“New graduates facing the toughest labour market for 75 years can increasingly turn to innovative schemes set up to redirect them into areas of need.”
“Last month the charity upReach set up Assessed Virtual Internship, a programme to help graduates whose career opportunities have disappeared.”
“John Craven, the chief executive of upReach, said: “We created our programme at record speed to tackle the dearth of opportunities brought about by covid. We have offered the chance to apply to over 1,000 young people and had hundreds of applications already.”
upReach’s four-week programmes are delivered by volunteers from employers including Allen & Overy, the civil service fast stream, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, McKinsey and Slaughter and May, as well as team members from upReach itself.”
