As part of LocatED’s Corporate Social Responsibility commitments we have set up a Young Persons’ Programme to provide internships and work experience at LocatED.
LocatED is committed to offering work experience and placement opportunities throughout the year, to help young people to experience working within the property sector.
The unpaid work experience programme is for a maximum of 2 weeks, with a tailored timetable which will cover the relevant areas of the business. During the entirety of the work experience period LocatED will reimburse any business-related expense including travel to and from the office.
For more information on work experience opportunities, please get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
“On my first day at LocatED I was introduced to the team and given several inductions by business support, the technical and planning team, the finance team and Michael Wu from Legal. All of which were a helpful insight to the company.
I was included in meetings, which although seemed very complicated, gave me an understanding on how business meetings are conducted. I was also taken to the cross collaboration workshop and awards ceremony, and on a site visit to LSA school which were great experiences.
The free lunch sessions and presentations were a treat.”
Lorenzo Hyat’s Story
“I found my time at LocatED was very insightful. I learnt a lot about property and the different sectors within it and loved the experience of what it is like to work in a firm.
LocatED offered a variety of activities for me to experience such as site visits, meetings and introductions to several of the roles needed in the company. I received a lot of career advice and support from the staff.
Thank you for having me at LocatED.”
Desha Wallace’s Story
“My work experience at LocatED was amazing. The team were very welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable and able to make the most of my time there. When I attended meetings, the purpose was explained.
I enjoyed my time shadowing the marketing team – writing up social media posts and organising event collateral. CV screening with HR was extremely beneficial too, they even helped me improve my own!
The lunch and learn seminar presented by the Department for Education Design Team was thought-provoking. I learnt a range of things in this placement – the importance of teamwork and the act of relying on each other to complete tasks efficiently. I am really grateful for this opportunity, thank you!”
