10,000 Black Interns

Our #10000BLACKINTERNS initiative partnership seeks to provide meaningful opportunities to black students across the UK, helping them kick start their careers in investment management and address under-representation in our industry.

We offer internships to black students seeking to learn about our industry first-hand, benefiting from the opportunity to develop their financial skills, soft skills and build a network of professionals and peers.

A key goal of this programme, previously known as #100BLACKINTERNS, is to develop a more diverse group of up-and-coming talent and contribute more widely to creating opportunities across our industry and more than 20 other sectors across the economy. The programme — recruiting annually — provides world-class training and development in addition to facilitating paid work experience.

upReach

upReach is a social mobility charity founded in 2012, delivering a tailored programme of 1-to-1 career support and opportunities to enable undergraduates from less-advantaged backgrounds to secure top jobs by supporting them to overcome the barriers to entry.
