How to get a job in financial services

The continued growth of the financial services industry makes it an attractive prospect for potential employees. But competition can be fierce. How do you make yourself stand out from the rest when it comes to applying for your dream financial services job?

Know the lingo

Employees who are just starting out in the industry would do well to brush up on some of the jargon and acronyms used by the industry. An easy way to do this is by exploring the benchmark CISI and CFA UK qualifications, which can be completed within a few months.


Researching the company and how it operates is a good start. Go one step further by understanding the products that the business offers and how they work within the context of the industry. Then make sure this shows in your application.

Give employers what they are looking for

Instead of thinking about what your employer can do for you, think about what your employer is looking for in an employee. This is usually someone who is dedicated, willing to learn and able to add value to their team. Demonstrate these qualities using previous experience and studies.

Show passion

It is very likely that prospective employees will be asked why they want to work in the finance sector. Prepare a solid answer that demonstrates passion and commitment to the industry by thinking about what drives you and sets you apart from other candidates.
