upReach are delighted to announce a new partnership with Nomura to further extend the charity’s support for undergraduates from less-advantaged backgrounds to help them access top graduate jobs.
upReach works closely with high-potential undergraduates on a 1-to-1 basis, providing a personalised programme of support to help them develop their employability skills and build their network through skills workshops, work experience events, mentoring programmes and Insight Events with its Partner Employers.
This new partnership with Nomura, who share upReach’s belief in equal access to careers regardless of social background, will aim to help these undergraduates expand their career knowledge and networks in the banking sector, with the long-term goal of advancing social mobility within the financial industry. Through the new partnership with upReach, Nomura will provide exclusive opportunities for undergraduates enrolled in the upReach programme.
John Craven, CEO of upReach, has said, “I’m delighted Nomura has become upReach’s latest corporate partner, and am very much looking forward to working with an organisation that shares and supports our long-term goals.”
