Opportunities for Graduates
Amelia Falla Senior Analyst, Banking and Insurance
Having studied philosophy at university (with a particular focus on ethics), a career at the Commission struck me as the perfect way to strive to help others; you can experience a true sense of accomplishment from the knowledge that your work is dedicated to the aim of protecting individuals and the Bailiwick from financial misdemeanours through the channels of policy, supervision and enforcement.
Conor Osborough, PhD Deputy Director, Risk and Operations
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 Edwards Assistant Director, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension
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 Collins Senior Analyst, Banking and Insurance
Having joined the Commission on the Graduate Development Programme, I have been able to progress and learn a number of new skills through the range of tasks I have undertaken, whilst studying for professional qualifications. The Commission also gave me the opportunity to undertake a secondment with a regulator of another international finance centre and I learnt a lot from this experience.
Alexandra Bevis Senior Analyst, Banking and Insurance
The Commission has an open and friendly working atmosphere, and you are encouraged to be inquisitive and put forward new ideas from day one. Guernsey is a fantastic place to work; it combines the expertise of an international finance centre with work-life balance, and my commute to work consists of a walk along the sea!
Ben Harding Senior Analyst, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension
No two days are alike, with each task presenting a unique challenge to tackle. Having come from a background of physics, I had little experience or knowledge surrounding the financial sector prior to joining the Programme. Fortunately, the Commission operates and facilitates numerous training courses, both internal and external, which has allowed me to expand my field of knowledge significantly.
Grace Tucker Analyst, Financial Crime
Every day I walk through the doors of an organisation that encourages growth, values you more than just a number and is a place that not only makes real difference, but that inspires you to do the same. Working at the Commission you are surrounded by a wealth of knowledge from an amazing team of people that I am proud to work alongside.
Angus Morgan Senior Analyst, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension
One of my favourite aspects of life at the Commission is the culture of knowledge-sharing and teamwork, which enables graduates to learn from experienced colleagues. Graduates are also helped to progress through the chance to take on responsibility at an early stage, for example, through participating in onsite visits and thematic reviews.
Christina Rumens Senior Analyst, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension
My work is extremely varied and ranges from working on projects, preparing for on-site visits to dealing with regulatory requests. Responsibility is also given at an early stage as within my first few weeks I was heavily involved in an internal division project. The Commission supports your professional development through numerous internal and external training courses and assists you in working towards gaining professional qualifications. Everyone is very friendly, extremely supportive, and more than willing to answer any queries or questions you may have. If you are looking to start, progress or even change your career, I would highly recommend the Graduate Development Programme.
Ewan Hamilton Graduate Analyst, Enforcement
Whilst this line of work demands high levels of performance, you will always feel the Commission’s full hand of support. For instance, they strengthen your knowledge of the industry by assisting you through professional qualifications and they provide first rate in-house training.
Alastair Aird Graduate Analyst, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension
Coming from the UK I had hesitations about moving to Guernsey, however the Commission was extremely helpful in assisting me with my move. The Commission also has a fantastic sports and social committee that allows you to discover this beautiful island and meet new people.
Nick Royle Graduate Analyst, Financial Crime
One of my favourite aspects of the Commission is the opportunity it offers to work across different sectors of the financial industry, with the Graduate Programme allowing for rotation between divisions of different specialty. The variety of work, and responsibility afforded to graduates, is also extremely rewarding.
Carys Bromley Graduate Analyst, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension
The opportunity to complete a professional qualification during the Programme has also been of great benefit. I have chosen to complete the CISI Level 4 Certificate in Investment Management, and the Commission has been incredibly supportive during my studying.
Tiffany Moeller Commission Staff Officer (Graduate Analyst), Risk and Operations
One of the most striking characteristics of working at the Commission, has been the level of respect and willingness to share expertise with which every single one of my colleagues approaches their interactions. I learnt very quickly that, even as someone at the very start of their career, your opinions and knowledge are valued, and you will be given responsibility and the opportunity to grow.
