The Brokerage Citylink - Lambeth Academy and St Angela’s/St Bonaventure’s

On 6th March some of the team joined forces with The Brokerage Citylink to meet with students from local London schools, Lambeth Academy and St Angela’s/St Bonaventure’s

The team talked informally to small groups of students,  discussing our careers, qualifications, backgrounds and experiences.  The students also had the opportinty to practice mock interview exercises with the team.

The objective of the session was to give students a better understanding of careers in finance and business and introduce the importance of good professional behaviour and effective networking skills.  It also highlighted the variety of jobs available, and different paths into the City and some of the challenges and rewards that they may encounter in their future.

The feedback from the students was really positive, here’s a few comments from the students:

“I really enjoyed speaking to the volunteers and found them very interesting. It was intriguing to find out about their journeys into employment.”

“It was a great experience and I was able to see how I could get a job in the near future.”

“It was a very important day, as it was beneficial for any career. I learnt a lot.”
