eFinancialCareers is proud to be working with and supporting the Sutton Trust
The Sutton Trust and eFinancialCareers are partnering to champion social mobility within the financial services and tech industry.
A message from our CEO, Pete Healey
I’m proud to announce eFinancialCareers’ new partnership with the Sutton Trust. Through working with the Trust, we have a chance to make a positive difference to the lives of young people who might otherwise not attend top universities and achieve career success in our sector, financial services.
Our partnership will include providing career advice, promoting jobs to the Trust’s alumni, participating in events, and arranging volunteering and mentoring opportunities for our staff. eFinancialCareers will also promote the wider case for social mobility as we highlight the Trust to our clients – including many of the world’s leading financial institutions – and to the millions of professionals who use our site.
We believe our partnership comes at an opportune time. Although the financial services sector has made good progress at entry level around both gender and ethnic diversity, socio-economic diversity poses huge challenges. The onset of the cost-of-living crisis and the continued effects of the pandemic have pushed many young people further away from strong educational and career opportunities, and into a deeper cycle of poverty.
The Sutton Trust is well positioned to tackle these growing challenges. By helping high-attaining students from lower income families, the Trust achieves some incredible results: its alumni are 4x more likely to attend university, and 93% of students go from the lowest to the highest socio-economic group post university.
Our aim is to partner with the Sutton Trust over the long term, and we’re incredibly excited at the impact this could have in helping social mobility in our industry. My team and I are very grateful to the Sutton Trust for giving us this opportunity.
