Finance Sector Growing in Essex

Having a job closer to home will be more productive and rewarding as less time will be spent on commuting to and from London.

Employers are looking for people at all levels to enter their workforce, from Director level to Apprenticeships. Experience or industry qualifications are not required to get into the sector as many employers have established learning and development programmes to help gain qualifications whilst working.

The sector offers a wide range of traineeships, apprenticeships, graduate schemes, flexible and part time working options.
