Communications consultancy launches virtual work experience for students
10 December 2020
Birmingham and Channel Islands communications consultancy Liquid has launched a series of virtual work experience sessions for sixth form and university students in February 2021.
The two sessions, ‘An Introduction to PR’ and ‘An Introduction to Social and Digital’, aim to support students from across the UK and the Channel Islands and allow them to gain valuable understanding and experience in the communications industry.
Endorsed by the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA), the sessions will be hosted virtually by Liquid’s junior team members in Birmingham. The team will provide participants with useful career insights; from what it’s like working in communications to how best to improve employability or join the profession.
The sessions will take place on 15th and 17th February, between 2pm and 4pm over Zoom, with space for 300 students to join each session to gain insight and to help navigate the challenges of gaining work experience during the current pandemic.
All students taking part will receive a certificate as proof of the experience.
Liquid CEO, Elisabeth Lewis-Jones, said: “We are very excited to be able to give up to 600 students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience remotely. As a company, we passionately believe in training and development and support school leavers and university students each year, through mentoring, placements and our own graduate recruitment programme, Source.
“We appreciate that the pandemic has made work experience difficult for many young people to develop their skills. This is our way of providing guidance and advice at such a crucial time in their career, as well as something tangible to put on their CV.”
Students can book their place on the work experience sessions via Eventbrite. Register for ‘An Introduction to PR’ here and ‘An Introduction to Social and Digital’ here.
