The drive, the passion for education and entrepreneurial spirit, all traits held in abundance by the VB Advisory founders, led to the launch of the Young Professionals Program in 2017.
Our influential Young Professionals Program focusses on graduates with a quantitative background and aims to create a new generation of quants within the financial sector. The Young Professionals Program provides the opportunity to gain necessary experience as a quantitative consultant in the financial sector whilst working for one of our well-established clients. We believe at VB Advisory in flexibility and entrepreneurship and therefore encourage the Young Professional to take a role in designing the program to suit their own needs and aspirations. The program is set up in such a way as to incorporate a full day per week where education or personal development are accommodated.
An average working week consists of 4 working days based at one of our clients under the supervision of both our client and your personal mentor. The program’s aim is for our Young Professional to gain hands-on experience and to develop their personal and business capabilities. Whereas the remaining weekday centres on education and personal growth. As a participant in this program you will follow our in-house educational program where VB Advisory offers the opportunity and room to study for your post graduate diplomas (e.g. FRM or CFA). We believe that by focussing on specific skills, one can make himself or herself indispensable to the financial sector.
Furthermore, as you are probably already now already aware of, VB Advisory actively participates in pro bono work and we offer you the chance to help create a better world by helping us by participating in one of our pro bono projects. So, in a nutshell, does a working week as described above arouse your curiosity? Does a pro bono project which could involve for example, helping kids with autism, finding optimal play-ground solutions for children with disabilities or helping start-ups with their data requirements grab your attention?
Now’s not the time for hesitation, contact us right away! Our long-term goal is to create a sustainable future. For both you, your career and the world around you!
