Bristol-based CSRN has announced a new pilot scheme to help sixth form students get a taste of the consultancy industry, offering project opportunities with social change organisations.
Are you interested in consultancy and looking for new connections and opportunities to get a foot through the door in a tough industry?
Bristol’s CSRN organisation took that phrase quite literally with its new ‘First Steps Programme’, an initiative organised with consultancy company Q5. It’s designed to give students a chance to network, learn new skills, and make a genuine impact in disaster areas across the world.
If we’ve peaked your interest, we’ve got a comprehensive guide to the First Steps Programme below, including the charities involved and some useful links to get you clued up.
Though currently in its infancy, CSRN is aiming to branch the project out to schools across the country – so keep your eyes peeled for updates and bookmark the official website.
What is CSRN?
CSRN is a student-run organisation based in Bristol that began last year in response to the pandemic. Its main aim is to connect student consultancies with social change companies and organisations that help regions impacted by crises.
In short, CSRN gives Gen Zers opportunities to get a foot through the door within consultancy, introducing them to big social change names and allowing them to be actively involved in important human aid initiatives.
Its first year saw collaborations with over 30 student led consultancies, supporting 170 social impact organisations. Not too shabby, eh?
