More about

Our alumni

Goldman SachsYou arrive, not knowing much about the area and not knowing anyone, and people support you, offer advice and make you feel welcome.

That never went away at Teesside. It wasn't a policy, it was just what we did. I'm lucky to have found a career at a company that operates in exactly the same way.

Michael Gillott, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs
