Nottingham-based social enterprise launches new paid online work-experience programme

June 16th 2020

by Creative Quarter

Collaborative Future has launched a new, innovative 6-month programme convening a community of small businesses, freelancers and young people to work and learn together.

Work Opportunities

“The flexibility of the placements is not just about making the scheme more accessible to young adults, we’ve also designed it with small businesses in mind. It is difficult for small business owners to access more traditional internship or apprenticeship programmes, particularly when they require a full-time commitment. Our scheme allows businesses to gain access to interns as and when they have suitable projects. And when our interns aren’t working with your business they’ll be gaining more experience and skills through working with other complimentary businesses who are part of the scheme.”

“As a small business that has been operating for less than a year we aren’t currently in a position to employ anyone, but we have ambitions to grow. Besides being a good way to support young talent, the Collaborative Future placement programme was a chance for us to get a feel for employing someone.”
