Verve teams up with Antony George to help new talent in the profession

15 February 2024

The Verve Foundation has partnered with Antony George Recruitment to encourage and support new talent into the financial services industry.

The strategic partnership will seek to give people employment opportunities and ensure they have all the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in their careers.

The Verve Foundation’s We Are Change programme is designed to provide fully funded training and qualifications to those looking to start a career in finance, while Antony George will help them to ‘solidify’ their career progression.

Hayley Rabbets, head of The Verve Foundation (pictured), said: “Our We Are Change programme operates through sponsorship from established firms and providers. Those sponsors can recruit from the talent pool but when there aren’t roles available through existing sponsors, we need to ensure there are still opportunities for our students; working with Antony George will allow us to achieve that.

“We’re really looking forward to collaborating with the team at Antony George to support our community from their first steps into the industry, right through to career progression. It’s important that we work with those whose values align with ours and I’m confident that we’ve found that in the team at Antony George, who are a wonderful addition to our existing partnerships.”

Lewis Byford, co-founder of Antony George (pictured), said the financial services industry is in constant need of fresh perspectives and diverse talents.

“Our collaboration aims to bridge the gap between skills development and employment opportunities, ensuring that aspiring individuals entering the finance sector receive the necessary training and support for a successful career. The values of The Verve Foundation resonate with our commitment to adopting positive change in the industry, and we look forward to working together to empower and uplift the next generation of financial professionals,” he added.
