Late 2015 Fidelity announced the creation of a global shared services structure reflecting their desire to design a global organisation in line with their strategic vision to deliver better futures for their clients. This function plays an essential role in strengthening their culture of continuous improvement enabling them to create simpler, more automated, and scalable and lower-risk ways of meeting clients’ needs quickly

Feedback from 2016 New Horizons Programme Participants

Fidelity case study 1“It has been an absolute game changer for me, since the day we had the first workshop during the assessment day I felt confident and empowered to achieve what I wanted.”


Fidelity case study 2“The support I have received on this programme has been exceptional. Each individual has been assigned a mentor. My mentor has been extremely helpful and encouraging throughout. I can address any concerns directly to her and she’ll take the time to listen and help. Where childcare has been an issue, one of my biggest concerns before joining the programme, she has been reassuring and supportive throughout.

My manager has been available for me to ask any questions. She continuously reiterates the fact that she herself had returned to work after an extended break, so is very empathetic”
