What are you doing to attract the best A-level and graduate applicants? Many talented students are by-passing the tech industry because their first impression of work is the Trident work experience scheme.
Every year over 1000 14/15 year old students are placed by Trident, of which, around 150 are looking for a creative tech related experience. Very few are able to have the experience of a tech placement because not enough employers are offering students the opportunity. This affects their perception and understanding of how feasible a modern career in technology is. There is no doubt that talented people will look at their alternatives from A-level onwards.
If you want to inspire talent from the very beginning of their journey then get in touch to offer a Trident work placement.
Placements could be anywhere where creativity and skills work together in technology – for instance coding; development and IT and product or service design. Placements are for 2-3 weeks, coordinated by the Careers Jersey Trident team.
