WIBF's Commitment to Student Involvement

Women in Banking & Finance (WIBF) has announced the launch of its ambitious Student Engagement Strategy (SES). This initiative marks a pivotal step towards building a more inclusive and diverse future in the world of finance.

The SES is more than just a program; it's a commitment to nurturing the next generation of female financial professionals. Understanding the challenges faced by women in the sector, WIBF is dedicated to providing students with the necessary support and guidance to thrive in their careers.


A Unique Opportunity for Enthusiastic Volunteers

As part of this strategy, WIBF is calling for passionate individuals to join as SES Working Group Members. This is a fantastic opportunity for those who wish to make a tangible impact in the finance industry and be a part of a forward-thinking initiative. The roles are open for volunteers across various regions including Scotland, the North and North East, Midlands, and the South, including London.


The Role: A Blend of Innovation and Outreach

Selected volunteers will be instrumental in shaping the strategy. Their role involves event planning, student and university outreach, and contributing to the SES's monthly student newsletter. This is a chance to not only grow professionally but also to help mold the future of aspiring finance professionals.

Volunteers will act as ambassadors for WIBF, promoting the SES both internally and externally, and building relationships that will forge the future of women in finance.


Key Skills and Experience Sought

Ideal candidates are those with a flair for event management, strong communication skills, and an ability to build and maintain relationships. A commitment to teamwork and a results-oriented mindset are essential.

The roles are voluntary and require a commitment of at least four hours per week over a two-year term.
