INSIGHT INTO_WEWORK

ABOUT THE MENTORSHIP SCHEME_

This July, The Diana Award is partnering with WeWork to deliver a week of 30 work experience placements for young people between the ages of 16 and 18. Students will further their understanding of the world of work and provide valuable experiences through placement projects, workshops and guidance from industry professionals which will further their career aspirations.

Following an application process, students will be matched to a relevant WeWork member company which will then mentor, host and support them throughout the week of the 15th – 19th July.
The students will spend three days with their companies, and two days of workshops, as well as a traditional WeWork social breakfast and a graduation ceremony to end the week, with informal networking to land an internship or discuss next steps in their careers.

Placements include industries such as Finance, Tech, Management Consulting, Fashion, Ecommerce and many more. The week will be split between WeWork locations.

“WeWork has over 400,000 members within its community and an absolutely vast range of companies and jobs, many of which didn’t exist 10 or 20 years ago. We’re excited to be partnering with The Diana Award to expand our Mentoring programme that gives young people access to the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in the workplaces of the future. We have received such a high demand for the programme since it launched last year that we are bringing it back this year with two new cohorts across London.”
Anthony Yazbeck, COO of WeWork Europe
