Welcome to our student newsletter titled ‘A Taste of Finance’.
It’s the Government of Jersey’s ambition to see more Islanders access rewarding jobs by 2037; encouraging home-grown talent to build successful careers in Jersey and attracting people with essential skills to help businesses develop.
At Jersey Finance, we believe we can contribute to this future target by working with young people like you, through our education initiatives and encourage you to discard the cliché that a job in finance is boring.
So with the aim of promoting a bright future in finance for young islanders, we wanted to create a newsletter that highlights key information about education events and initiatives in Jersey, the different roles available to you as well as relevant news about the industry and top tips on how to progress from your studies to securing a job.
“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations” – Steve jobs
In December 2018, Jersey Finance is hosting a ‘Finance Fayre’ in partnership with Skills Jersey. This event aims to bring together our Member firms, students, school leavers, undergraduates and even career switchers to speak about the opportunities available to them in the financial services industry.
For more information or if you’d like to discuss the event further, please contact Amari Hernandez.
Congratulations to all students who have secured a placement with one of our Member firms!

Over the past decade, almost 3,000 young Islanders found their first job within the finance sector. You can be a part of this thriving sector and embark on a career which will offer you innumerable opportunities, both professionally and personally, whilst being proud of the fact that your contribution is helping our Island remain prosperous, now and in the future.
You don’t need to be an expert number-cruncher, as there are a huge variety of roles available within the industry. These include administration, marketing, human resources, accountancy, legal, events and business development; so there really is a role to suit all skill-sets.
Working in a bank isn’t just about numbers. It’s about working with great people in teams from technology to marketing or digital to funds. There’s something for everyone in RBS International and its okay if you’re not sure what you want to do. That’s why we developed our two year graduate programme, it gives you a chance to build your confidence, try new things and develop skills you didn’t realise you had.
