Staff Testimonials

Conor Osborough
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
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
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.

Maxine Burton

I wanted a job where I could use my analytical skills. My role at the Commission is hugely varied and I have enjoyed gaining experience in two supervisory divisions, in addition to my current role in the Authorisations Team. I am continuing my professional development as a Senior Analyst following my recent promotion.

Paul Robinson Testimonial

Working for the Commission is interesting and enjoyable.  A good analyst has an eye for detail and is able to detect patterns and spot anything out of the ordinary in a company's activity.  Also the support for furthering your qualifications is excellent.

Thomas Collins Testimonial

My duties involve me writing reports from on-site visits, analysing regulatory returns and dealing with consumer complaints referred to the Commission. In addition, I have attended an insurance focused training course in Bermuda, where I interacted with regulators from the Bahamas and Samoa, to name a few.

Clara Coleman Testimonial
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 Testimonial
Sebastian Chan 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.
