Risk free placements or work trials for potential employees who are grateful for the opportunity.
Could you provide a work experience placement or supported work trial for a young person we mentor?
Partnering with local businesses enables us to facilitate short-term work experience placements or work trials.
Offering a placement is a great opportunity for the business provider as well as the young person:
- Find potential members of staff. You could treat the placement as a risk-free trial period in which to establish whether the participant would be a suitable employee.
- Management opportunities. It can give your staff the chance to develop their skills in training, mentoring and supervision.
- Help to up-skill a new generation of workers. It can sometimes be hard to find young employees with even basic work skills and, similarly, young unemployed people find a lack of understanding of the working world a significant barrier to finding a job. Work experience can benefit both parties.
