A hub for young talent

 

At Seriously, we are active champions of students and young people who want to gain hands on work experience as well as generating the employability skills needed to secure inspiring and meaningful employment.

We’re dedicated to being a hub for budding young talent – giving people their first taste of the workplace to find out what makes the heart of a PR agency beat.  We want to give job opportunities to bright, enthusiastic people coming out of college and university, in situations where it’s usually tricky to get an interview even, because you’re right at the start of your career.

We do this in a number of ways including mentoring through Working Knowledge, taking on work experience students, offering graduate and internship placements, and giving talks at local colleges and schools.  Want us to come and speak about working in a PR agency?  Get in touch!

And, if you would like to find out more about our work and approach to the young workforce please do get in touch.

**COMING SOON**

In 2016 we will be starting work on a website designed specifically to support students as they leave education and venture into the workplace by connecting them with businesses who are dedicated to offering meaningful work experience placements. The Tinder of work experience!  Our mission is to ensure that no student is just with ‘what’s left’ – a placement they’re not inspired or excited by.  We’ll keep you updated and you can also follow our progress on Facebook.

UPDATE!!  We are excited to announce that in June 2016 we won £1000 in funding to kick start this project with Oxfordshire Soup, supported by The Learning Ladder and Hendry Performance Development.

You can now download our sponsorship pack too – please support our invaluable venture!

More coming soon!
