18th November 2021 — The ‘Cowgills Future Stars’ programme offers an in-depth insight into the world of business and finance. The placement runs for between three and four weeks during the school holidays, and the pair of successful applicants have the opportunity to attend meetings, complete project work and shadow senior managers. They spend time in each department, gaining valuable experience of audit, tax, business recovery, wealth management, corporate finance and support services and marketing.
This year’s ‘Cowgills Future Stars’ Olivia and Rishi are both currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Physics and hope to study Economics after completing their A Levels. They are very grateful for the opportunity that Cowgills offers to Bolton School Sixth Form students in the form of the programme.
Rishi said that there are currently few opportunities for work experience because of the impact of Covid, and so many people are applying to a small number of places. The opportunity to join the ‘Cowgills Future Stars’ programme is therefore a real benefit. No doubt the experience will give both Olivia and Rishi a great overview of business and finance to take forward with their studies.
The ‘Cowgills Future Stars’ programme was established for Bolton School Sixth Form students in 2015.
