Over the course of a week FREF hosted 8 pupils from 2 Edinburgh schools, the Royal High School & Boroughmuir High School.
There was a packed agenda with presentations from valuation, legal and investment firms and the FREF team. Each presenter talked about their own career journeys and gave tips for success, giving insight into their companies and potential career paths for the pupils. The pupils also had to work on a lending case study, with a presentation on the final day, which demonstrated what they learned over the week.
The pupils asked excellent questions throughout each presentation, showing their enthusiasm and willingness to learn about different types of businesses FREF works with.
Fairfield would like to extend thanks to Savills, Core Capital, Addleshaw Goddard, Oaktree Capital and abrdn for participating in the work experience programme.
