    Hello, I've been searching everywhere for bank work elsewhere experience. I've tried every bank. It seems the only way is to get the job through connections. Does anyone have any connections with any bank in Hinckley? Or could find a work experience for me? Thank you!

    Are we talking Retail branch banking? Go into store, ask for the manager and give them your CV. Hope for the best! It's true, connections at such a young age is probably the best way to get in.

    If we're talking about Banking in some of the bigger institutions, opportunities are rare for Year 10/11 - only at A Level do they offer inside days and what not.

    Perfect, that's great for your CV. Get as involved as you can, learn the basics of accountancy and it'll look very good on your CV when applying for future Banking events.

    Thank you, CVs are confusing in my opinion, I don't really know what to do for them.
