We have developed a wide range of tailored programmes in partnership with many banks and corporates to meet their CSR, equality and diversity needs.
Some of these programmes and workshops provide mentoring to students from selected schools, while others provide insight and access to banks’ A-level entry recruitment programmes.
Amongst the businesses we have helped to provide opportunities to students from inner London schools are:
• Allen & Overy
• Herbert Smith Freehills
• RBC Capital Markets
• State Street
• The Bank of England
Legal sector’s PRIME commitment:
As well as Allen & Overy and RBS’s law department, we have advised a number of other firms on their response to the Legal professions’ PRIME initiative – a commitment from the legal sector to provide fair access to quality work experience in law for school-age students who have the least opportunity to access it otherwise.

We have also run programmes or specific sessions for non-financial organisations including:

Our help can vary from consultation on setting up a programme, to running sessions within a programme already formulated to a full package of formulation and delivery.
