What our Graduates say…
Molly Sellers, Graduate (2021)
Joining QMPF as a Graduate allowed me to gain hands-on experience from the outset. I was able to work alongside everyone in the QMPF team, from fellow analysts to QMPF’s founding partners, which allowed me to gain a broad understanding of all elements of each project I worked on. Weekly team meetings and one on one training gave me an insight into different projects that the company was involved in across the different sectors. Due to the training in the different sectors and aspects of project finance, as well as external excel training and studying for the CFA programme, I have been able to hit the ground running and actively apply the training to projects that I am working on.
Since joining QMPF I have been involved with various energy and renewables projects, including district heating networks and renewable energy generation plants. I have worked on different university developments throughout the UK and have been involved with advising on funding structures and strategies for different projects.
Most importantly, QMPF is a friendly, supportive, and sociable team who are more than happy provide support and expertise.
Joe Moore, Graduate (2020)
Starting working life in the midst of a pandemic can be daunting, however joining QMPF has been a seamless experience thanks to the virtual support, range of training and the friendly team atmosphere at the company. Everyone made an effort to introduce themselves in person despite never having had a full working day in the office.
I have expanded my financial knowledge through my level 1 CFA studies which has become more and more relevant to my work as I progress. The projects I am working on have been interesting too, including helping advise on, and providing financial modelling for, an equity raise for a build to rent developer and financial modelling for a student accommodation development project.
Other positives to QMPF include the opportunity to develop professionally and work across multiple sectors and projects within a few months of joining. Despite predominantly being limited to zoom socials so far, the benefits of working for a small, sociable team should make the experience even better in the not-so-distant future once we can do more in person.
