Andrew Hunter has gone from strength to strength during his tenure at Cambridge University; playing a pivotal role on the rugby pitch and as a leader off it, which ultimately resulted in securing a graduate placement this Autumn.
After honing in on where his passion resided he turned to add-victor for assistance in transforming that into a career opportunity. This, heavily in part due to Andrew’s hard-work and execution, has since materialised into an exciting entry-level placement at a Global Bank.
Originally from Sydney, Australia Andrew recalls his earliest rugby memory “I was about five years old and my Dad was away for business overseas and Mum was sick of me destroying the house. So she decided to take me over to our local rugby club and I haven’t looked back since.” Fast-forward 15 years and he’s playing at Twickenham Stadium in the ever-contested Annual Varsity Match, driving his team to victory.
We got a chance to chat with Andrew as he reflected on that particular victory, the similarities between sport and finance and offers two key items of advice for student-athletes seeking exciting career opportunities.
