We're partnering, as part of The Conexus Group, with The Fintech Power 50's Kickstarter scheme, which is offering 30+ fully funded six-month Fintech job placements in 2020-21.

In the UK, a new jobs program aims to create career opportunities 16-24 years old, providing full funding to employers who can offer a six-month placement. 

The Power 50 will act as a gateway representative for Fintech employers to access the scheme, creating a minimum of 30 placements across employers of all types.

Headcount's partner company, iFinance Academy, will offer new recruits industry-specialist training at no cost to employers. This will include eLearning - via the company's LMS platform - as well as video and webinar content, covering a range of introductory and compliance topics.

Other key partners include:

  • Barclays Rise

  • Innovate Finance

  • London & Partners

  • EPA Emerging Payments Association

  • L39

  • The Fintech Times

The deadline for employer applications is 06 NOVEMBER 2020, though placements can start any time until December 2021.
