The BFO invites future leaders in financial services to be ambassadors for ethics

The Banking and Finance Oath (The BFO) has announced applications are now open for its Young Ambassador Program. The Program encourages and supports students and graduates to adopt a strong ethical foundation as they begin their careers in the banking and finance industry.

Recognising students as the future leaders of the banking and finance industry, The BFO Board each year selects six students, and young people new to the industry, who demonstrate a commitment to ethics in banking and finance.

The Young Ambassador Program offers the opportunity for young people to participate in a 12-month program, including training and development, exposure to industry leaders, full access to The BFO events and a chance to connect with an elder of the industry.

The BFO Executive Officer, Jodi O’Callaghan said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for young people passionate about making a difference in financial services to embed themselves in the principles The BFO stands for – ethics, integrity and trust – and take these with them throughout their careers.”

The BFO is working with universities to drive awareness of the Program and encourage students who are passionate about upholding strong ethical values as they embark on their career.

In collaboration with Entropico production house, the 2019 Young Ambassadors produced a powerful video on the importance of self-reflection and serving all interests in good faith – watch it here.
