We have a track record of working with inspirational small and medium sized employers as well as major corporates in and around London. We also source strong, professional volunteers to expand young people’s understanding and experience of the breadth of careers on offer today.
Today, 46% of London employers offer work experience and 20% offer ‘work inspiration’ – something we call ‘industry insight’. We want to increase these figures and enable more businesses to take part. Offering just a couple of hours insight to business and employment decisions enables young people to understand more clearly where their talent will fit.
Our mantra was let's work them hard, involve them, but also roll out the red carpet for them - we wanted them to understand just how valuable they can be to an environment like ours.
