Talent Programmes

We understand the challenges for businesses in reaching your future workforce, and the difficulties for young people in finding the right career.

So we create bespoke talent programmes that solve these problems.  For schools, we help your Sixth Form students gain valuable insight into the world of work, identify careers and meet employers they’d love to work for.  For businesses, we can help you to connect with the future workforce and showcase your organisation and career opportunities to this smart audience.

We work with our extensive school networks to screen and select motivated, aspirational students looking at their career options after education.  This ensures a targeted approach delivering maximum impact for students, and enables us to connect businesses with the young people you could recruit.

Our capabilities include:

Career insight programmes engaging a screened audience of students aspiring to a career in your sector.  We help students learn about your organisation and great career opportunities, and connect you to the future talent your business is looking to meet.

Assessment Centres helping school leavers learn about your recruitment process, meet and learn from your people, and potentially join your business.

Work experience programmes developed collaboratively to deliver inspiring and authentic experiences of the workplace.  We can showcase your organisation as a great employer and help students gain valuable experience that challenges their perceptions of the world of work. These programmes also help you to build a future talent pipeline for your business.

Some of our recent programmes:

Discover M&S.COM

We worked with Marks & Spencer’s digital stores to create Discover M&S.COM, an immersive talent and innovation programme helping sixth form students access digital careers and build their digital skills by working on key challenges for one of Britain’s leading online retailers.  M&S wanted to connect with future digital talent from diverse backgrounds; digital natives who could provide fresh insights and perspectives on the retailer’s digital offering.  We delivered our first programme with M&S in October 2015, with 50 students across London collaborating with professionals across M&S.COM.  You can see more in our video highlights:


We worked with Bird & Bird, one of Europe’s leading law firms, to design and deliver a bespoke career insight programme engaging Sixth Form students in the firm’s local communities.  Discover Bird & Bird gave students a unique insight into the legal sector and the core skills vital for success, and emphasised the alternative careers in the profession so students could make more informed choices about their future in law.  The programme connected Bird & Bird with a screened group of aspirational young people and enhanced their employer brand with this hard-to-reach audience.
