Are you taking your son, niece or a client’s child on work experience this summer? Could you offer an extra placement to a young person without connections?

Our One +1 campaign makes it easy for professionals to offer an additional work experience placement to a bright student without connections. If you are arranging a work experience placement for a friend or relative this summer, an SMF student could be their +1. We are also working with firms such as KPMG and Schroders who have incorporated One +1 into their own work experience policies.

If you work in Banking & Finance, Engineering, Science or Medicine, and could take a sixth form student on work experience, we’d love to hear from you. We work with students in seven target cities: Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Newcastle.
