Season's Greetings

Brokerage AlumniWe're almost at the end of 2012 - and what a year it was. We would like to send a huge thank you to all our teachers, volunteers, corporate partners and candidates for all the incredible support we have received.

Here's a few of our achievements this year:

  • 149 workplace visits brought 2520 young people into the City, Canary Wharf and the West End
  • 156 young people successfully gained paid internships and job opportunities
  • 17 of our candidates are currently in long-term work placements and 15 are now in permanent employment
  • Young people from 101 schools have been able to benefit
  • 66 businesses and institutions supported us with funding, workshop venues and placements, and more than 600 volunteer hours were contributed

"It's great to make a difference to students from the same area that I came from."

"It's really useful for me to help explain my role!"

Workshop volunteers

"It's opened my eyes to see that even I can work in a place like this"

"The volunteers were so nice and friendly and they explained everything in a way we could understand."

Workshop participants

  "Although it was challenging, at the same time it was very fun and exciting. It has been extremely valuable and will definitely contribute to success a long way down the line in life.

In all, I loved it!"
