Urban Synergy with Goldman Sachs delivered another “Think Further” Academic Seminar to year 9 students at Deptford Green school. The group from the Community Teamworks talked to the students about the diversity of opportunities with Goldman Sachs and the banking and investment industry. After a short presentation, the students were split into smaller groups to talk with the team about career paths, writing CVs, work experience and raising aspirations.
Our thanks to all the Goldman Sachs Community Team Works and the staff at Deptford Green school for helping deliver this inspirational event.
