Content Marketing Manager
at Springpod in London
A few years ago, we recognised both the need for employer engagement within schools and a careers platform to help combat the national skills shortage within the STEM industries. We’re pretty good at multitasking, so we thought we’d do something about them both.
We grafted and created Springpod, a platform connecting school students with companies within the science, tech, engineering and maths industries and building those all-important bridges between schools and employers.
We now work with the leading tech and engineering firms in the UK, as well as schools across the length and breadth of the UK, helping thousands of students secure their dream career every year.
We’re up and running at the early stages of our journey. But what’s our long-term mission and goal? We aim high and want to enable every student in the UK to connect with an employer so they can achieve their dream destination, all before they leave school.
