A TEEN prodigy who burst onto TV screens earlier this year has been given a job at a bank to help youngsters get to grips with money.

Mog Stinchcombe, 13, has been appointed as a junior consultant to NatWest after the bank’s survey revealed more than half of seven to 15-year-olds worry about finance.

The Rugby lad, who was widely touted as the ‘people’s champion’ on Channel 4 show Child Genius in the summer, started his new role by heading down to Rugby’s NatWest branch to find out what young people need to know about money and started a video diary on YouTube.

Mog said: “How to handle money is an extremely important topic to learn about – it’s really shocking that half of children worry about their money skills.




“I need to know how to manage my finances and how everyone can be best prepared for the future.

“I’m going to come up with my own recommendations on how the bank can make sure young people like me are prepared for adult life.


“I don’t know what job I’m going to have, or where I’m going to live, but I know that being able to manage my money is going to be essential.”

Kirsty Britz, head of MoneySense at NatWest, said: “The need for financial education is clear – young people today access and use money in very different ways.

“By bringing Mog on board we want to highlight the questions young people are asking about money, and equip them with skills and knowledge to be more financially confident.”
