Why work in finance?
Jersey's finance industry:
A Positive Impact

In fact, for every job that’s created in the finance industry in Jersey, many more are created outside of the industry.

You can be a part of this thriving sector and embark on a career which will offer many 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.

A common misconception is that you need to be an expert number-cruncher, but really there is a huge variety of roles available within the industry. These include administration, marketing, human resources, accountancy, legal, events, compliance, project management and business development and much more; so there really is a role to suit all skill-sets. There are also training programmes and schemes for those with the right qualifications, work experience, aptitude and ambition.

Foundations of our Industry

Our banks attract clients from across the world and a sizeable share of Jersey’s total deposits are held in foreign currencies, a reflection of the international appeal of Jersey as a banking centre.

The breadth and depth of services provided to the corporate sector from Jersey is one of the features that differentiates the Island from some of its competitors.

Jersey has developed a well-respected and forward-thinking funds sector that offers regimes from retail options through to the more sophisticated and institutional end of the market.

Jersey is arguably the number one jurisdiction globally for trusts, with a pedigree in the field of administering trusts since the 1960s.

Jersey is a world-class centre for fintech. We have a forward-thinking regulatory approach, which sets us apart, and this has been vital in cementing our standing as a highly-successful digital jurisdiction.

Jersey offers Islamic investors a flexible legal system, a forward-thinking regulatory regime and a tax neutral environment. This positions our jurisdiction as a clear leader for Islamic financial services.

We’re proud to support individuals and organisations with their philanthropic and socially responsible investment goals.
