Working in the City

Hosted by companies across London's financial districts, Working in the City gives students an insight into the world of work, the myriad careers available, and how to get there.

The programme is in two parts; to get the full benefit we recommend that students attend both sessions.

Part one helps to dispel myths and build key knowledge about working in the financial, professional and related services sectors. Students will be given the chance to interview employees about their careers and gain a useful and realistic understanding of the roles available, skills needed and what it takes to be successful.

Part two focuses on developing students’ self-awareness, strengthening their employability skills and preparing them for interview processes of the future. Students take a closer look at their skills and attributes through developing their personal brand and thinking about how they can market themselves to employers. The tables are turned as we are joined by employee volunteers who interview students and provide valuable feedback for the future.
