Prospects in the City

Real experience with real employers

Prospects in the City provides young people and education professionals with unique opportunities to gain a direct insight into the multitude of careers in the City of London and UK cities. We aim to inform, motivate and raise aspirations for those considering careers in sectors which are traditionally difficult to enter and enable students to acquire valuable work experience tailored to their individual interests.

Through giving students access to leading organisations, they benefit from first hand, accurate and up to date careers and labour market information to improve vocational knowledge. Throughout the year we run accompanied workshops, interactive walks and City Summer Schools delivered by qualified practitioners in their fields, professional bodies and recent graduates to provide tasters in: 

  • Finance
  • Medicine
  • IT
  • Creative media
  • TV and radio
  • Law
  • Accountancy
  • Travel and tourism.

We have close links with major institutions and employers in the City with past visits including Bank of England, Deloitte, Royal Courts of Justice, Bloomberg, IPC Media, and Eversheds.

Thanks to our extensive knowledge of job vacancies and the skills required by City firms, we provide a number of professional employment services for those seeking work in the City including Square Mile Jobs on behalf of City of London Corporation. We also provide specialist support such as redundancy counselling for staff.
