Home STUDENTS Apprenticeships Business Services Programme



Be the employee that employers value

This is a one-year programme that is bespoke to Gowling WLG. During this year you become a business professional. It’s all very much hands-on and about honing your skills on the job.

You first spend six months with one of our teams and then six with another. You can choose from: Business Information Systems (IT); Business Development and Corporate Communications; Compliance; Finance; Human Resources; and Operations.

This experience will put you well on the way to pursuing a career in marketing or finance, or becoming a technology expert or operations manager.


AstraZeneca, Battersea Power Station, Center Parcs, Coca Cola and Aston Martin – to name but a few of our clients. Discover more about what we do for these household names.

What you get

Our Business Services programme is delivered in conjunction with BMet, an outstanding institution that works with world-leading employers.

Once you’ve completed the 12-month programme, you receive a Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration. And you get a City and Guilds accredited Business Administration Apprenticeship with an Institute of Leadership & Management Accreditation. Two for the price of one.

What that means

These qualifications mean you’re the employee that many employers value. That includes us, because hopefully the end of the programme doesn’t mean the end of our relationship.

Towards the final months of your apprenticeship we want to talk to you about your career, which could mean offering you a permanent role in one of our teams or a further apprenticeship to continue your studies.
