Financial Forces: CVN networking afternoon

Thursday 26th April saw the City Veterans’ Network host its third annual ‘Financial Forces’ networking event at HMS President. Building on the success of our previous events, we were proud to host 14 employers from across the City. Ex-military employees spoke to 80 Service Leavers of all ranks, from the British Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.

Jonny Laws, who has helped organise the event since 2016, said “The idea behind these events is a very simple one – to get people talking to each other. There’s no set agenda, and the emphasis is on sharing experiences.”

HR representatives and ex-service men and women from across the Financial Services were on hand to share transition advice and job opportunities, as well as discuss details of their military internships and work experience programmes.

We would like to thank the following organisations for their support with such a successful event:

Citi
Bank of America Meryl Lynch
BNY Mellon
KPMG
JP Morgan
Barclays
Goldman Sachs
Lloyds of London
Canaccord
UBS
The Officers’ Association

We would also like to thank the Greater London RFCA and HMS President for facilitating the event.
