Why Midshore created the RE:Finance programme

Often we come across people who want to change career and get into the financial services industry. Coming from another industry the way to get into Guernsey's largest industry has no clear route, and often can depend on who you know. We have known or heard of a cleaner becoming a trust administrator, a builder becoming a compliance analyst, a barman and a milkman both becoming project analysts and someone who worked in a bookmaker training to be an accountant. There are always jobs available in the financial services sector, but it is often difficult trying to get into finance.

We are not saying that the financial services industry is for everyone… it takes hard work, dedication and commitment to forge a career and ongoing education (whether further qualifications or continuing professional development) is key to remaining at the top of your game.

The RE:Finance programme will lead you through the complex financial services terminology and concepts. We have launched this programme as there are people wanting to get into the industry and there is an industry that needs skilled staff. This programme bridges the gap creating a clear route.
