This summer thousands of students will be missing out on valuable work experience. Equally we know that start-ups and scale-ups will need extra hands to get through these challenging times.
Eagle Labs have partnered with Workfinder, a platform enabling you to organise valuable work placements remotely with motivated and skilled students from universities across the country.
Who is this for?
Ambitious start-ups and scale-ups looking to access motivated and skilled talent when you need it most.
This summer, run 2-4 week remote projects around activities that add real value to your business.
You are able to offer students from all backgrounds the opportunity to get valuable work experience at your business.
In turn you gain valuable resource, enabling you to complete projects so you can focus on what you do best... growing your business
How does it work?
The platform uses algorithmic matching to recommend your company to the most relevant students.
Workfinder then offers you support through full project briefs, online support, contract templates and certificates of achievement.
The platform is free to use up to the point of placement and if you make a placement it is simply £100+VAT per student.
We believe that this is a great opportunity for you to tap in to a pool of talent and that’s why we’re covering the placement fee for the first 50 confirmed placements in our network, limited to one placement per business.
Additional placements will be subject to a referral fee payable to ‘Workfinder Ltd’.
Sign up to Workfinder and start receiving applications from top undergraduates now.
"We strongly believe the experience was mutually beneficial as it gave us a rare insight into the minds and perspectives of young people today and how they interact with tech in their everyday lives."
- Jo Eckersley, CEO of Bubbl.
"Hosting work experience allowed for certain employees to step up into roles they normally don’t get to experience themselves, such as leadership and people management."
- Amanda Harvey, Marketing Manager at Silicon Reef (Member, Eagle Labs Bournemouth).
Workfinder’s mission is to democratise work experience by giving students, whatever their background, access to amazing companies through the app. In turn this will bridge the skills gap that many of UK’s businesses are facing by mobilising an untapped ambitious and talented workforce.
We exist to make work experience easy and valuable for both host and applicant.
