Bank of England Work Experience
Alumnus Melvin Lopez-Corleone starts Work Experience Programme at The Bank of England
We were delighted to be contacted by CTK Alumni Melvin Lopez-Corleone, who now works at The Bank of England (BoE) as the Senior Regulatory Technology Specialist.
Melvin works within the Innovation area of the Prudential Regulation Authority. The division is at the forefront of researching, applying and delivering advanced technology focused solutions. This includes leading the implementation of Regulatory Technology (RegTech) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) initiatives with a focus on regulation and supervision.
If that wasn’t enough, Melvin has now created a paid Work Experience Programme which he is very passionate about and is eager to introduce to CTK students. The programme, starting in January 2022 aims to give 10 students the opportunity to learn new skills and take on a 4-week paid role in a highly prestigious setting.
With a focus on Business, Maths, Economics and IT students, the programme will include a year-long mentorship with a senior member from the BoE. The application process involves creating a short video, describing why they would make a good candidate for the programme.
Melvin will be reaching out to students via Teams in classes this week to speak to them in more-depth about the programme and urge them to complete their applications by the closing date of December 31st.
