Urban Synergy delivered another Talent Accelerator at the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) in October sponsored by Catherine Johnson, General Counsel at LSEG.
19 students aged 16-24 from schools, colleges, sixth forms and universities (some working full-time seeking apprenticeships) took part in the 2 day programme. Over 2 days, 30 LSEG employees volunteered their time to take part in some of the interactive activities to help build students’ soft skills, knowledge of the workplace and provide top career tips.
- 100% of the students rated the event 5/5
- 100% of the students learned about a career they were not aware of before
- 100% of the students felt more confident about their future
‘I made many new friends, learnt about various career pathways and got an opportunity to network with so many professionals. It improved my confidence.’
‘I honestly couldn’t be prouder of the work Urban Synergy are doing. You are god sent and have helped me in thinking differently about how to attain my ultimate goal.’
Thank you to Catherine Johnson and all of the LSEG volunteers who welcomed the students and gave up their time to help make the workshops successful.
