Finance Drinks 2014

On Thursday, 20 November 2014, as part of our OE Careers Network, the Development & OEA Office hosted a drinks reception for OEs involved in the finance sector and current Year 12 pupils.

This event provided OEs with the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with current pupils interested in pursuing a similar career. 

The evening began with an introduction from guest speaker Obaid Choudhry (2004), who works for Rothchilds as a Global Financial Advisory. Having read Natural Sciences at Cambridge University, Obaid joined Deloitte for three years as an auditor and completed the ACA during this period. Thereafter, he moved to Rothschild where he currently works as an M&A investment banker and has recently completed deals including the sale of Dr Martens and the IPO of Poundland.

This was yet another extremely successful OE careers event, evident via a selection of photos taken from the evening.
