Investment banking virtual careers event for students with disabilities and long-term health conditions.

About our virtual event

Finding a graduate career is a big moment in your life.

You’ve got a lot of decisions to make. What do you want to do? Where do you want to do it? Will it make you happy? Does it pay enough to support your future plans?

But for students with a disability or a long-term health condition, it doesn’t end there. You’re also trying to work out which businesses will support you properly. Who’ll enable you to manage your condition in the workplace? Who’ll empower you to do your best work? Are there prejudices to overcome in the industry?

If you’re wondering about investment banking, we can help. This interactive, virtual event provides undergraduates with disabilities and long-term health conditions with direct connections to banking and finance opportunities. You’ll talk to knowledgeable employers. Meet successful bankers with disabilities. And you’ll get a sense for how to get ahead in a career that’s right for you.
