A bit about SFE Young Professionals

The SFE Young Professionals Committee was formed in 2016 by young people from across the SFE membership, with the aim of providing opportunities for career development, access to networking opportunities, events to develop Industry knowledge and contacts and promoting financial services to the next generation. The network now has over 300 members and holds regular events across Scotland. SFE Young Professionals is part of Scottish Financial Enterprise, but has a separate committee which sets its own agenda. Events across 2019 include an annual reception at the Scottish Parliament and learning events touching on topics such as agile working, personal data and technology.
