London, Friday 13th – South Bank University Sixth Form (SBUSixth) students had a memorable experience this week as they embarked on a journey into the heart of Bloomberg’s state-of-the-art offices located in the bustling city of London. This visit provided a unique opportunity for our Year 13 business students to explore the myriad of apprenticeships the global financial data giant has to offer.
Bloomberg, primarily recognised for its financial data specialisation, unfolded a panorama of opportunities that left our students enlightened. Beyond the financial realm, they were introduced to an array of exciting entry points ranging from broadcast production, project management, human resources, to innovative areas such as infrastructure technology, digital solutions, and audio-visual roles.
The afternoon commenced with an engaging introduction about Bloomberg, detailing its operations and influential impact in the global market. Taking the enlightenment a notch higher, a specialist from the financial markets division shed light on how Bloomberg assists its vast clientele.
However, the highlight of the day was undeniably the panel discussion. Current Bloomberg apprentices shared their personal experiences, offering SBUSixth students a genuine glimpse into the life of an apprentice at Bloomberg. The students gained insights on balancing work, the unique aspects of their roles, and the enriching journey of being part of such a renowned organisation.
The day concluded with an invaluable session on Bloomberg’s recruitment process, equipping our students with the knowledge and motivation to kickstart their application journey.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the Bloomberg apprenticeship team. Their efforts in offering such an enlightening experience have undoubtedly highlighted Bloomberg’s commendable approach, not only in the commercial realm but also in its philanthropic endeavours. It’s safe to say our students left feeling inspired, informed, and eager to take on the challenges of the future.
