Case Studies

I was thinking about a career in finance but couldn’t find a role that really interested me. CY introduced me to a vacancy for a financial analyst. At the time, I didn’t even know what that was so would never have applied to that job myself. They were absolutely right though, as 3 years later I still love my job! I have had great training and support to study CIMA. I am now fully qualified.

After 3 years doing the same finance role, I decided it was time for a new challenge and registered on the jobs boards. I was getting alerts for over 50 jobs a day, but the problem was all the ads were pretty vague, I couldn’t really tell what job was going to be right for me and I didn’t want to apply to something not as good. I am so glad I registered with CY. They let me know about the right roles for me and always gave me full details about the Company, so that I could decide if it was something I liked the sound of.
