Graduates called upon to apply for FinTrU's Legal Services Academy

  • FinTrU is launching its second Assured Skills Academy in legal services, offering 20 training places to graduates who wish to retrain in the legal aspect of financial services.

    Training will be delivered remotely over a five-week period by Belfast Met, Ulster University and Queen’s University. Participants who complete the course will be guaranteed an interview for a position with FinTrU.

    Roli Shaw, General Counsel and Head of FinTrU Legal, said the Academy will give successful applicants the chance to "embark on a career working with some of the largest global investment banks from right here in Northern Ireland – which has obvious appeal to graduates from law and language disciplines."

    “We have continued to successfully recruit multiple virtual Academies over the past year and are excited to offer further opportunities to the local talent through our Legal Academy," he added.
