Hey all :wave:

Here at TheSite towers we have two great digital opportunities especially for you! If you live in the Midlands, we've got the Ericsson Work Experience programme. If you're in London check out the 'Make the Web' days....

Ericsson Work Experience programme is a unique and exciting opportunity to get hands-on work experience in a large, multi-national company whilst gaining valuable experience of an innovative business environment and the work of the telecoms industry.

Ericsson are offering 12 young people (aged 18-25) from the Midlands a unique four-day work experience package, that includes three days at Ericsson’s offices working alongside engineers in the field and one day on a group ‘hack’ run by Freeformers.

What is a ‘hack’ day?
The hack day is an opportunity to bring you together with the brilliant brains at Freeformers, they’ll be sharing how to create your own website, become a Facebook developer and use HTML, CSS and Javascript. You’ll then work together, using the skills you’ve gained to come up with your own creative project.

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is interested in IT, software development, telecoms or technology/network engineering. If you want some work-based experience to kick-start your career, this is ideal for you!
