George Smitheram Analyst, Investment
I joined the Graduate Development Programme in order to obtain a broad perspective of the world of finance, and out of an interest to see how regulation has improved following its short comings leading up to the financial crisis. I would recommend the Programme on the basis of the training oppotunities and the valuable experience and enjoyment gained from a variety of work.
Conor Osborough, PhD Assistant Director, Risk
Having moved from academia in the UK to Guernsey, to enjoy family life, the Commission were quick to recognise the transferable skills that I already had. Leading on projects, critically analysing data, communicating insight to inform decision making, problem solving, mentoring and training others are just parts of my varied role. The supportive nature of the Commission and their commitment to staff training are real benefits.
Alice Loveridge Senior Analyst, Investment
The Graduate Development Programme is an excellent opportunity to broaden your skills; I am doing something different each day which at times can be challenging but, in my opinion, it makes the job a lot more interesting. In addition to being able to move around the Commission during the Programme, there are also opportunities to gain multiple professional qualifications.
Thomas Jones Analyst, Investment
Aside from the engaging work that I have so far been involved with, the Graduate Development Programme offers an excellent opportunity to develop your skills and really stretch you professionally. I have enrolled on the Investment Management Certificate programme, and I have also been involved in a wide variety of training courses such as open source intelligence gathering through to in-depth finance training. Therefore, I would recommend the Graduate Development Programme to anyone that enjoys a challenge and getting stuck in from the start.

Clara Coleman Graduate Analyst, Investment
From day one I have worked on a broad spectrum of areas including policy development, financial investigatory work and meeting with senior management at some of the island’s largest firms. Senior members of the Commission see true value in the work that graduates do and this is reflected in the level of responsibility that I was given at such an early stage in my career.
Sebastian Chan Graduate Analyst, Banking and Insurance
The Commission needs to react like the rest of industry and understand topical matters in order to secure good regulatory outcomes. Senior management have been very supportive and have tasked me to carry out a number of engagement tasks and reviews. The Commission encourages staff to undertake professional qualifications and provides a lot of hard and soft skill training.
