Staff Testimonials

Millie Falla
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
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
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.

Ben Harding
Ben Harding Technical Specialist, 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.

Angus Morgan
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
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 H
Ewan Hamilton 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
Alastair Aird Senior Analyst, Financial Crime

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
Nick Royle Analyst, Banking & Insurance

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.

Cameron Andrews
Cameron Andrews Graduate Analyst, Risk and Operation

When looking for opportunities post-graduation I was keen to undertake a role outside of the private sector and the Commission’s application and hiring process was refreshingly simple when compared to others.

Ella Fitt
Ella Fitt Graduate Analyst, Investment, Fiduciary and Pension

I have really enjoyed my time here so far because the Commission’s community is kind and supportive, colleagues are keen to share their knowledge and give you the space to be curious, ask questions and learn.
