Work Discovery Week Sunderland Sponsorship Opportunites June 24-28 2019

Work Discovery Week Sunderland was launched in 2013 as a unique initiative from the city’s Economic Leadership Board. The programme is designed to forge relationships between businesses and schools in the city and provide the young people of Sunderland with real life insights into the world of work.

The success of the week was such that it has now become an annual event, with increasingly more businesses taking part and a more far-reaching programme of activities. Now firmly fixed on the calendar, the seventh Work Discovery Week will be taking place from June 24 - 28 June 2019 with an exciting range of sponsorship opportunities available.

Once again it will be a high profile event with a full and diverse programme of activities which will not only benefit young people in Sunderland but will also give businesses and industry the opportunity to showcase their own products and services to the workforce of the future.

To date the event has not only forged strong relationships between businesses and schools but also gained more than £1m worth of print, online and broadcast media coverage. That success was built on by the extension of the programme throughout the year, thanks to the introduction of a range of sector specific one day events and a number of inspirational guest speaker days where young people hear about the career paths of business people from a whole host of backgrounds.

There is a varied range of opportunities for sponsorship available, from goody bags to specific activities. If you have any specific requests that you would like to build in as part of your package please contact Bernice at Sorted PR on 0191 265 6111 or email bernice@sortedpr.com
