One of the central missions of the GFC is to serve as a proactive information clearing house for careers, education and training in the banking and financial industry. The Foundation works closely with the Office for Training and Continuing Education (OFPC).
To this end we participate in events that present careers and apprenticeships in banking. We also develop materials for HR and training managers, bank staff wishing to undertake further training, and anyone else who is interested in pursuing a career in banking.
Zoom Métiers "Bank and Finance"
Zoom Métiers are careers information events for high school students organized by the Office for Training and Professional and Continuing Education (OFPC). They consist of presentations and question and answer sessions with professionals and trainees. The GFC regularly takes part to represent the financial and banking sector.
Cité des Métiers
Established in 2008, Cité des Métiers is a careers fair for students and is held annually in November at Geneva Palexpo. It offers young people an opportunity to discover many different professions, choose a training pathway, and discuss their career options with professionals from the financial sector. During the 2015 edition, the GFC proposed a booth to learn more about the many interesting careers available to you in banking.
The financial sector is very diverse and offers many opportunities for interesting careers. It can be difficult however to determine which educational pathway matches your aspirations and career objectives.
