Celebrating Careers and International Women’s Day 2022

11 March 2022

This week, 7-12 March 2022, we celebrated National Careers Week in the UK. Over the past five days, we’ve been sharing colleague stories from all over our company to showcase the huge variety of careers available at abrdn.

We spoke with school leavers, graduates, career changers, Women Returners and explored careers that you wouldn’t necessarily expect in asset management.

On Tuesday, 8 March, our content focused solely on some of our brilliant female colleagues who shared their journey to where they are today in celebration of International Women’s Day.
