If so, then this could be the opportunity for you. 

There are more than 700,000 people employed in UK’s Financial Services industry, and within that comes an unparalleled variety of professions – attracting people with a greater variety of skills than almost any other industry.  In the same way you do not need to be a soldier to work in the armed forces, you don’t need to be the next Wolf of Wall Street to have a career in finance. There are jobs in human resources, catering, IT, marketing, sales, auditing, administration, procurement and facilities management to name but a few. Of course, there are a number of roles where your interest in economics or maths will also be advantageous.


We welcome people with all abilities.

Paralympian, Anne Wafula Strike MBE, is promoting an initiative – ‘Opportunity Not Sympathy’ – to help people just like you to explore a career in financial services. We have the support of many leading financial services firms such as Northern Trust (www.northerntrust.com) who are looking at offering apprenticeships and entry level positions with full training and support provided.  There is no minimum level of qualification required and no experience in financial services is necessary; all you need is a desire to succeed and the ability to contribute to a team.

We welcome people with all abilities and by working in partnership with a city based recruiter, we can give you an overview of what to expect from a career in financial services and the type of jobs which would suit you.  Please contact Anne via: olympiastrike@hotmail.com or Richard Webber at Ink Recruitment via: richard.webber@inkrecruitment.com
