Internships and work experience

mutually beneficial opportunities

Work experience programmes provide a mutually beneficial way for people to get valuable work experience and your business to get fresh ideas and potentially new team members.

Internship programmes are win-win: the intern gets valuable work experience and exposure to the industry, as well as providing your business with assistance and new ideas. Internships can be paid or unpaid, and the timeframe varies.

Community open days are a good way to introduce your business to a large number of people at once, including showcasing the different roles and opportunities available.
