We believe in giving back 

As a digital-first company, we benefitted from the huge wave of digital transformation spurred on by COVID-19.

Young people, however, have not been so fortunate. COVID-19 has pushed youth unemployment in the UK to nearly 15%, further widening social and economic inequality. 

However, not everything is so bleak. There are major, game-changing opportunities in the world right now, and being a fast-moving fintech, we are exposed to these opportunities on a daily basis. So we decided to give back in a meaningful way - and in a way that we know how.

We understand fintech, technology and financial markets so we put together a diverse and inclusive mentoring and work experience programme for high school, college and university students.

We continue to work with key influencers and government policy makers to shape employment opportunities for the next generation coming into the sector.


Fintech mentoring

To raise awareness of the career pathways available to young people, ipushpull CEO Matthew Cheung founded the Work in Fintech initiative.

Started in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic we have worked closely with young people across the UK helping them to find exciting opportunities working in the Financial Services industry, exposing them to the wave of digitisation occurring, teaching them about the importance of key technologies such as, artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics which are shaping the industry globally.

The aim of the project

Through Work in Fintech, students across high school, college and university have met, interviewed and been coached by experts across fintech and finance including TP ICAP, Symphony,  Blockchain.com, Google Cloud, Goldman Sachs, the London Stock Exchange Group, J.P.Morgan, Revolut and many more. The programme aims to create the skills, mindset and network for anyone who would like to enter the world of finance and technology.
