David Jones has worked in the City of London in investment banking since 1982 and is currently Managing Director & Global Head of Foreign Exchange Trading for National Australia Bank. David is also an avid traveller and has travelled extensively around the globe. He is keen on all sports and through his encouragement, NAB invests in the local community by sponsoring Welling United FC in the Conference Division of football.
David became introduced to Masterclass through Arts and Business as he was keen to engage with and help young people through the world of theatre and is proud to have been involved with Masterclass for the past eight years. The highlight of his involvement with Masterclass has so far been the success of The Two Worlds of Charlie F, a play created as a way of using theatre to support the recovery process of wounded injured and sick Service personnel. David is also passionate about supporting young people through hands-on training opportunities and during this time has felt incredibly rewarded by the success of The Apprentice Scheme which supports emerging talent through paid apprenticeships on West End productions. David likes to help young people by offering internships at NAB and also mentors them through University.
“It is wonderful to be involved with something outside of the ‘noise’ of the financial world that is so worthwhile and supports so many young people.“
