WKC have partnered with Investment 20/20 to help learners explore careers opportunities in the investment banking world.

 

The Investment 20/20 scheme offers jobs across all of the specialist areas in the investment industry depending on where your interests and skills are.

This year, Manuela from BTEC L3 Business was part of the Investment 20/20 college programme, where she got to attend employer masterclasses and work shadow at top investment banks.
