Introducing the One Search ‘Young Women into Finance’ Scholarship Programme


Despite their strong desire to recruit an equal number of men and women, many of our clients report very low levels of applications from women.

One such firm – one of the biggest institutional investors in the world, who invest millions in promoting diversity and inclusion – reports that they only had 18 applications from women out of every 100 in their 2019 graduate hiring round.

We at One Search believe that with positive support and encouragement for young women of school age (post-GCSE), we can help to change this. By working alongside these young women we can open up the possibility, and hopefully ambition, of a career in finance and help them to achieve it.

The One Search ‘Young Women Into Finance’ scholarship programme is designed to demonstrate to young women that they can pursue a career in Finance and, for those who show serious interest and potential, to provide a pathway to achieving this upon graduation.
