An investment bank of great power and reach, covering finance, advice and trading. This is an IT apprenticeship, so not obviously in the mainstream of GS's activities (and maybe a hard place to reach that mainstream from), but so much of GS's business is now based on creating and maintaining leadership in IT that this will be a superb place to begin an IT career, with centre-stage, cutting edge applications, and a good degree to boot.

If you have ambitions to move into their mainstream consulting business, make sure that you understand what this takes: their recruitment into this area is very Oxbridgey, and we are not clear how an IT apprentice could come up-to-status.
