Access Opportunities

Find out more about career education for your 6th form students.

Welcome to The Brokerage!

We are here to help disadvantaged young people learn about professional careers found in the City, including banking and finance, insurance, accountancy and technology. Traditionally a large aspect of our work has involved reaching out to schools and talking to young people about how we can help develop their skills and offer opportunities with aspirational employers.

As traditional methods are now on hold, we have developed an exciting range of ways we can still reach young people and support teachers deliver on key aspects of career education.

We can help your students learn about careers in our partner companies, develop their soft skills, and learn about the recruitment methods companies use.

Furthermore, students can register with us as candidates and access exclusive work experience and internship opportunities.

Live ‘Working in the City’ webinars

We will be holding regular live webinar versions of our popular ‘Working in the City’ and ‘Maths in the City’ workshops. This online workshop is aimed at introducing careers in professional, financial and related services to 6th formers and features a live a live Q&A session with volunteers from companies who we work with. These will take place in late afternoon and will be open to any interested 6th form students. We will share dates and sign up details as they are confirmed.

More dates will be confirmed for next academic year.

Materials to share with your students

We would be happy to provide online materials and video links that could be shared in your school to illustrate the work we do and how students can benefit.
