Legal, Finance and Accounting Jobs

Legal, finance and accounting jobs… did you know?

Jobs in finance and accounting are all about helping people to make their money work harder, whether they are customers just like you or big organisations. You might be working with loans, mortgages, savings, investments, tax, buying and selling… you might be imagining big banks in the City but the world of finance has a lot of variety. Jobs in finance are really important because everything does better with a healthy economy, from education to high street shopping. You won’t be surprised to learn that jobs in law are really important too, because we need a safe society where the needs and human rights of people are met and laws that help us all are being kept. Whatever your background might be, there’s a route into the world of law, business and finance for you.

  • As a school leaver you can apply for business apprenticeships – yes, even degree apprenticeships – with youth-friendly employers like EY Careers.
  • Entry routes are more flexible than you might think. Maybe you fancy a change to a law career after doing a degree in something completely different? Not a problem – there’s a conversion degree for that.
