What jobs are in the Channel Islands?

Tourism is a major industry in the smaller islands due to the scenic views, beautiful cliffs and ocean. Agriculture is also a minor part of the economy, but still exists, providing careers for farmers and truck drivers. Potatoes and tomatoes are the main export crops, shipping to the United Kingdom. This means those in the freight industry could find careers in the Channel Islands. However, since the 1960s, Jersey and Guernsey became major offshore financial centres. There are many opportunities for accountants, advisors, bankers and analysts

Financial activities are a lot more important in Jersey than in Guernsey, where the focus is on horticultural and greenhouse activities. The Royal Bank of Canada is a major employer with some 1,000 staff employed in Jersey. The island has been described as a tax haven, attracting deposits from customers seeking the advantages of reduced taxes. Construction is the second largest employer in the islands, where over 6,000 people are employed.
