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.
