The Placement - Mountbatten Program

The Placement

Kickstart your global career

From scale-ups to Fortune 500 companies, we partner with leading host organizations in London, connecting them with bright international talent. Since our inception in 1984, we have matched more than 8,000 of our trainees with host organizations such as BlackRock, Citi Private Bank, Credit Suisse, HSBC, Thomson Reuters and more. Our trainees get the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a business environment, gaining critical international experience and exposure.

“I would not have got my current job if it had not been for the opportunities Mountbatten gave me. My company was impressed by my move to London, and work at a premier investment bank, right out of college.”
Martin Cebula, London Program, August 2015 Intake

Get ready for the future of work

Build your skills, network, resume and potential with practical training. You’ll undertake a full-time placement with a London based host organization in one of the following placement areas: finance, business operations, IT, marketing and communications, events and HR. You’ll access senior members of the London business community, develop your personal brand, and take the first steps to becoming a leader of tomorrow.

The Placement Process

We work with our host organizations to match the right candidates to their placement opportunities. Host organizations select who they would like to interview based on your resume and professional statement, so it’s important to sell yourself and demonstrate your transferable skills.

Selected for interview with a host organization? We’ll share the placement profile with you so you can prepare. You’ll need to identify clear examples from your experiences, showcasing those skills that are suitable to the business and the placement.

If you’re offered and accept a placement, we’ll coordinate your visa paperwork and prepare for your arrival in London.  With your visa in hand, you’re ready to start your 12 months in London!
