The Placement

Kickstart your global career

From scale-ups to FTSE 100 companies, we work in partnership with some of New York’s most exciting companies, connecting them with the brightest international talent. Since our inception in 1984, we have matched more than 7,000 of our trainees with companies such as BlackRock, British Airways, Citi, Fever Tree, HSBC, Institutional Investor, Thomson Reuters and more. Our trainees get the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a leading business and shape a global resume.

“Being able to train at my host organization and having their name on my resume has opened a lot of doors now that I am back living in the UK.”

Tom Simpson, New York Program, August 2014 Intake

Get ready for the future of work

Build your skills, network, resume and potential with practical training. You’ll be given placements with real responsibility ranging across finance, business operations, marketing and communications, events and HR. You’ll access senior members of the New York business community, develop your personal brand, and take the first steps to becoming a leader of tomorrow.

The Placement Process

We work with our partner companies to match the right candidates to their placement. Our partners select who they would like to interview based on your resume, so make sure you’re selling yourself in the right way.

Given an interview? Now what? Read over your placement spec, do as much research on the business as you can, and prepare to match your skills to the placement. At this stage it’s in your hands to turn your dream of 12-months in NYC into a reality.

Once you’re offered a placement by one of our partners you’re officially moving to NYC for the year! We’ll coordinate your visa paperwork and prepare for your arrival in New York City.
