MThree is a specialist in the financial services technology talent sector, operating in six countries across three continents.
Its alumni programme places graduates from UK universities; including Loughborough, Imperial College, Lancaster, Leeds, and UCL, with financial services firms to complete a two year fast-track scheme.
Jim Winter, CISI regional UK director, said: “With their connection to more than 50 universities across the whole of the UK and their strong global financial services employer relationships, the synergies will offer a competitive edge for both our members and the MThree graduates.
“MThree’s key role in bridging the gap between graduates and employers, building soft skills to complement tech skills, will help secure and develop the talent pipeline for our dynamic profession.”
