“Managing, selling and providing essential financial services”

Whether it’s setting up a bank account, or arranging loans, mortgages, insurance policies and credit cards, financial services are integral to everyday life. The financial services industry requires many people to keep things ticking over, be it cashiers, who perform withdrawals and deposits for customers; customer advisers; insurance brokers, who sell and manage insurance policies; insurance and investment administrators, who keep records and reports up to date; or others. As an apprentice, you could work as an insurance clerk, claims handler, investment administrator, cashier or customer service representative, plus a whole range of other roles. You’ll learn how to work in a financial services environment and follow important regulations. Every day you’ll encounter customers and numbers, so you’ll need good customer-facing skills and a head for maths, as well as good ICT skills.
