There is common recognition that there is a growing skills gap. Also that the Industry needs to become more diverse. Improving Social Mobility and Diversity in the Capital Markets are important aims for ISITC Europe. The Student Society programme will help to address this issue. It is designed to be complementary in supporting existing projects for other likeminded organisations. However, like our community, it encompasses the whole of the Capital Markets ecosystem, rather than just one specific industry sector or type of firm. ISITC Europe Ambassadors can help facilitate engagement with the industry.
Being an Ambassador is a voluntary role. Volunteers can fit activities around their own schedules. Ambassadors have a choice of what and how many activities they undertake. Ambassadors will be asked to provide feedback and may provide suggestions on how the Student Programme can be improved through Quarterly meetings of the Ambassadors group or direct contact with the admin team.
We currently have links to schools, colleges and universities, in and around Greater London. Providing students with knowledge about, and access to the Capital Markets. However, if Ambassadors have links to other educational institutions, who they want to work with or are already working with, we would be delighted to add them to the Students Society.
It should be noted that it is our intention to extend the Student Society Program further to encompass other areas in the UK and Europe.
