Work experience in top companies

GoThinkBig.co.uk which was launched yesterday, hopes to offer up to 30,000 work experience and skills opportunities for 14-25-year-olds in the UK over the next three years.

The companies O2 and Bauer Media who have jointly created the website are asking other employers to make their own work skills opportunities available through the new scheme.

GoThinkBig is stressing that these do not need to be solely the traditional two week work experience slot as it recognises in tough circumstances these may not be the only solution. Other relevant opportunities include offering young people other opportunities such as volunteering, work skills days and project funding.

From November 2012, GoThinkBig will be staffed by a new team of young people recruited to develop and maintain the programme and GoThinkBig online platform – supported and mentored by Bauer Media and O2.
