As part of our 50 year celebrations we asked former students to get in touch and share their stories of success!
Oliver, former Lowton High School student, studied A levels and was part of the SJR Elective Future Entrepreneurs. He left SJR in 2019 and successfully secured a place on a prestigious apprenticeship scheme with Allied Finance.
Over the last two years Oliver has gained experience in a number of different roles within the company and his daily tasks include making valuations of clients pensions and investments, acting on clients requests for withdrawals and networking with providers such as AVIVA. He will be qualified in two months after completing 6 exams.
As a college we work closely with Nick Wylie, Managing Director of Allied Finance. Nick acts as a support and mentor to our Future Entrepreneur students and each year visits college to launch the Allied Finance Challenge and hosts a number of workshops. This year Oliver came back into college with Nick to provide an insight into his role, share his career journey and inspire our entrepreneur group.
Thank you to both Nick and Oliver for your continued support. We wish Oliver the best of luck with his final exams and hope to see him in college again soon!
