  • On Wednesday 13 October, 5:00pm - 6:00pm    IBM will be hosting an evening event with some of the world’s top Business & Technology professionals. This is their first event of the new academic year and they don’t come around very often. Come and hear all about what it’s like working for one of the world’s largest tech companies. It’s open to all Y11, Y12 and Y13 students.

At IBM, work is more than a job — it's a calling. To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you've never thought possible. To lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world's most challenging problems.

Hear about some of the exciting projects they are working on as well as their school leaver opportunities, insight days and gap year placements.  If you’d like to apply to this event to find out more, please click on the application link below.

  • Virtual Work Experience Opportunities:
    Here’s a round-up of some notable (virtual) work experience opportunities accepting applications over Christmas!
    The idea is that students can lay the foundations now, by applying over the holidays - allowing them to go into the new year with opportunities already secured. This will ensure that even with all of the limitations in place right now, they are still taking steps to strengthen their career prospects and lay a rock-solid foundation, ready for when the current situation finally does pass. I know that students missing out on valuable experience is a major concern for many. Work experience can often be where students first interact with the areas they end up building their career around. That's why I think the following virtual work experience opportunities, all of which are online, could be really powerful and make the best of a bad situation. They can be completed at times that suit students and provide a certificate directly from the employer upon their completion (invaluable for CVs, cover letters, personal statements etc.)
