What is an INSPIRE Work Placement?

An INSPIRE Work Placement is a six-week opportunity to gain employability skills and experience in the creative industries. The placement will consist of two weeks of employability training to help prepare you for work, followed by a four-week paid work placement with a leading employer. We are very pleased to announce that our first placements are with Centroid Motion Capture!

The two-weeks employability training is unpaid. During the four-week work placement you will work for 16 hours a week and be paid the London Living Wage. INSPIRE Work Placements are delivered by NextGen in partnership with The JGA Group.
