GE in the UK is thrilled to offer a one-week Virtual Work Experience to 50 young people from across the UK from years 9-11 (Scotland S3 – S5).

During the week of 4-8 July 2022, you will build your employability skills by taking part in workshops such as:

Writing a great CV and preparing for an interview
Developing personal branding and communication techniques
Preparing and giving a presentation at the end of the week

You will also get to know the aviation, digital, power, renewable energy and healthcare sectors through speed networking sessions with volunteers, talks from our early careers teams and other information sessions.

During a week-long project, you will discover the Lean 5S principles, used across our business. You will be challenged to make your morning routine 20% more efficient, so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy!

You will have the chance to reflect on your personal development throughout the process, through group mentoring (according to your career interests). Sessions will run from 9.30am until 1.00pm each day, with a 30-minute break. Our VWEX is accredited at Industrial Cadets Bronze Level – so you can include it within your personal statement and on your CV.

When applying, answer the following questions:

  • Entrepreneur: If you could go back in time and be the person who invented something we use today, what would it have been and why?
  • What would you like to get out of this virtual work experience?
