Read an Excerpt

Careers in the City, by a senior financial analyst: This is a wide ranging field with jobs to fit all different skill sets and aspirations. Great numeracy is not key just basic GCSE arithmetic is fine for most areas. Ultimately it is possible to set up one's own business in the field or end up running a major international business or one of its divisions or locations. Preparation and visibility: A first degree in any subject is acceptable. The key is getting a good degree grade in order to get visibility. Institutions are looking for talent, motivation and the ability to fit in. Some knowledge of the area is useful before interview as a sign of motivation however employers take into account your academic training. The fact that you have chosen to study banking or economics at the age of 18 does not mean that you are well suited to it. Of course certain specialist areas require specialist skills such as legal, accounting and economic research departments. There is entry at pre-degree levels however the disadvantage is immediate. Graduates are promoted ahead. Today most areas of work require exams and continuing professional development in order to keep up standards. The support you get for these will vary however most organisations will pay for study course and grant a modicum of study leave. Career routes vary greatly according to qualifications and attributes. Essentially there are operational/support functions such as finance, legal and HR and front line functions dealing with customers - institutional or private individuals. Compliance is a major area today and is a career path in itself. There are tiers of management within these areas.
