgin Money Financial Services Insight Day. The aim of the event was to provide military veterans with an insight into career opportunities within the Financial Services sector.
The afternoon included a number of presentations by various organisations and discussions about what roles are best suited to service leavers. Part 1 of the event began with an introduction from hosts Dean Beaumont and Nick Calder from Virgin Money. We then heard some fascinating talks in the topic of 'Career Paths' from the likes of Deloitte, Barclays and Newcastle BS. Part 2 - 'Making the Opportunities' started with Gary Taylor, European Leaders, who spoke about 'How search and headhunters work', followed by Andrew's discussion and then Chris Lee, FDM talking about the successful Ex-Forces employment programme that FDM have built.
All in all it was an extremely valuable afternoon for veteran jobseekers and we would like to thank Virgin Money for hosting such an insightful event.
