Achievements of interns and employers recognised at celebration event

On Wednesday 11th September, we were delighted to welcome interns and employers to the 29th floor of the Salesforce Tower for the 2018 City of London Business Traineeship programme celebration event, kindly hosted by global technology firm Salesforce.

With over 80 state-educated young Londoners completing paid internships of 6-13 weeks with some of London’s most prestigious businesses, there was plenty to celebrate.

The panoramic views of the City added to the excitement in the room, with interns trying to spot where they’d been working.

Once the guests had soaked in the views, everyone gathered to celebrate achievements of both interns and employers with the City of London Business Traineeship Awards, presented by the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Charles Bowman.

Designed to recognise best practice and excellence through the programme, we were delighted to present the following awards:
