The independent financial advisory firm, the deVere Group, has committed to taking on a minimum of 200 graduates from the 2013 intake of its pioneering global Graduate Programme.
The organisation reveals that since the initiative was launched a month ago, it has received more than 1,500 CVs from graduates wanting to participate in the scheme which aims to bring the highly-skilled wealth management professionals of tomorrow into the marketplace.
deVere Group chief executive, Nigel Green, comments:
“Not only have we been thrilled by the overall response to our new, flagship Graduate Programme, we’ve also been very impressed by the calibre of the applications.
From those graduates who enrol this year, we will take on at least 200 full-time once they have successfully completed the course.
We envisage that most of these newly qualified financial advisers will be based within our operations in Abu Dhabi, Bangkok, Cape Town, Dubai, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur, London or New York, due to increasing demand for our services and specialist advice in these areas.”
The deVere Group Graduate Programme, which begins with a substantial foundation period at the firm’s administrative facility in Malta before the course continues in one of the company’s international training academies, is a two year course combining top-level industry examinations, one-on-one coaching and mentoring from established financial consultants, and hands-on experience working alongside successful advisers and their high-net-worth clients.
Mr Green adds:
“CVs are still being accepted for our Graduate Programme, which offers motivated, successful graduates a ‘career fast-track’ in the highly-valued, rewarding, and increasingly globalised financial services industry.
As a responsible, market-leading organisation, we feel compelled to invest in the future of the industry by recruiting the next generation of world-class wealth management professionals – and the Graduate Programme clearly demonstrates how we are fulfilling this obligation.”
