Why Work in Finance?

As Jersey’s largest industry, a career in finance presents a great opportunity to explore a variety of roles across a number of different sectors.

The industry prides itself on its forward-thinking, well-regulated approach. We believe Jersey has a responsibility to support the transition to a more environmentally and socially sustainable global economy. Our goal is to be recognised as the leading sustainable international finance centre in the market by 2030.

What Skills Do I Need?

The finance industry is such a wide-ranging industry , there are a lot of opportunities that can fit your skill set. It’s not just about your qualifications but your soft skills too, from the way you communicate with others, work as a team to how you write an email these are all important skills.

We asked finance firms in Jersey what skills they are most looking for when interviewing for a position and overwhelmingly the feedback was that technical skills can be taught, but soft skills and a willingness to learn are qualities that they are most interested in, particularly from people at the start of their career.

To help you consider which areas you might want to explore more based on your qualifications and interests on our careers page which includes a number of useful resources.
