MissionCX is one of almost 40 employers offering motivated and ambitious young people across Cumbria, opportunities to learn about leadership and careers within the county through Dream Placement 2023.

Teenagers have applied to take part in the unique programme that combines face-to-face contact with online engagement to build confidence, develop skills and offer workplace insights.

It also offers vital opportunities for MissionCX and other host partners to engage with 16-18 year olds and showcase the fantastic opportunities here in Cumbria.

On December 13th shortlisted teenagers will attend a selection event which will be held at Energus, to meet host partners for a day of interviews, business problem-solving exercises and networking.

MissionCX is one of the Cumbrian partners helping to fund the programme, organised by the Centre for Leadership Performance in collaboration with businesses and educators across Cumbria. Host partners offer a week’s Dream Placement over the February half-term break in 2023.
