City of London Business Traineeship Programme

Managed by the City of London Corporation, the City of London Business Traineeship (CBT) Programme gives state educated, ambitious and talented young residents from City-fringe City of London Corporationboroughs the chance to undertake paid internships with City employers. 

Each summer, we offer over 100 opportunities across financial, professional and related services, IT, insurance, legal and business administration sectors. 

Year 13 students are given a unique opportunity to gain real experience, real responsibility and real pay after their sixth form studies.

City of London Business Traineeship programme 2016

This programme is open to Year 13 students who live and study in any of the following boroughs:  

  • Camden
  • Hackney
  • Islington
  • Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Tower Hamlets
  • Westminster

If your school is based in one of the above areas, it would be great to organise an assembly or classroom presentation so we can introduce your students to the programme, giving them a chance to access a 6-13 week internship at a leading firm. 

Apprenticeship and school-leaver opportunities 

We help leading companies to fill their school leaver, apprenticeship and graduate roles by introducing them to a diverse pool of talent. We prepare our candidates for the world of work so they are able to compete with their affluent peers in a crowded recruitment sphere. 

All London state schools are eligable and we'd be delighted to visit your school to introduce students to The Brokerage and the career opportunities we offer.

Please contact a member of our team or call 020 7628 9904 to arrange for The Brokerage team to come to your school.
