As lead sponsors of Birmingham Young Professional of the Year (BYPY), we’re looking forward to showing our support for the best young talent that Birmingham has to offer. Here Laura Thursfield reflects on how being named Birmingham’s Young Professional of the Year has impacted on her career.
We’re excited to have launched a brand-new award to take centre stage at this year’s Be the Difference Awards, which recognises our commitment to support gender equality across our business and the wider finance industry.
At the end of last year, we teamed up with Lawrence Dallaglio and his charity Dallaglio RugbyWorks to help support vulnerable young people across the West Midlands and get them into sustained education, employment or training. Here, our CEO Stephen Hunt talks about his experience attending the first of three career taster days that we’ve held for students on the programme.
We caught up with our director of point of sale finance Andrew Barker to look at the opportunity presented by smart homes to the UK’s tech retailers. Our homes are constantly getting smarter, with recent research suggesting that more than half of us (59%) will own at least one smart device in three years’ time – up from 26% today.
Colleagues from the BNP Paribas Personal Finance recruitment and brand teams took part in the first ever Solihull Business Expo on 27 March held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Solihull. They were also joined by Lawrence Dallaglio’s foundation of Dallaglio RugbyWorks with whom BNP Paribas Personal Finance has a three year partnership.
