“It was great having the students join us for work experience in May. Everyone they worked with commented on how much they enjoyed talking with the students about how they can achieve their career goals and the different opportunities available to them. The students were keen to get involved with everything the firm had to offer, including various employability workshops and events for our Living Well Month in aid of mental health awareness.”

We have been working with The Brokerage since 2011, hosting workshops and providing opportunities for our volunteers to take the students on tours of our offices and to help with the workshop activities. Given that we only have a small Corporate Responsibility Team, it is enormously helpful that The Brokerage make it very easy and straightforward for us to host workshops.”

Beazley has hosted a growing number of interns every summer, with some returning for further work opportunities. The programme has proven to be a real success for both interns and our organisation.  It is a fantastic opportunity for businesses looking to support and tap into a talented, diverse and local young workforce.” 

Beazley, City of London Business Traineeship Employer of the Year 2017

We were extremely impressed with the calibre of candidates through the City of London Business Traineeship programme. The students were inquisitive, insightful and highly ambitious. The way The Brokerage supported us through the whole process was fantastic too and we would highly recommend the programme.”

I wanted to pass on our huge thanks to you for a terrific City Careers Open House workshop today. All our volunteers found the experience very enjoyable and rewarding and we hope that the pupils and staff of Stockwell Primary did too.”
