Financial Services Skills Commission

The Financial Services Skills Commission is an independent, industry-led Commission. We work with the UK Financial Services sector to ensure that it has the talent and skills it needs for the future.


Building skills in financial services

Our aim is to ensure that the financial services sector has the talent and skills it needs for the future.  We work with businesses to advocate for innovative collaboration and problem solving to increase skills in the sector. Our work brings together industry, government and the education sector to overcome the sectors skills gap and increase the recruitment and retention of a more diverse workforce.

Through four workstreams, we are addressing the major skills gaps impacting the sector, and finding solutions to issues around access to talent.
