New trainees at the FBCC

The FBCC is welcoming two new additions to the team for the Autumn 2019 period. Please welcome Maria and Jade!

Maria is studying a master’s degree at Tampere University, majoring in sustainable business management. Before that, she attained a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Stockholm University. London is a completely new city for Maria, so she is excited to explore the dynamic, innovative city that London is!

Maria is interested in megatrends such as sustainable development and digitalization. As the Finnish-British business community is an innovator in these fields, Maria is excited to network with the Chamber’s members and other companies in the community. She is looking forward to the traineeship at FBCC, as its diverse work tasks will help develop her professionally.

Jade is a last year double-degree student of European Business Administration at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. She’s completed the first two years of her studies in Finland and the third-year specialization for international business and management at the University of Wolverhampton in the United Kingdom. Originally, she chose her study program specifically for its international aspect and the opportunities to study and work abroad.

At Metropolia Jade worked as a tutor for the incoming exchange students which strengthened her resolve to leave Finland for her own year abroad. During her Erasmus year at the University of Wolverhampton, and several trips to London, Jade fell in love with the country and the idea of working in the UK was born.
Jade is looking forward to learning more about marketing and organizing events. She’s also very excited to meet new people at the networking events. For the future she wishes that the internship at FBCC will help her to form a business network and give a great kickstart for her career in international business!

Maria and Jade are looking forward to meeting all of you this Autumn in our upcoming events!
