City Business Traineeship

City of London Business Traineeship programme 2016

Since 2000, we have delivered the City of London Corporation's flagship employability programme. The award-winning programme gives state-educated ambitious and talented young residents from London the chance to undertake paid internships with City employers.

We reach out to state schools and colleges to engage high-achieving and motivated students from the state sector. In doing so, City firms are introduced to an untapped and diverse talent pool of competent young people.

The programme is fully funded by the City of London Corporation, and aside from the trainee's wage and any training provided to them, participation in this programme is completely free.
