Facilitating links between students and top institutions

Durham University

About

The Durham University Finance Society facilitates links between the City’s top institutions and Durham’s finest students. By running a variety of regular financial training workshops and employability events, we aim to equip our members with the skills they need to maximise their career prospects in the financial sector. Our aim is to raise the calibre of Durham’s students to a level such that they are able to compete effectively in an elite global job market, and to provide our sponsors with access to these exceptional candidates. Throughout the year, we hold a number of engaging events. These aim to educate our members on current financial conditions, enable them to create links with our sponsors, and improve their employability to help them gain that important internship or graduate job offer. With the help of our sponsors, membership remains free and open to all students. The ultimate goal is for our members to join one of the elite institutions with which we work, and we are committed to providing our sponsors with the highest standard of service, working in close partnership to attract the best talent in Durham to their organisations. The society was previously known as the ‘Durham University Investment and Finance Group’ and was renamed in 2015 in a rebranding process that involved a complete overhaul of the aims, Constitution and marketing. The society was founded in June 2003.
