Access to Finance - New Film Launch

We've made another film! Following the amazing success of our documentary about women in engineering, we've turned our attention to the world of finance.

If this word conjures up images of rich blokes swanning around in corner offices, you’re not alone! The finance industry can sometimes suffer a bit of an image problem among young people - many believe it’s only for people who went to private school, or the ‘right’ uni. But that's not the case - as this clip shows, anyone can get into finance if they have the drive and determination...

We’ve teamed up with the top talents of HSBC, the Chartered Insurance Institute, the ACCA and the Financial Skills Partnership to help spread the message among employers, schools, pupils and careers advisors. You can watch the full film, Access to Finance, by clicking here.

To make the film even easier to use we've divided it into handy chapters, which you can find here.

We’d love you to help us share the film on Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you can think of - and make sure we get the message out there that finance has something for everyone. 

Also, don't forget to look out for our next mini-documentary project on careers in IT - coming soon to a YouTube channel near you!

The lure of another year to make up your mind, or a wise choice for your future career? Postgraduate study can be both these thing - more often than not, at the same time!

And how do you squeeze the most out of your contacts?
 
We wanted to find out, so we asked a whole bunch of very well-connected professional types what their secrets were - and they were very happy to divulge. Here's a video of what we learnt.

Graduate Engineers and a SuperSonic Car!

At CP towers, we're working on a huge amount of new content for the website and our clients. One of the most exciting projects brought us in contact with the Bloodhound project. For those that have never heard of it, this is the British attempt to smash the world land speed record. It's an immense project but what makes it so special is that the primary aim is to inspire a generation of kids with what can be achieved with science and technology. Breaking the speed record is secondary.

Below is a snippet of a video we're producing that features some of the brains behind the project. We can safely confirm that it is the coolest car we've ever laid our eyes on. The top gear cool wall isn't nearly wide enough to plot this little beauty.

Office Romance - a perk of work or your worst nightmare!

As the saying goes, you spend half your life at work so you better be doing something you like. But with working hours getting longer and longer employees are increasingly eyeing each other up for a boost to their job satisfaction!

So, can it ever work...the office romance. Or is it just a gamble. A risk not worth taking. A fast track to your P45? We couldn't decide so we packed the camera and put it to a public vote...

 

UPDATE: Good spot from @GarethGeorge - look out for the new Dr Who half way through...
