In today's hyper-competitive hiring market, we examine how UK businesses can recalibrate their employer offer to attract and retain top talent in the finance sector. With hiring intentions cooling slightly, but the demand for talent - mainly digital and sector-specific expertise - remaining high, we explore several trends redefining what it means to work in finance based on the Brook Street Finance Jobs Report.
First, there's an increased demand for roles that didn't even exist a few years ago. Jobs in risk, compliance, data analysis and AI are on the rise. Secondly, the report also highlighted the growing importance of soft skills. While technical expertise is essential, skills like leadership, creativity, emotional intelligence and adaptability are becoming just as critical.

She also shares strategies and learnings on how to bridge this skills gap in finance.
