Entering the financial sector as a graduate, student or school leaver is no walk in the park. It's tough out there!
If you're ambitious, determined and have your sights set on a career in finance, you deserve the chance to enter this highly competitive industry. To be successful, though, you'll need all of the information and support you can get your hands on.
That's why we created AllAboutFinanceCareers.com – the first and only finance careers website for school leavers, students and graduates in the UK.
If you're an aspiring accountant, future financial planner or wannabe wealth management expert, you're in the right place!
Our gargantuan website is jam-packed with finance jobs, courses and advice, plus tons of useful information to help you better understand the complex world of finance.
If you're not interested in finance, one of our other websites might float your boat:
Hands down, The Lion King. Such an emotional rollercoaster. It proves that even chiefs of the magnitude of Mufasa aren't safe in this world. I'm welling up now even thinking about it.
Jack Denton Co–Founder
The big dog, the raconteur, the linguaphile.
Worst job after graduating?
Working on a chicken farm. Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite? It's like that but worse. Dead chickens in bins a metre from where I was working, stifling heat and constant attacks from angry cockerels. It was alright, though, because they were paying me £3 an hour.
Jack Collins Project Manager
The coordinator, the ideas guy, the pop punk nerd.
Greatest epic fail?
When asked to do a presentation during a job interview at an advertising agency, I did some seriously mental 'outside the box' thinking and rearranged the office furniture into the shape of a car. I didn't get the job.
Olivia Piepe Marketing
The communicator, the branding maestro, the West End musicals aficionado.
Worst ever dining experience?
After hearing microwave 'pings' at a pricey Caribbean restaurant, asking who was cooking the food and being told "Oh, the chef's not here today."
Jos Weale Editorial
The wordsmith, the perfectionist, the Evertonian.
Most heartbreaking moment as a football supporter?
Sifting through the hefty chronicles of Everton-related heart breaks, it would probably have to be waving goodbye to the then 'Wunderkind' Wayne Rooney. Wayne, it could have been something special. We got over it
Brendan Vella Design
The scribbler, the creator, le geek c'est chic.
Eating entire packets of things that are either meant to be shared or eaten in more than one sitting. This month it's coconut macaroons. Last month, malt loaves. Admittedly, I don't feel guilty about doing this, but I'm often told I should be.
Lizzi Mehta Account Executive
The go-to girl, the marmite lover, the cox.
Weirdest thing ever eaten?
Without a doubt it has to be a fried grasshopper. I was offered one at a market on a trip to Uganda. I said yes, expecting the worst! But it just tasted like Ready Salted crisps.
