Merchistonian Careers Cafe - Teddy Bonfield (06-12)
Huge thanks to Teddy, who currently works with BlackRock, the largest asset manager in the world. He works on the Middle East & Africa desk, focussing on managing relationships with large institutional clients including Sovereign Wealth Funds, Pension Funds and Treasuries. Teddy shared his career pathway from A-levels to date, talked about ‘degree flexibility’, the importance of internships at university and being proactive to set yourself apart from other graduates as well as the skills to success in a company such as BlackRock.

We received some lovely feedback from the Pupils after the session:

"Teddy's talk was superb, I will definitely take the message of being proactive and seeking out experience and internships into my further education. Advice that will hopefully set me ahead of the standard in terms of employability."
