Finance

They say that money makes the world go round, and in many ways they’re right. Almost every business is set up to make money, and it doesn’t just happen automatically – it requires careful planning and constant attention.

Companies big and small need teams of people to look after their finances: monitoring who they need to pay, who owes them money and so on. They need people to help sort out tax bills and make sure all employees get paid on time, while making them as profitable as possible. Those finance experts are, generally speaking, people with good organisational skills and a good head for numbers.

It’s not just businesses that need help with their money. From the student taking out a loan to cover tuition fees, to the retired person claiming their pension, everyone needs financial help and advice at some stage. Employees in banks, accountants and insurance companies offer that help.

A Higher Apprenticeship offers a viable alternative to university for a number of great careers in the financial sector. Check out the Higher Apprenticeships in Accounting, Banking, Insurance, Providing Financial Advice and Professional Services to kickstart a great career in finance,

By choosing a Finance Apprenticeship, you’ll have made a shrewd financial decision. A great many jobs in the finance sector come with a higher-than-average salary, and you could find yourself, quite literally, in the money.
