Available schools workshops (Spring term 2016)

The Brokerage offers two city-careers focused Working in the City 1 & 2 workshops for GCSE and Sixth Form students. Last academic year we held over 300 workshops in over 30 firms in the City of London and Canary Wharf.

The workshops are completely FREE and offer students the opportunity to spend the day at top city firms such as: The Bank of England, Deutsche Bank, Reed Smith, Allen & Overy and PWC.

Working in the City 1 focuses on introducing students to the Business and Financial Services sectors and the career opportunities available there. The workshops students will have the opportunity to gain real insight into the industry by meeting and interviewing city workers. Throughout the interaction students will both witness and be encouraged to demonstrate professional behaviour, as well as gain an understanding of the importance of taking full advantage of networking opportunities.

Working in the City 2 focuses on making students more aware of the recruitment processes in the city, provides confidence for students in answering interview-style questions, helping them understand their own particular strengths and weaknesses. This workshop will get students thinking about their own “transferable skills”, experience and qualifications, and provides vital insight, knowledge, and experience which will aid them when they come to have their own job interviews.

If you would like to book onto a workshop please complete and return a Working in the City memorandum to [email protected] The workshops are extremely popular with both students and staff, therefore spaces are expected to fill up quickly, so please act swiftly to avoid disappointment.
