Here at career moves group we don’t think what we offer can be simply termed as ‘corporate social responsibility’.
We really care about our industry and we always seek to add value to it.
Our aim is to really improve the level and diversity of talent in our sectors by opening up opportunities. We seek to inspire young people to pursue a career in specialist areas – that they may have thought unobtainable and thus create a wider range of young talent.
The students of today will be the industry leaders of tomorrow.
With our multicultural society and a media world evolving through digital – a diverse range of talent, from different backgrounds and cultures is needed to keep up and maintain the excellent industry standard.
We aren’t alone
We don’t just stand alone shouting about this either. We champion, develop and engage in National Campaigns, developing partnerships with key players and actively influencing our sectors as a whole, and our local community, to do something.
We dream of a fairer, stronger, more diverse workplace and we play our part to make that dream a reality.
So back to the original point – we are proud to add value – to the industry, to our clients, to our candidates and to the community.

Career Academies is a national initiative where young people are given the skills and advice needed to prepare them for the working world.
A lot of young people don’t know what they want to do. If they do, they often don’t know how to pursue it. It is amazing how a little bit of interest and a little bit of help can inspire someone to pursue that dream and get these very bright minds engaged within the media industry. It is not an overstatement that this initiative can literally change peoples’ lives.
We do our part by looking locally. Working in partnership with a local school, we take young people through all the skills they will need when looking for a job, and in the workplace. From writing a CV, to identifying opportunities, interviewing and office behaviour, we prepare our young candidates and help them get the most of their work placements. In return, employers get extremely switched on and engaging interns.
If you have a work experience program and are interested in helping inspire a young person to get involved in your industry, please visit the website or get in touch.
career moves group has had an active role from inception on Business in the Community’s Work Inspiration Campaign.
It isn’t enough that we prepare young people for the media world, there needs to be a way for more young people to get an insight into the industry and be inspired to pursue a career in our sector.
The campaign seeks to transform often mundane work experience into an inspirational event which opens their eyes to the rewards of working in the media world. This is done via a simple set of insights we helped to develop and a free, easy to implement toolkit.
Working with, amongst others - ITV, BBC, BITC, Chime Communications and Leo Burnett - we set ourselves a target of getting 70,000 work inspiration placements in 2010.
A launch party was held at ITV studios where our Director, Sheryll Karpel, gave an impassioned speech alongside the likes of Adam Crozier, Lucy Adams and Chris Satterthwaite to leaders from all over the media industry. This led to over 90 more companies pledging their support of the initiative.
We aren’t resting on our laurels.
