BNP Paribas Securities Services

We are delighted to be sponsoring the Investment Challenge in Scotland again for the 9th consecutive year.

This exciting initiative gives young people an "on the job" learning experience.  Participating students gain a real insight into how the financial markets operate, learn how to work as a team, take calculated risks and make decisions under pressure all whilst experiencing the excitement of the trading floor.  

At BNP Paribas, we are committed to equipping young people with life skills which will enable them to look forward to their future. Our involvement with the Investment Challenge is an innovative example of how we do this.

Skills Development Scotland

Having a career or job that you love depends upon much more than simply being in the right place at the right time. Skills Development Scotland is here to provide you with all of the advice and guidance necessary to get the right job or develop your career.

Whether you're at the stage of choosing subjects at school, selecting training, furthering your education, deciding upon a career or managing your career, we can help you to uncover new opportunities to fulfil your potential.

Our involvement in the Investment Challenge means that we can engage with young people and help them meet these goals.

My World of Work

The dynamic world of financial services is being brought to life through an interactive careers site.

Information on employers in financial services, details of the existing roles and advice on taking the next steps can be explored on the website, My World of Work.

My World of Work will ensure people follow a seamless online career journey – from discovering what they are good at, to exploring the industry and to finding out how to apply and get the job.

BNP Paribas staff will visit your school talk to your students about their own career experiences and about opportunities in the sector.

We used Dealing Room with three different Business Management classes. All of them really enjoyed it and took it very seriously, whilst having fun.  It is invaluable.

"An excellent resource that I will continue to use as it shows pupils how Maths is used in real life and how quickly they have to calculate and think in order to make a profit."

Stephen Dodds, Maths Teacher, Calderglen High School, East Kilbride

"A fantastic resource developing skills such as decision making, teamwork and problem solving. The pupils love it."

The Global Investor simulations are superb.  The program works for all ages at secondary and all ability levels and the pupils are completely engrossed in the experience.  It teaches all pupils about the way the world of finance works in a fun and easily accessible way.
