Financial Sector Factsheet - National and Regional Overview


Leeds is now the UK’s fastest growing city and is classed as the nation’s biggest financial and business centre outside of London. 

The financial sector is expected to provide a high level of growth between 2015-2022, which is likely to exacerbate the recruitment challenges already being faced by many employers in the sector as most vacancies will be more senior, higher level and technical roles.

Our Financial Sector Factsheet gives a national and regional overview of the employment trends within the sector predicted over the next few years.

To support businesses in the financial sector to adapt to these changes and manage the challenge of up-skilling existing staff and recruiting new staff with the right skills sets – Leeds City College offers a range of Financial Apprenticeships from Level 2 to Level 4 including AAT qualifications.
