Communications consultancy Jericho Chambers (offices pictured) is to hold a summer work experience programme in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
The three-week programme, dubbed the Jericho WikiWorkLab, is for people aged 17 to 21 and will revolve around the subject of the future world of work.
It will take six people currently in their final two school years at A level; six currently at university; and six pursuing vocational or non-academic careers.
Participants will be tasked with producing and explaining ideas about the future of work, which will be published in the public domain in a format readily shareable with potential employers.
They will be informed by discussions, lectures and research trips (to organisations including Barclays, the Bank of England and Bounce Back, a social enterprise for ex-offenders).
Jericho describes the programme as “an ideal chance to investigate what work means academically before having to jump in to it”.
