Progeny recruits for advice summer school

Progeny is recruiting for a financial advice summer school aimed at giving those aged between 16 and 18 an insight into life working in financial services.

The five-day schedule involves interactive sessions with experts within Progeny's various departments involved in financial planning, to give the students a taste of the opportunities available within the profession.

It will also offer skill-based sessions to help prepare students for the world of work, including CV writing and interview skills workshops.

This is the second year Progeny has run this summer school after launching it last year.

Sarika Dhanjal, head of advice quality at Progeny, said: "Last year was our first experience of hosting a summer school and we had such positive feedback from our attendees.

"Financial services is not the most visible career option for students, especially young women, so we want to help change that and our programme is timed to coincide with when students are making a decision about their future direction."

Those aged between 16 and 18 and who are based in and around the Leeds area, who would like to attend the summer school to find out more about working within financial services, can access the application form here before July 1.
