    Just finishing A2 this year (currently studying in Milton Keynes) and would rather find a trainee / apprenticeship role than go to university,

    I am looking to become a Stock Broker & Financial Advisor ; pressing buttons and processing orders is good and all but I really want the customer interaction & relationships (advisor),

    I am looking for general advice and some help in regards to landing a job, I have been applying however prior experience seems greatly valued! Thus I was thinking about Recruitment Consultancy as a pass time to gain experience in a similar industry to give me a boost,

    I would really appreciate any help and would like to thank you all for posting in advance!

    I don't think anyone would see Recruitment as a stepping stone to Stock broking or Financial Advisor. You would need to get something numerate, Accounting would seem the obvious choice. Neither are particularly 'junior career' roles and you would most probably need to spend several years in other jobs before progressing into either of those choices.
