Invest Ashfield & Mansfield - The area for growth

Recent graduates who want to further their career prospects can apply for paid work placements with local businesses in Ashfield and Mansfield.

We are looking for recent graduates for the Graduates into Enterprise scheme, which arranges six-month placements with local businesses.  Placements are available in a range of subject areas including marketing, IT, design, web/e-commerce, research and development and energy efficiency.

Graduates are paid a weekly training allowance of £267. Businesses benefit from the completion of projects that they would not otherwise have had the time or resources to do at a greatly subsidised cost.

Cllr Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration at Mansfield District Council, said: “These placement schemes are an excellent way for our talented graduates to gain paid experience, while at the same time helping to improve the performance and productivity of local businesses.”

Cllr Jim Aspinall, Portfolio Holder for Prosperity, Ashfield District Council, added: “It is becoming increasingly hard for young people to find work in the area in which they have studied but this scheme gives them that essential head start.”

The programme is delivered by the Ashfield and Mansfield Regeneration Service and supported by European Regional Development Funding.  View more information on Graduates into Enterprise.
