Previous participants in the scheme have enjoyed the absorbing nature of the programme; our friendly team offers a personal touch that can help you pinpoint the useful skills to be a success in the placement scheme and beyond. We’re a close-knit team, with plenty of opportunities for mentoring and training support. 

We’re looking for highly creative and proactive candidates who are looking for a highly engaging and exciting placement role. You’ll receive a living wage of £9.90 an hour, whilst you enjoy a stepping stone to further roles in project management. You’ll learn how to apply the real-life skills needed to discover exciting pathways in your field.
