Why you should pursue a career in finance

With the financial sector employing over 1.13million people, the opportunities for careers in this area are as diverse as they are numerous. From problem solving and analytics to forward planning and research, there are a plethora of exciting and dynamic careers to choose from.

The varied nature of this sector means that it can accommodate a wide variety of backgrounds and skillsets. Whether prospective employees are seeking out a career from scratch or to build on an existing one, working in financial services is a great way to explore a career path that can take many directions. The benefits of working in this sector don’t end there. 


Salaries in this industry are usually rather competitive, with even entry-level positions offering good annual base salaries and generous bonus schemes.


The financial services industry must be in a constant state of innovation to respond to changes in the market. This means that employees must keep on learning, which in turn creates more opportunities when it comes to career progression. 


Almost every subsector within financial services requires employees to undertake some form of professional qualification. Employers will usually pay for studies so that their employees can build on their skillsets.
