The City of Londons Lord Mayor David Lewis is appealing to law firms to give state school sixth formers the opportunity to gain work experience in the square-mile this summer.
The Lord Mayor, a former partner at Norton Rose, is asking law firms and insurance companies to offer placements to students from non-traditional backgrounds through the City Business Traineeship Scheme. The plea follows news that very few law firms are offering placements to such students.
Lewis said: The City needs a constant stream of new working talent to maintain its position as a global centre of business excellence. Our existing firms are aware that they need to tap into all methods of recruitment to ensure that they acquire the highest standard of graduates, but legal firms are currently missing a vital opportunity to enhance their resources.
The scheme, which is fully funded by the City of London Corporation, offers around 80 high-achieving students from state schools in the City fringe boroughs paid placements of between six to 13 weeks over the summer with businesses in the legal and financial services sectors. Additionally, over 250 more students take part in various activities including CV and interview technique workshops.
