Apprenticeships or entry-level positions without a degree?


Does anyone have any experience of getting an apprenticeship or entry-level position straight out of school (without having a degree)? I’m particularly interested in the finance/banking industry, but am worried that not having a degree will make it really hard. Are there any other industries it might be easier to break into, or do you always need a degree even if you’re starting at the bottom? Any help you could give me would be brilliant - thanks!
