Career Ready &
Silicon Valley Bank

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to kickstart a rewarding future.

And we’re proud to have worked with Silicon Valley Bank since 2019 to make this possible by boosting the social mobility of young people who face barriers in education and employment.

Together, we’ve provided young people with the mentoring and paid internships they need to develop new skills and grow in self-confidence.

And we’ve been able to add real business value to Silicon Valley Bank through early careers talent, employee wellbeing, and diversity and inclusion.

More than ever, we need to be agents of change by taking care of what matters. Through our Access to Innovation agenda, our partnership with Career Ready is helping to transform the lives of young people and introduce them to the innovation economy and the world of financial services.

We’re delighted to work in partnership with Silicon Valley Bank. Together we’re able to make a real difference to young lives and and transform their future aspirations. We’re bringing about change which will last for years to come.

Tokunbo Ajasa-Oluwa, Career Ready CEO

I had a fear of communicating with new people. I would prefer to listen and not take the initiative to speak. But working at Silicon Valley Bank and meeting with various people changed that all. Now I’m not afraid to take the initiative and I feel I have overcome my fear.
