Working in partnership with employers for PIFS24

The Forces Employment Charity are working in partnership with BNY Mellon (London) who are hosting this year’s event in June.

They will be welcoming up to 15 employers to PIF24 to be part of the spotlight discussion panels and to exhibit during the afternoon’s marketplace, giving you time to network with each. Many of whom will be veterans themselves and keen to offer tips and advice on how to approach and navigate applications to roles within the financial sector.

Living in Scotland or the north of England?

We are holding a regional employer marketplace and networking evening in Scotland where we are working in partnership with Barclays who will be hosting the event at their Glasgow campus.

Register to join in person where you will be able to explore roles available with up to 10 different employers from the financial sector. All of which have a presence in Scotland and/or northern England.
