Choisir un métier

Choosing a career

Finance is an essential sector of activity for employment and for the Geneva economy as it generates over 37,900 jobs and contributes 13.1% to cantonal GDP.

One of the central missions of the GFC is to serve as a proactive information clearing house for careers, education and training in the banking and financial industry.

Choisir un métier

According to the Swiss Labour Force Survey, at the end of 2020 43% of staff in Switzerland had a university degree compared to just 28% in other sectors of the economy. These same statistics also reveal that 27% of the workforce joined the banking sector after taking a course of basic professional training. This proves that there is more than one gateway for access to jobs in the financial sector.

In order to present the high diversity of careers in finance & banking, the GFC participates in events and develops materials for HR and training managers, bank staff wishing to undertake further training, and anyone else who is interested in pursuing a career in banking.
