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 aged 16-25, learn about professional careers found in the City, including banking and finance, insurance 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.

We continue to develop 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.

Please watch our School Presentation here. This can be shared with your students.

Outreach online events

These events are open to all young people regardless of whether they are a registered candidate or not. For each event, volunteers from corporate partners will be joining us so you can interact directly with professionals working in these areas.

More dates coming soon for January onwards.
