Goldman Sachs has taken on ten young Londoners as the first investment bank to take part in the Evening Standard’s jobless campaign.

The year long apprenticeship, which will start ‘as soon as possible’ will see each apprentice work at Goldman Sachs for 30 hours a week, earning a living wage of £8.30 an hour, whilst also receiving one day a week off-site to train for an NVQ at City Gateway.

Michael Sherwood, co-chief executive of the bank, said: ‘As a large firm with significant resources, we believe it is right that we step up and commit to taking apprentices.’ He admitted that they usually have a tough recruitment process, only employing high achieving graduates, but said that they thought ‘apprentices who come through their [City Gateway’s] rigorous training programme will do well at Goldman Sachs.’
