Pareto and Finastra

Pareto have been recruiting high calibre graduates for Finastra since 2010 and are proud to be Finastra's partner of choice for their Graduate Inside Sales Talent Academy. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join Finastra’s Inside Sales Talent Academy which is a structured and measurable graduate programme. The programme has been designed to enhance your professional, financial and sales skillset over the course of two years in order to prepare you for a successful customer facing role at Finastra within the financial technology industry.

One year ago, I joined Finastra as a curious Junior Inside Sales, which has proven to be the best decision I’ve ever made.
