Financial services apprenticeships are much more then simply money management

Financial services deliver the bank accounts that protect our personal finances, the loans that we obtain to set up businesses, the mortgages we use to buy our homes, the insurance policies we take out to protect our cars, and the pensions that preserve our way of life in old age.

The provision of all of these services requires a workforce of highly skilled professionals dedicated to excellent customer service, ethical business and strict compliance with regulations. Above all, to work in this industry, you must be committed to preserving the rights of the consumer and providing unparalleled service in a challenging fiscal environment. Financial services apprenticeships offer a solid, accessible route into a financial services career, in banking, investment, insurance and pensions, at organisations ranging from the high street branches of banks to global investment management firms.

You’ll gain many transferable skills, including teamwork, project management, problem solving and communication, which are all highly valued by employers.

There is an increasing number of apprenticeships in this sector, reflecting the growth of these services and the need for highly skilled professionals. Actuaries are needed to develop financial models, using their mathematical skills to measure the probability and risk of future events, and their financial impact on a business or individuals. Professional economists are also needed to produce rigorous, relevant and impactful economic analysis to drive decision-making.

Don’t forget to check out the range of accountancy, credit control and taxation roles on offer, careers that are constantly in demand, with companies seeking skilled professionals.
