About Charles and job interest

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2018 with a 2.1 in BSc Economics. Following university, I interned at a fintech start-up challenger bank, helping to audit their financial model and at an investment management advisory, where I worked across the Research and Operations teams. I took a break after my 2nd internship to travel across South America to experience new cultures and learn some Spanish. On my return I taught myself the basics of Corporate Finance. I am currently interning at an analytics startup, writing newsletters covering new EU sustainability-related financial regulation, creating decks and brochures for client meetings and working in Excel to create a model that will give a portfolio of investments a score over various environmental, social and governance metrics.

Why Should We Hire You?

I have gained great numerical ability and analysis skills throughout my degree and internships. My experience in startup environments has honed my ability to adapt across teams and projects as well as strengthened my aptness to be given a task to get on with and complete independently. My experience of being part of sports teams since I was 8 means my team-working skills are second-to-none. This has lead me to take leadership within teams at university and since leaving, I have exemplary man-management ability due to this.
