Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

A Pais­ley stu­dent has been recog­nised by a busi­ness or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Do­minic Gib­son was one of six stu­dents to be pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate and £250 at the In­ter­na­tional Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices District Glas­gow Stu­dent Awards.

Do­minic, 27, was nom­i­nated for the award by Pais­ley’s Uni­ver­sity of the West of Scot­land where he has achieved a de­gree in Ac­count­ing and is look­ing to work in Fund Ac­count­ing.

The awards pro­gramme was es­tab­lished by the IFSD Part­ner­ship to high­light the wealth of tal­ented grad­u­ates emerg­ing from uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges, pre­par­ing for ca­reers in fi­nan­cial ser­vices.

All six win­ners were nom­i­nated as out­stand­ing achiev­ers’

Pre­sent­ing the award to Do­minic was Kevin Rush, head of eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment at Glas­gow City Coun­cil.

He said: “Many con­grat­u­la­tions to Do­minic on his achieve­ment.

“These awards recog­nise the great work be­ing done by the uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges, and the re­la­tion­ships they have with the fi­nan­cial ser­vices sec­tor, to en­sure a steady pipe­line of well qual­i­fied grad­u­ates to work in the in­dus­try”.

Since its launch in 2001, the IFSD has been de­vel­oped by a part­ner­ship of the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors led by Scot­tish En­ter­prise and Glas­gow City Coun­cil.

The district has at­tracted more than 15,000 fi­nan­cial sec­tor jobs from some of the big­gest names in global fi­nance in­clud­ing Mor­gan Stan­ley, JP Mor­gan, Bar­clays, BNP Paribas, HSBC, es­ure, Tesco Bank and Aon.
