See what happens…
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.
The Life in Finance scheme gives local year 12 students the opportunity to have a one to two-week work experience placement with a Member firm, to gain a vital overview of the industry and acquire valuable knowledge and experience for the duration of the placement.
The Life in Finance scheme has been paused since the pandemic began in 2020. We are currently reviewing the scheme for 2022 and more information will be shared with teachers and students in due course.
Future Connect is a forum launched by Jersey Finance in 2018, which aims to bring together less-senior professionals in the finance industry and those starting out in their careers, this forum provides an ideal opportunity for networking, learning more about the industry and for sharing ideas.
