A photo from the My Big Career day we were invited to at Cardinal Pole School in Hackney on Friday 31 January. We were bowled over by the talent and motivation of the students we met. They are clearly going to go far. At the end of February f1 will go back there to speak to 60 students thinking of a career in business and marketing communications. Then we’ll organise summer work placements for some of them with our clients, in order to introduce them to companies and people who can help them navigate their path into the industry and, hopefully, offer them jobs when they have finished university.

f1 is committed to social mobility and to opening up entry level opportunities for people from every background. It’s part of our manifesto. There is much talk about social mobility and the great thing about My Big Career is that it’s doing something concrete and positive about it. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg’s Business Compact has now signed up 150 businesses also committed to social mobility. Through careers advice from the commercial sector My Big Career helps open students’ eyes to professions they might not have considered. f1’s involvement is to help connect students with companies that can help them with work placements and potential careers.

My Big Career needs more employers to go and talk to sixth form students about what they do, to explain their companies and their professions. We’re on board. Are you?
