On Thursday 19th November Sixth Form students considering a career in the banking sector were invited to attend the third presentation in our popular series of career talks, a nine part series designed to inspire students currently exploring their career options.
Providing our students with a first insight into the world of lending markets, private equity and investment, Old Blue Marc Gorton from the Class of 1992, who has over the past eighteen years built up a wealth of experience working for one of the world’s largest banking and financial service organisations, HSBC. Since joining the company’s Executive Graduate Training Scheme in 1997 Marc has held several roles within the company’s numerous departments, including Credit and Risk and Private and Corporate Banking. Now a Global Relationship Director Marc discussed the highs and lows of working with clients who are based abroad, the characteristics needed to succeed within the industry and with clients; and Marc also revealed to our students that banking has a lot less to do with numbers than you would think.
Drawing his presentation to a close Marc directed our students to the industry’s graduate access points and highlighted the sector’s willingness to welcome students from a wide variety of degree programmes including geography and law, with training provided throughout the course of each individual’s career.
We would like to thank Marc for providing our students with fantastic insight into the banking sector.
