The Solidarity Occupational Guild for Financial Professions is a community that makes it its business to connect professionals who offer services in the financial industry, to give young people opportunities in the profession and to act as a watchdog, dealing with issues in the profession by coming up with workable solutions.

The Occupational Guild for Finance Practitioners offers a network to its members through which they can interact, can share best practices and can do business.


The occupational guild is serious about members’ jobs, and for this we need to establish knowledge hubs. Guild members have a responsibility to not only empower themselves but to equip our children with knowledge and skills to enter the world of work and to establish healthy communities.

Quality is key to excellence. Our dream is that we would all be able to make ourselves indispensable so all who want to work can work.

The Solidarity Network of Work, together with the occupational guild, forms a network that focuses on work. It connects institutions and individuals with each other, and it fosters a sense of belonging among people.

Join the Occupational Guild for Finance Practitioners.
Encourage colleagues and other financial institutions to become part of the guild so we can realise our dreams and empower the profession overall.

Make yourself or your company available to take in clerks and interns so they can get the necessary guidance and gain knowledge to enter the profession as a high-calibre employee. Send an e-mail to us at

Would you like to become more involved in what we do?

  • Make yourself available as a mentor.
  • Share your knowledge with others and actively participate in networking opportunities.

Do you want to invest in the future? The guild makes study grants available that empower young people to study.

Guild members are saying the future starts now. We are promoting quality and we are creating hope. If you want to become more involved, please contact us at

“Dié titel skep vir my opnuut hoop en vuur my passie aan.”
