Jersey Finance and its member firms will be holding a series of free, interactive and "fun"workshops in February in a bid to show local sixth-form students the variety of roles in finance.
‘Spring into Finance’ will take place at Highlands College on 11 and 12 February with each one to two-hour sessions covering topics such as funds, accountancy, banking, capital markets, human resources, compliance, wealth management, digital, marketing, law, as well as lunchtime sessions on mental health and having a positive attitude.
The free sessions will run from 09:00 until 17:00 and are open to students of sixth-form level or equivalent, who will be free to pick which workshops to attend.
The event aims to help students understand better what certain careers might entail and how to give themselves the best chances of landing their dream role.
"The finance industry has so much to offer our young people, whatever their unique skillsets and interests may be," Joe Moynihan, CEO Jersey Finance, said.
"We want to make it clear that a role in finance doesn’t have to be centred around number crunching, if that’s not an area of interest, and that you can work in areas such as events, marketing, digital, law and even social media, as a few examples.
"These fun ‘Spring into Finance’ workshops are designed to arm local students with the skills and knowledge to help them land a role which will set them on a path to financial independence and a stable, lifelong career.”
