About Finance

There’s no doubt that money makes the world go ‘round, so if you’re looking for a career with clout then you can’t go past the financial sector.

Financial health is a crucial pillar to the success of every business, so if you’ve got a head for analysis and an eye for accuracy then you can find opportunities in all kinds of businesses. There is a great deal of responsibility and competition to be found in wealth-building, but there is also the capacity for you to reap considerable financial rewards, and you can be sure your skills will be translatable across industries.

As an employee of one of the ‘big four’ firms, Sarah Heveran of Ernst & Young likes the variety: ‘You get really good exposure to a range of different industries, and with small and large companies’. While, like Sarah, you might find yourself conducting bank audits in a team of 50 people, finance work can also be as personal as an individual’s tax return.
