On October 10th, 2022, Robinson welcomed over 85 students from Robinson College and other Cambridge colleges to the annual Financial Services Recruitment Evening, organised by the Development Office and student-run Robinson College Finance and Investment Society (RFCIS).
Students enjoyed meeting Robinson alumni who shared their diverse experiences working in different financial services and gave tips on how to break into the industry. A highlight of the evening was the panel discussion chaired by Charles Prideaux (English,1985) on the topic ‘Opening the market: Demystifying careers in finance.’ President of RCFIS, Lucas Crossman, says “We are extremely grateful for all our alumni guests taking the time to attend our event.
Feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive, with many emphasising how insightful speaking to our guests was. We would like to especially thank our panellists for helping us organise an excellent panel discussion: Charles Prideaux (English, 1985), Nicole Holmes (Engineering, 2000), Victor Li (Engineering, 2011), Alexis Atteslis (Economics, 2004), and Ian Oxley (Mathematics, 1993).”
RCFIS look forward to inviting familiar and new alumni to their next careers evening in October 2023.
