Work Experience Guide for Young People
The majority of teens in the UK are encouraged to do work experience in year 10 or 11. This work experience guide is to give teens and employers an insight into working life and also what it is like having a young person around. It also allows teens to explore their strengths and weaknesses within their aspired career industry.
This week UK Kiosks have had the pleasure of having Evelyn from Droitwich Spa High School. Evelyn has an interest in administration, customer service and marketing. Therefore, she wanted to be based in an office environment. UK Kiosks was perfect for her to learn about multi-functional business practices.
Her week started by sitting with members of the team, to learn and understand their role in the business. Firstly, she sat with Jacob, who works in Sales and Marketing. He taught her constructing emails, taking customer calls and orders, planning social media content and sales reports. Evelyn then moved on to Accounts, where she sat with Gillian to learn about invoicing, business goals and objectives, VAT and how many people have important roles to make businesses run smoothly.
Below is a work experience guide for employers to think about…
Overall the week was successful and Evelyn left with a lot of knowledge about how a small business operates. She has left this experience with a good insight into what working life is like and what tools she can use to start her first job.
