Experiences of former board members

“An important part of my board year was finding out where my interests are. My position as external relations gave me an insight in different companies in different sectors. Partly because of the projects that I coordinated, my interest in Corporate Finance and M&A grew. The London Banking Tour eventually convinced me to apply for a position in Investment Banking, which lead to my current position at Barclays.”

David Meijer

Analyst at Barclays - Board 2018/2019

“Thanks to my board year at the FSA, I learned about the ING traineeship where I started my career. On a professional level, my board year brought me a lot in terms of personal development. I was assisted by a coach within the FSA that assisted my board in our collaboration and taught me to reflect on my behaviour. On a personal level, the FSA brought me 5 very close friends, whom I still talk to on a daily basis!”
