Simon Veasey writes:
One of the USE IT! project outcomes that we most want to focus on over the next few months is offering work experience places in social enterprises for local people in the USE-IT! area.
iSE and the USE-IT! partners are looking for social enterprises in Birmingham that can offer local unemployed people the opportunity to sample working in an organisation with a strong social mission.
Your placement offer can be as short as a day or as long as a week or anywhere in between.
The process is simple. ISE just needs a few words about what you will be expecting people to do and we will do the rest, matching individuals up with organisations.
People on placements will be prepared and supported by Birmingham Chamber. If you can offer an opportunity or want more information please contact Simon Veasey on 0798 355 9266 or send mail.
USE IT! is delivered through a partner network including iSE, Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, University of Birmingham, Health Exchange CIC, Co-op Futures, Localise WM, Citizen Coaching CIC and Smethwick Can, and has been facilitated by Birmingham City Council.
