The banking sector is a vast industry with a very high usage of contractors. Both the ever evolving IT infrastructures along with the complex network of rules, regulations and compliance that govern this sector require constant attention, review and development. It is in these areas that the majority of the demand falls for contractors and consultants in banking. Here are a few examples of the type of contract and consultancy roles available in the banking sector:
If you have experience of project management as a permanent employee in the banking sector, a project management role as a contractor is a great way to develop the experience that you already have and apply those skills to different project areas. Contract roles can be a great way to start exploring different areas of banking and to make the move to a different industry more feasible, without the drop in pay.
You may have done this role as a permanent employee, moving from one project to another as per the needs of your employer, but there are also many contract roles within the banking sector for business analysts. Taking on business analyst roles as a contractor rather than an employee can give you more control over the types of projects that you work on, allowing you to shape your career progression around the work areas that are important to you.
IT systems testing
Systems testing is an essential part of any project and more often than not in this day and age, this means IT systems testing. Again, this is a role that many will first be introduced to as a permanent employee, but it is one that lends itself perfectly to contracting with contracts being based on each separate project.
Management consultants & change coordinators
With all the changes that have taken place in the banking sector over recent years the demand for management consultants is high. With each merger or de-merger there are implications for the way in which the management structure functions. Management consultants are called upon to assess the best way forward following these changes. Change coordinators are in great demand to see through those changes and manage the impact that it has on the bank and its employees.
