Introduction

Industry What sort of job would you find in this industry? Name some companies in this industry: An industry you would be interested in? If not - why not? Agriculture, Forestry, fishing Jobs: Agriculture: Farmer and grounds and maintenance manager Forestry: territory sales manager, field sales executive, Ranch manager Fishing: fishermen and production manager Companies: Clementson Pearse, Christopher Murray, Penguin recruitment, mercer farming, hull fish company The agriculture industry is not stable at the moment due to the economic recession. Also I cannot farm or fish. Seasonal factors affect stability. Energy and water Jobs: Energy: biomass project manager, plant workers, electricians, solar energists Water: plumbers, water maintenance engineer, pipe fitters Companies: EDF, British Gas, Thames Water, Veolia water, Scottish water. The energy and water industry does not interest me because I do not like working in any of the jobs which I mentioned and outdoor environment is something which does not interest me. Manufacturing Jobs: Manufacturing: Car mechanic, warehouse supervisor, manufacturing design engineer, fashion designer, mail sorters, factory operator. Companies: magnum interior, total clothing, vinyl cut graphics, G and G graphics, BMW, Microsoft. Working in the outdoors does bother me because I do not like working in sandy, dirty conditions.

The term banking and finance simply refers to a sector of the economy which provides consumers with financial services. This industry caught my eye because I enjoy the application of Mathematics and Business both in one. I am primarily interested in corporate financing, which simply consists of providing the funds for corporations. The fact that risks are involved and predicting profitability for shares prices also allows the adrenaline to be pumping which I like. The jobs which I am currently interested in regardless of the current economic climate are stockbroker, accountant, equity analyst, basically any job field which allows me to carry out predictions and maximise an entity wealth. I tend to have good analytical and teamwork skills. To be able to enter the field of banking and finance you would have to embark on further/higher education studies and gain qualifications in the relevant field. The qualifications which are required are usually a university degree in the relevance field. E.g. Bsc Business Management and finance. * Retail Banking * Investment Banking/corporate banking * Private Banking * Mergers and acquisitions * Actuarial * Property Insurance * Insurance Broking * Underwriting * Accountancy The corporate banking sector of the banking and finance industry is a division which I am interested in. ...read more.

Conclusion

This concerns the government because if the Banking and Finance industry was to collapse completely the UK economy would collapse within seconds as the economy is depends upon the industry. The Pie chart (www.CBI.org.uk/publications) aside shows the number of people employed in each sector in 2009. As I can see from the pie chart, the manufacturing sector has the most percentage employed (22%). This could be due to less expertise needed, e.g. degrees or relevant skills, as most manufacturing companies provide training for individuals. The most decreased number of people employed is the hospitality section (0.5%), this may be due to less people spending less on going to hotels and holidays and saving their money due to the economic crisis. However, the main industry I am concerned about is the Banking, Finance and insurance industry because if I were to rank the pie chart in order of most employed the banking industry would come 5th, this could be due to less graduates studying relevant degrees to work in the Banking and Finance industry. However, all the industries in the pie chart rely on each other to operate and survive. If one industry was to disappear overnight, then the whole system would find it hard to cope, e.g. energy and water disappeared then there would not be any electricity to operate the computers and lighting. ?? ?? ?? ??
