Here at Consegna Recruitment, one of the realms we focus on is Financial Services.
Our specialists work hard to find the best talent in the Mortgage and Financial Planning industry across the UK and match them with equally fantastic career opportunities.
That’s why we are hosting a Webinar series to help people who are looking to access these opportunities in the Financial Services sector and need some help getting started.
Maybe you are looking to change your career and try out something new, or maybe you have just graduated from university or college and are looking to take your first steps into the world of work.
Whatever your reasons are for wanting to join the challenging and rewarding Financial Services sector, we are here to help. In these tough times, it is important to stay ahead of the competition and really make yourself stand out.
So, what are the webinars we are hosting?
There are so many different topics we could cover but we decided to start at the beginning and focus on three core areas – how to set yourself up for success, the vital skills you need for interviewing & to build career resilience, and how to get your “foot in the door”.
Title: Set yourself up for success in Financial Services
Topics Covered: Applications, CV, Cover Letter and general best practice when applying for jobs.
When: 23/07/20 at 11AM BST

At the end of the day, you’re not going to get very far in your chosen career if you haven’t mastered the basics. You need to know that your job applications are solid, that your CV is watertight and that your cover letter makes you stand out from the crowd.
Our first webinar is designed to literally set you up for success and make sure that your application doesn’t get overlooked. It might be that you need to be better at highlighting your transferable skills or maybe your cover letter is rather lacklustre and needs some spice to make it pop.
Using our expertise to gather the right ingredients together at the beginning of your financial services career is a sure-fire way of getting the recipe right for professional success.
Title: Career Resilience – the vital skills you need to succeed
Topics Covered: Video & face-to-face interviewing, actioning feedback and turning a no into a yes.
When: 06/08/20 at 11AM BST

Our second webinar will teach you how to ace the interview stage to secure your first role within Financial Services! We’ll be covering all the key points for success in both video and face-to-face interviewing, so you’re prepared no matter what the situation.
An important part of interviewing is having resilience and being able to bounce-back after you have suffered a knock-back. If you succumb to self-pity and allow your confidence to be irrevocably lost, then you have all but lost the fight for a great career. Of course, it can be very discouraging to be overlooked for a job you felt you were perfect for, but learning to deal with this, learn from it and move on is vital if you are going to succeed.
At the end of the day, a mistake is only a mistake if you don’t learn from it. Oftentimes, a negative experience can quickly turn into merely a minor stepping stone on the path to greatness, if only you know how to handle it properly.
This webinar will also teach you how you can recover from rejection and how to learn from the feedback you receive and do better next time, and will include past mistakes that others have made so you know exactly what to avoid! We will cover techniques such as having conviction in your abilities, how to maintain positive eye contact and how to deliver the perfect answer, rather than just focusing on the answer itself.
Make sure you sign up to our second webinar if you want to turn that no into a yes please!
Title: Choosing the Right Role For You
Topics Covered: How to find the best opportunities in Financial Services that can set your career up for life, and the different routes available such as wealth management and financial planning.

When kickstarting your career in financial services, training placements that can lead to employment with the company itself are absolute gems of opportunity. This could be courses that offer blended learning such as incorporating face-to-face contact, practical workshops and online learning, that helps to create a more rounded experience.
Our third webinar will cover how you can find the best opportunities that offer this kind of support in the Financial Services sector, providing you with a roadmap on your route to success.
We’ll also detail what types of people these opportunities look for. Often, no background in Financial Services is needed – rather they look for bright and motivated people who want to fulfil their career potential.
From what transferrable skills you need to highlight, how you should prepare and how to make the most of these opportunities to up-skill, we’ll cover all this and more in our hotly anticipated third webinar.
We know that our webinar series is perfect for those potential candidates who are looking for a new career in Financial Services.
After all, it’s been designed with you in mind! Join our three webinars to get the support you need as part of Consegna’s #DeliveringforPeople service.
