SPACE-2 believes that work experience is a mutually beneficial opportunity for both our business and for the individual, but we don’t see it as just something that students should do – we equally embrace the concept of people looking to change careers, parents looking to gain insight into a new industry that fits in with childcare arrangements or looking to ease back into work after a career break.
“Spending 3 weeks with SPACE-2 on work experience as part of my degree course was an amazing experience. I have learnt a huge amount from the company, as it is very fluid and flexible to cater to individuals. My time with space-2 has been bespoke and my roles have been varied. From researching potential locations for London fashion week, to ensuring security for prop storage, and liaising with potential clients. I was fortunate enough to work alongside many of the SPACE-2 team, and I cannot thank everyone who has mentored me enough, as they have been so helpful and supportive.“
“In a week the working world became exciting and filled with opportunity. I’d never worked for a business before so my week with SPACE-2 provided me with an insight into how a business functioned. I discovered the importance of your relationship with your clients but also with each other. SPACE-2 is full on energy and creativity and I felt that my work was valued and appreciated. Knowing that my work may contribute to the development of a new film or photo-shoot was unbelievably exciting and motivating and the chance to be creative in my work was something very special to me. I left SPACE-2 feeling that there was somewhere I’d love to work in the future. I would relish the opportunity to return and I think SPACE-2 offered me something unique for my work experience where I learnt so much and was also able to put back into the business”
“Working at SPACE-2 has given me an insight into the various aspects of the film business and has introduced roles to working in the film industry I had never heard of. Jane, Mark and Jo have been fantastic in accommodating me and provided me with real life experience that has been incredibly valuable. I would recommend the opportunity to anyone and I am look forward to working with them in the future.” This particular student has returned to work on projects with SPACE-2 whilst at university.
