Finance Recruitment Event


Looking for some career inspiration? Come to the Financial & Related Services sector Recruitment Fair Tuesday 17th April, 5pm - 7pm.

We are really excited to be hosting the first Financial & Related Services recruitment fair in partnership with the Essex Business School at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus. The event will bring together employers from across Essex to showcase the different roles and routes into the sector and the opportunities they offer within their own organisation.

This is the first of a series of events to encourage more people to enter the sector who would not traditionally consider finance as a career path. Essex employs more than 25,000 individuals and is an intrinsic extension of London’s world leading Financial and Related Services sector. The proportion of vacancies that are hard to fill in Financial Services due to a shortage of people with the right skills has doubled since 2013 in Essex.

Hear from employers, including:

  • DST Systems, (formerly IFDS),  delivers industry experience, technological expertise, and service excellence to help clients process, communicate, and safeguard the critical, high-value information their customers need.
  • RSA Insurance Group (Royal Sun Alliance), is one of the world’s leading multinational quoted insurance groups.
  • First Data, a global leader in transaction processing, First Data is dedicated to evolving the future of data-driven commerce
  • Rickard Luckin, are a leading chartered accountants and tax advisers with bases across Essex, providing specialist services, including small business support, audit and business strategy.

Also attending will be the National Career Services, Jobcentre Plus and staff from the Essex Business School.

This event is relevant for anyone looking to re-enter the jobs market or a career changer or a young person starting out in the world of work. The sector offers a wide range of traineeships, apprenticeships, graduate schemes, flexible and part time working options. Many employers have established learning and development programmes to help you gain qualifications whilst working. You do not need to hold industry qualifications to move into the sector!

All attendees are able to book one-to-ones with career advisers and employers. Book your free tickets here.

Refreshments and free parking is available for all attendees.
