About us
For 20 years, The Brokerage Citylink has been building links between the employers in London's financial districts and the local communities surrounding them. We have introduced tens of thousands of young Londoners to City careers and helped thousands to access actual career opportunities.

Our vision

A world where a young person’s ability and aspiration alone determine their career path...

What we do

We are a charity that helps Londoners from state schools access experiences of work, employability skills and jobs through our partnerships with employers.

Our mission is to work with young people to raise aspirations, create access and provide opportunities within financial and professional services to achieve diversity in the workplace.

Why we do it

Despite being one of the world’s biggest financial centres, London’s financial districts are surrounded by areas of severe deprivation, disadvantage and income inequality.

At the same time, the diversity of the workforce within business and finance is not reflective of the local communities it serves, in terms of gender, ethnicity and
socio-economic background
