Supporting Apprenticeships in London
In October 2012, a group of young adults embarked on a journey – joining Goldman Sachs for an apprenticeship in our London offices. A year later, they have gained experience, new skills and confidence, and are ready for the exciting opportunities ahead.
Goldman Sachs was the first business to support Ladder for London, the London Evening Standard’s campaign to help unemployed young adults into apprenticeships.
Ten apprentices joined Goldman Sachs on October 31, 2012. In addition to the one-year apprenticeship, our apprentices received a class-based training program designed to help them develop the professional skills required in the workplace. They worked across the Technology, Operations, Human Capital Management, Corporate Services and Real Estate, Investment Banking and the Securities divisions.
In the year since the Evening Standard launched its campaign, the working lives of over 1100 young adults have been transformed through newly-created apprenticeship opportunities. These have been provided by over 400 London enterprises - ranging from PricewaterhouseCoopers and Tottenham Hotspur football club, to the Royal Opera House and Westminster’s House of Commons. Goldman Sachs is proud to have played its part in the initiative.
In collaboration with Hackney Community College, Goldman Sachs will welcome a new class of 10 apprentices on November 4, 2013. In addition to the previously participating divisions, Global Investment Research and the Investment Management Division will also offer apprenticeship places.
