FROM EDUCATION TO EMPLOYMENT AND BEYOND

Yemi Lufadeju, Communication Specialist, UNICEF

“I have had the pleasure of working with business mentors at Finito and gained some effective leadership skills and valuable work ethics. The bespoke guidance received, has helped me stay on a path that best meets my aspirations. Finito is not solely about helping people get a job, it is about equipping people to help them make the most of opportunities and fulfil their potential. Weeks and months after helping me to achieve a move to New York, its Chief Executive never ceases to amaze me by remaining an approachable source of advice and encouragement.

Evie Forbes, Hill & Knowlton Strategies UK

“When I was first introduced to Ronel by Quintessentially, I was a scared final year university student with an idea of what I wanted to do after graduating, but no idea how to get there. Ronel helped focus my ambition, helped tailor my CV according to this goal, and gave me the confidence to make applications. I felt supported throughout the process which goes a very long way when facing the epic task of choosing and starting a career. I am now in a job I am very happy with and I’m sure he can help many others do the same.

Oscar Peter, Marketing Executive

“I finished uni this year, and when I was a few months from graduating I started panicking, like all third-years do, about having to become an adult. I have always had a very clear idea about what I wanted to do, but Ronel helped me make that happen, by putting me in touch with people, and then guiding me through the interview process. He obviously really cared about helping me, and without him I can honestly say I wouldn’t be in the job I’m in now, doing what I want to do.”

Isabel Batchelor, Team Assistant, Finsbury

“Finito provided reassurance and spurred my confidence to succeed. Their creative design team took my ideas and originated collateral which got me noticed by prospective employers. I will always be grateful to them for their hands on approach and being available providing support, encouragement and advice. The best thing is, that even though I changed my mind about what I wanted to do, Finito guided me to my chosen career path and I have never been happier.”

Gabriella Pauk, London Advertising

“I am so grateful to Finito for helping me open the door to a career in advertising. They took the time to really prepare me for any eventuality during an interview. The hilarious thing was that all of the questions and answers which we carefully role played, never came up! I still managed to be offered the position, which I of course accepted”

Amy Goillau, Underwriting Assistant, Offshore Energy

“I first met Ronel, the Finito founder, on a Compliance Team secondment with The Conservative Party. I was lucky enough to get chatting with him about my career aspirations and he very kindly, through his contacts, made it possible for me to visit Lloyd’s of London and see for myself the insurance market in operation. When I was sure that this was the career for me, I was able to secure an opportunity with Arch Insurance. Ronel made a great difference to my career, and I’m sure will now do the same for many others through Finito.”

Adam Fischer, Senior Corporate Communications Manager, Kaspersky Lab

“I graduated from university with a broad idea of the industry sector which I wanted to work in, but without any idea of how to break into it. Ronel very kindly agreed to take the time to help me identify avenues of opportunity and sectors that seemed most appropriate to my skills and interests. Even after managing to secure a graduate role in a global consultancy, Ronel continued to be an accessible source of sage advice.”

Richard Palengat, Head of Marine & Energy, AEGIS London

“I have known Ronel for more than 30 years, and he was in fact instrumental in helping me secure my first job as a Lloyd’s underwriter all those years ago. He is, and always has been, innately personable and skilled at bringing out the best in people. I have every reason to believe he will make Finito a real success. His personality and business experience combine to make him an ideal mentor to young people. With his guidance on ‘presentability’, and the benefit of his many connections, students on the course are bound to go far.”

Sam Carter, Real Estate Agent

“Finito is exactly what young people today need to help them get their first foot on the ladder, and to allow them to mature and make the right decisions as they transition from education to work. Ronel helped my son embark on a career in medicine some years ago. None of our family are medical people – we didn’t know where to start – but Ronel has fantastic connections and a great ability to put people together. He introduced Toby to a consultant that he knew at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, and gave him a huge helping hand. In launching Finito, he will now be able to do the same for lots of other young people.”
