CloserStill Media has offered graduates a kick-start in their events industry career with an eight-week paid work experience programme.
The graduate bootcamp, which launches today, 2 July, will welcome 16 successful graduates across four business areas: telemarketing, sales, marketing and operations.
Based in CloserStill’s head office in Kensington, London, the eight-week programme aims to gives graduates insight into the world of exhibitions and a chance to develop skills for their futures as event professionals.
CloserStill said at the end of the bootcamp each graduate will get an oppurtunity to interview for a permanent role. 48% of the company’s UK workforce have started their careers as part of a graduate programme.
Alexia Maycock, CMO of CloserStill, said: “Covid-19 has impacted graduates job opportunities and we built this programme to develop their skills to support their future in the events sector. A huge welcome to everyone starting with us today.”
Stephanie James, HR Director at CloserStill said: “The new graduate programme has created excitement within CloserStill and we look forward to seeing the achievements throughout the eight week programme.”
