Network N are a Bath-based fast-growing media business focusing on gamers, gear and e-sports, reaching over 60m+ unique users per month across a network of websites. Their vision is to create better channels to target gamers globally across owned media and partners.
Network N are keen to work with schools in the local area and have kindly offered us two work experience placements (WEX).
As preparation for this, two personnel from Network N came into school to work with nine year 10 students who had expressed an interest in a WEX with them. Students were invited to attend a 2 hour workshop which covered writing a CV and cover letter as well as general interview skills.
Students were then given the two WEX job descriptions and invited to apply for the position. Two weeks later, Network N returned and interviewed each student.
Network N were very impressed with our students and decided to offer five work placements, rather than the original two. These were awarded to: Arlo Radcliffe and Ben Andrews (in the Operations Department) and Noah Turner, Riley Ashdown and George Thompson (in the Publishing department). We hope that the skills that all students have learnt will be useful to them in the future.
We are enormously appreciative to Network N for their time, interest and commitment to our year 10 students and look forward to continuing this working partnership.
