Date: Friday 24 January 2020

On 22nd Jan, University College Isle of Man, Employed.im and Chamber of Commerce hosted a ‘Bridge the Gap’ event.

The purpose of the event was to showcase the workplace opportunities that are available to employers along with illustrating the benefits work experience has for both the employer and the student.

To highlight the wide variety of work placement opportunities for employers UCM have developed a simple guide which showcases the different opportunities ranging from Year 10 all the way up to Postgraduate. This guide is designed to help employers make informed decisions around taking on a work experience student including the benefits, time commitment, when to apply and key contact.

The guide can be found via the UCM website

At the event employed.im launched their ‘Work Experience Ambassador’ scheme.

Employed.im will be seeking Companies and individuals to champion work experience:

• Within their own companies/organisations
• Amongst their networks of organisations and individuals
• This logo can be added to emails and LinkedIn profiles

If companies would like to be ambassadors contact Lorna (Lorna.Trevethan@pdms.com) or Helen (Helen.Hillier@pdms.com) at Employed.im for more information.
