Any leads for Work Experience in Investment Banking!


Recommended Posts

Hi, my son is at Kingsdale and next September has the chance to do 2 weeks work experience. He is studying for GCSE Economics and is keen to learn more about the world of Investment Banking. Does anyone have any leads/contacts suggestions or advice for trying to get a placement.

Understandably most of their programmes are for graduates and above. He will be 15yrs.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.

get in touch with the banks directly.

I found this. It might give you some thoughts.

I would just get my son to call them, find out who to contact and them email/ phone them directly - send in a cv - what he's interested, what he does outside school etc etc. what he's hoping to gain - what he'd like to do in teh future, what drives him etc.

If nothing happens, contact them again, thank them and say you'll try again when he's in Y13....

It's competitive.

also don't let him get too disillusioned if they say no - unless they have a designated scheme it might be logistically difficult for them to take him -at my work we have very strict rules on when we have u16s doing work experience - in terms of what they can do, who they can go to meetings with etc from a child protection perspective.

    • Is your objection to the spelling of through, or to the whole phrase (which I think is useful)?
    • Might it be a good idea to contact the Royal Opera House, if Robin Lee appears to work there? He probably won't see a post on here?
    • Would recommend Hussein. He’s done a cracking job on three of our rooms and we’ve booked him to do two more. He’s polite, hard working and turns up on time. He also gave us some good advice about finishes and options. He communicates clearly, so you know what’s happening and he was competitively priced. Looking forward to him working his magic on our next two rooms. Thanks Hussein!! 
    • Crikey. Well as I was inside the house,  I only saw it through the glass in my front door, so probably it wasn't strictly "ball lightning" as such. It certainly wasn't moving about!  And if it struck Alleyn's, it can't have been in two places at once. But as I said, it "looked like" there was a huge ball of light outside in the road. I was very glad I wasn't standing outside, put it like that 😂 My partner heard the bang in Surrey Quays!
