For day 4 of our birthday retrospective, our Top Moment for today is the launch of the BRUIN Academy!
The Academy was launched in July 2014, with 5 students joining the programme in its first year. Over the last 7 months, the students have progressed through a structured programme of training and mentoring from senior managers and formal training in-house. This is specifically designed to prepare them for a career in financial services recruitment with the intention for them to progress to a Consultant role. As part of their training, students have gained exposure to the different specialisms within financial services; a detailed understanding of candidate sourcing and market mapping; and prepared supporting documentation for client pitches and presentations. Over the next few months we will be celebrating the graduation of many of the students to Associate Consultant role and preparing for the 2015 Academy intake!
Kirstin Duffy, COO of BRUIN Financial, commented, “BRUIN Financial continues to grow at a phenomenal rate and the Academy will ensure that we continue to offer our clients and candidates an unrivalled service offering. We pride ourselves of delivering Tomorrow’s Talent, Today and the Academy now ensures that internally at BRUIN we are promoting the same ethos.”
