From retail banks, investments banks and insurance companies through to hedge funds and private equity firms, the implementation and effective maintenance of the right technology can provide competitive advantage and cost savings that are essential for the long term success of any company. This is why financial services are now one of the biggest employers of IT professionals in the world.
Information technology jobs in the financial services sector are offered by companies operating within the industry and by third-party vendors, who deliver their services to finance companies, and are usually divided into five key areas:
Developers are at the very leading edge of technology. It is within this role that new platforms are created offering those with Java and other coding skills the ability to realise their full potential. Or for those banks that buy ‘off the shelf’ platforms, developers are required to tailor the system and ensure effective implementation across the entire network. This is a very demanding role that can bring massive rewards.
Whether you are a technology support analyst, a client support analyst – technology or take on a different job title, the role of any business analyst in IT is to identify a business need and then liaise with the IT department to find a solution. Such improvements can provide a strategic advantage over the competition and the opportunity for heightened success.
It is the role of the project manager to lead the effective implementation of any new IT project. This will start with strategy planning and go through structuring, implementation to completion.
Project managers are required to liaise closely with developers, third party vendors and internal business clients to ensure every new IT project is a success.
When any type of IT issue arises, it is the responsibility of those within technical support to resolve it. Some technical support jobs will focus on one programming language or platform, while others will span hardware, software, networks and databases. Find the role for you and the challenges bring their own rewards.
