Financial, Business and Professional Services

  • Opportunities in a variety of fields and topics under this cluster
  • Hear from industry experts

There are many opportunities within Finance, Business and Professional Services for you to pursue fulfilling careers and add real value. Some of the most common fields include finance, consultancy and legal services such as intellectual property law and patenting.

From big corporations, to small businesses

Each of these areas can feature as businesses in their own right or as key functions within large organisations. For example, you could work for an investment fund or within the finance function of a biotech company or large multinational. 

You may find that the strategic thinking required by a management consultancy role in one of the ‘Big Four’ consulting firms (PWC, Deloitte, EY and KPMG) fits with your motivations. You may want to join a smaller consultancy whose culture more aligns with your values, or you may even prefer to set up your own consultancy. 

To help you navigate these opportunities and inform your future career aspirations, you can begin by exploring our employer interviews and case studies below.
