This is an ideal location for those with an avid interest in financial services but no previous experience, as many of the big four firms will train in these highly sought after industries.

The high profile nature of the islands mean that accountants gain exposure at a more senior level than in other locations, which assists both professional and personal development, and means that the opportunities open at the end of your contract are increased.

The islands are well placed for travel to North America and low cost flights can often be picked up at the last minute, meaning weekends in New York or Toronto are commonplace.
