The National Council for Work Experience runs an annual award to promote the importance of great work experience opportunities. If you are looking for some inspiration, find out who the winners are here.
Employers will want to see evidence of work experience and skills on your CV or application, to prove to them that you have the ability to do the job. Gaining a combination of skills through extra-curricular activities or volunteering, and some experience of a commercial workplace or responsibility within an organisation will really help you present yourself to future employers. It will also help you decide which job areas and working cultures are right for you.
