Working in the City brings your students into the heart of London's financial districts, giving them a chance to experience firsthand what working life is like in some of the Square Mile's biggest employers and begin networking with City professionals.
Since 2000 the Brokerage has brought more than 12,000 young people into the City, and Working in the City is now well established as a unique opportunity for students living in inner-London boroughs to gain an understanding of, and to begin accessing, one of the worlds most powerful finance centres.
