Jersey Finance has created a beneficial scheme that brings A Level students and finance industry professionals together.
The programme, for year 12 students, includes:
- A ‘Meet & Greet’ event that offers students an opportunity to sit down with industry firms and discuss what a placement with them would entail and more broadly gives students first hand interview experience.
- An introduction from Jersey Finance exploring everything that students need to do/know when beginning work.
- A one to two week work experience placement with a local company in order to gain an overview of the industry and acquire valuable knowledge and experience for the duration of the placement.
There are also additional opportunities to attend an introductory session and to be part of our Life in Finance spread that is featured in the Jersey Evening Post, which more detail can be provided on should you wish to take part in the scheme.
