As part of the wider Experience Works programme our Finance week is a dedicated look into the world of financial services on Teesside. The purpose of the week is to give an insight into different careers and roles available within a wide range of financial, banking and professional services firms in the region. The programme involves 30 students visiting a number of member companies. The week worth of focussed activities includes a number of site visits, group presentations, and interactive sessions for students to understand skill requirements, career paths and gain valuable experience of real life finance businesses.

“This experience was amazing, I learnt about a totally different career path and loved how much the crew were like one big family. I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life before the week and went to High Tide for some guidance. I enjoyed my work placement so much and I know this is definitely what I want to do in life.”


All our programmes are FREE to our education members. If you are a school in Teesside and you’re interested in becoming a member and applying for any of our programmes then please get in touch with the High Tide team on 01642 233 597, drop us an email at or complete our enquiry form.
