This seventh Assured Skills Academy will offer a further 20 graduates the opportunity to launch a career in the growing financial services industry. Applicants will undertake an intensive six week training programme delivered by Belfast Met and Ulster University. The training will have a strong focus on investment opportunities and financial compliance. On completion of the course the graduates will be interviewed for a position with FinTrU offering a starting salary of £18,000.

Previous experience is not required but applicants must possess a 2:2 degree in any discipline. For the duration of the programme participants will be paid £150 training allowance per week plus travel expenses.

Applicants should apply online at the Mindmill website.  Deadline for applications is this Friday 7 July.
