Joined Equilibrium in 2015

After completing a degree in International Finance and Banking at Sheffield Hallam University, I applied for the Equilibrium Diploma Academy (known then as the Equilibrium Graduate Scheme).

I had heard first-hand about the great opportunities the programme offered for both personal and professional growth and I was delighted to be accepted. In 2017 I successfully completed the programme and achieved the CII Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. I’m now working towards becoming chartered.

My colleagues are both knowledgeable and helpful, and EQ’s values and ambitions match my own. The Equilibrium Diploma Academy provided me with the opportunity to develop my knowledge in a practical environment alongside studying for the diploma.

You can hear more about my experience of the Equilibrium Diploma Academy (then the graduate programme) in this video.

Outside of work, I enjoy playing football, travelling and regularly seeing my friends.
