Dealer Assistant - Fixed Income, FIIG Securities

It’s exciting to work with the team at FINSIA that has a real focus on developing new ways of building capability and professionalism within the banking sector. Having a passion to think differently and to focus on what developing people will mean in terms of better customer experience, will help restore trust and pride in the sector. That’s why I see such value in the collaboration between FINSIA and the Chartered Banker Institute to develop a suite of qualifications that will fit the aspirations of people strategies and also work to build up credits towards Chartered Banker status.
