      Hi Sue,
      The plan is that we will hold similar events on the different professions across the country so watch this space.

        Would there be a dial in or any materials which come out of the meeting for interested parties based elsewhere?

        I would love a session in Bristol or the South West!

          Please see Susan's answer to the previous query.

          We won't necessarily be issuing materials as some of the examples of the work available will vary from region to region depending on the departments within it.

          Thanks
          Paul.

            Hi Paul / Susan

            I would be interested in attending this event but unfortunately due to work commitments I am unable to attend. I am in Liverpool and wondered if there was somewhere on the internet you could signpost me to for more information about the Financial roles?

            Thanks,
            Mira

            Mira,

            Thanks for the message. My personal suggestion would be to log on to the professions page on CS Learning to see the skills and learning suggested and also look at what comes up if you search under Finance job roles on CS Jobs to see what kind of roles exists at what grades (and what they entail).

            I will email your details to the Finance speaker at the event. He should be able to suggest anything additional you can do.

            Regards,
            Paul.
