Hargreaves Lansdown co-founder Peter Hargreaves has lent his support to the launch event of a new start-up focusing on employment within the financial services sector.
Alexandra Butler and Stuart Raison have a combined 32-years experience and knowledge of financial services and have now joined forces to form Skilling Gate in a bid to use their expertise to help other professional services firms with successful recruitment.
Having worked together at Hargreaves Lansdown the pair will offer a unique perspective to recruitment built on their industry knowledge, leadership experience and reputation for identifying talent.
Drawing on established contacts and links with universities and colleges Butler and Raison will concentrate on building up confidence and skills to encourage people to consider a career with financial services.
Butler said: “It’s a sector that makes such a huge contribution to our economy which offers diverse and challenging job opportunities, yet is often misunderstood by those taking their first steps on the career ladder.”
“We know from our wealth of experience within the sector and recruiting hundreds of people ourselves what works. And we also know what it’s like starting out in the financial services sector.”
“Hargreaves himself says that much of his success is attributed to having the right people in the business. We believe with Skilling Gate we can provide the formula to get the right people into the right positions and boost talent within the industry.”
Hargreaves will be talking about the importance of people within business at the launch of Skilling Gate on 27th February 2018 at The Albion, Clifton, Bristol.
