Jersey Finance are hosting an induction day today, on Thursday 7 March 2013 for the 14 delegates attending the Advance Plus advanced administration scheme.
Delegates will be given an introduction to the finance industry, a chance to tune-up their CV for prospective employers and visits to Jersey Finance member firms.
Advance Plus Manager Digby Ellis-Brecknell said the day was an excellent chance for delegates to meet employers and get an inside view of the finance industry. “We are grateful to Jersey Finance for putting this induction together for us. It provides an invaluable insight into the industry and the expectations and requirements of employers in the finance sector.”
Over the next two weeks, Jersey Finance will also be hosting a meet and greet lunch for delegates to meet employers in an informal setting and mock interviews to help them prepare for future job opportunities.
The Communications Manager at Jersey Finance, Carla Harris, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Advance Plus and Back to Work and designed the induction day in partnership with four of our member firms, Bracken Rothwell Limited, TMF Group, HSBC and DCG Corporate Services, who will be hosting candidates as they take a ‘city tour’ of the finance industry.”
