#10000 Black Interns Programme
Whitehelm Capital is proud to be supporting the #10000BlackInterns programme in the UK. The initiative has been started to transform the horizons and prospects of young black people in the United Kingdom by offering paid work experience across a wide range of industries, as well as world-class training and development. For the next five years the programme will offer 2000 internships a year to black students and recent graduates across 24 sectors including investment management.
As part of the programme, each summer we will host a six week internship for a black student or recent graduate to give them a valuable insight into investment management and to equip them with the skills required to excel in the industry. To find out more about the programme, including how to apply, go to the website: BLACK INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME | 10000BLACKINTERNS
