On Thursday 18th January S5/6 Accounting students welcomed Sarah Nailor and former pupil, Ross Bunting, of Morgan Stanley, a global financial services firm, to the school. Ross, former Finance Apprentice, and Sarah Nailor, Campus Recruiter, gave a very informative and interesting presentation on apprentice opportunities within the Finance division of Morgan Stanley. They spoke particularly about their Finance Apprenticeship Programme 2018, which gives apprentices the opportunity to study for an ACCA foundation qualification while working at a world-renowned firm.
Ross, has now completed the programme and is working as an Analyst at the firm, where he is now studying to become an ACCA qualified Accountant. He gave students a great insight into the practicalities and opportunities of working for a large global organisation; giving examples of the types of work he did during his apprenticeship, whilst balancing studying for his exams.
