Take part in Life in Finance 2019

The scheme also continues to give the many finance firms offering placements to those students some real food for thought about the value our young people can add to the industry.

Those taking part are clearly embracing the creativity and enthusiasm our young people can offer, and that’s absolutely vital. It means that young people can look to the future with more certainty around their career options and that employers can focus on the talent that is available locally.

In 2018, 35 A-Level students from six different schools took part in the scheme and once again, learnt a great deal about the variety of roles available within the industry and gained a valuable insight into what the industry is all about.

There is still time for Jersey Finance Member firms to take part in this year’s programme. If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to participate in the scheme, please read our overview document or contact Amari Hernandez by Friday 15 February.

Education Working Group

We are putting together a working group for 2019 and would very much like our Member firms to be part of it. This forum would consist of a cross-industry working group of our key education partners and associated representatives to identify and address the challenges and opportunities specifically related to the finance industry and how we could work together to raise awareness among Islanders, in particular to students.

We’ll also seek your views on our 2019 Careers in Finance Fayre and how we can encourage Islanders to find out more about what our industry has to offer.

If you are interested in taking part in our Working Group, please contact Claire Lyons by Thursday 31 January 2018.
