Classified: Training manager financial industry

I typed: training manager financial industry into google and this is what I got. Quite different job descriptions. However, I particularly liked how it was done.
What do you think the job descriptions are for?
Would you post something similar, or vastly different?

Preaching to the choir in Human Resources

I’ve got a few questions for you.  As far as I know the term “Human Resources”
is becoming extinct.  Now the titles are

Sustainable Development Goals, David Attenborough speaks out and up for Climate Change

After speaking with some of our students in the economic sector, it was brought to my attention that a topic of interest is the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS set out by the UN.  Although Number 1 is to end poverty, this week has been an interesting week for climate change, as none other than Sir David Attenborough spoke on the […]

Brexit – explained

Brexit is an oncoming reality.  Have you thought more as a Spanish person, or more on what that would mean to the British person?  There are quite a few Spanish people working and living there, or vice-versa, British living in Spain.  What does this all mean to them?
