Social Mobility

Our Social Mobility Programme

Our first project partner is the Social Mobility Foundation. Through the support of our kind partners, we are now supporting a cohort of female A level students, on SMF's Aspiring Professionals Programme. Students receive ongoing practical support, including: university admission guidance, university visits, employability skills workshop, career insights, mentoring and internships at leading UK employers.

Bethany CityPress, Manchester

“I got to work on things for real clients and got an insight into what PR actually is. My supervisor and the office were really friendly and welcoming.” 

Meghan Weightmans, Liverpool

“The people were so helpful and genuinely cared about our happiness within the firm. It really helped me to have an insight into potential sectors I may want to go into in the future.” 

Lubna Siemens, Manchester

“I enjoyed experiencing the working environment at Siemens as it was much more relaxed that I imagined. The entire week has been very beneficial and I wish to thank all the staff who made it possible.”

Mary Byrom Street Chambers, Manchester

“I was able to shadow some of the best barristers in their respective fields and learn more about the kind of work a QC barrister would do that’s different from junior barristers.”

Sarah St. James Hospital, Leeds

“The best thing was watching the bronchoscopy and seeing the anatomy of the lungs through a camera.”

Misbah Grant Thornton, Manchester

“From start to finish the staff at Grant Thornton were extremely warm and welcoming. I was free to ask any questions or queries however silly they may be! Anyone that I talked to made me feel valuable and much more than just a summer intern. The fact that I had practical work for each sector of accountancy will make me stand out from other applicants.”
