Emma Tiernan from Square 5 tells us about her journey from Graduate to Director...

 

 


Little did I know when I applied for the role of project co-ordinator at VEN Management Ltd in the summer of 2007, via Graduates Yorkshire, that within two years I would own the company!

We may just have the solution for you as we bring a series of workshops focused purely on helping you land that graduate role!  Taking feedback from the last workshop we've really tried to cut down on costs as much as possible.  We're delighted that we can now offer you a morning workshop for only £10!   In May we'll be running two workshops, one in Sheffield and Leeds.

Toast Bar in Leeds was the venue of choice for the business community of Yorkshire to celebrate the Yorkshire Internship Awards 2011.  It was a glittering event with over 100 people in attendance.   At a time when the news is awash with unpaid internships and youth unemployment it was a refreshing change to celebrate how, we in Yorkshire, are doing it right!

How social mobility isn’t so mobile any more

Created 22/04/2011 12:52 Last updated 12/12/2013 14:42

Social mobility has featured heavily in the news in the past couple of weeks with a strong focus on unpaid internships.  Here our CEO, Martin Edmondson gives us his view on the government's policy on social mobility.

 

Although it's good news that the government has announced proposals that actively look at addressing the challenges of social mobility, there's a ‘but' lurking, and it's a big but.
