Opportunity, London: WikiWorkLab, Jericho Chambers, CIPD

As part of our work experience programme, Jericho Chambers and the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) are looking for people to give their views on the future of work. Applications from people aged 16 to 21 are especially welcome, as these people are underrepresented in the debate.

Between 26th July and 11th August 2016, you will be involved in conversations with the people shaping future working models. You will be working together with MPs, business-leaders, academics and recruiters.

The work experience programme includes ‘research trips’ to a variety of companies and institutions, including Bank of England and Houses of Parliament.

Your voices will represent young people entering the world of work, forming an important part of a wider debate being organised by Jericho and CIPD.

We want to know your ideas for making the world of work a better place.

Working from Jericho Chambers’ offices in Clerkenwell, or CIPD offices in Wimbledon, at the end of the three weeks, you will present your thoughts in the form of a blogpost, video and short presentation to experts. Outputs will be published on a web platform. Authors of the best projects will have the opportunity to present their ideas at a Future of Work Big Tent event in October 2016.

Your ideas will be heard by a wide audience and are bound to impact the debate. The work you do can be shared with future employers.

Jericho Chambers will cover the cost of lunch and travel to and from our offices.
