Just a quick blog from me today as I just wanted to highlight a great opportunity I’ve heard about to visit a number of cooperatives in the Greater Manchester area – and no I don’t mean the supermarket!
Cooperatives or co-ops are they are more commonly known are businesses/organisations that are owned and run by members who share the profits and benefits. Despite representing less than 1% of all businesses, research carried out by the work place review website JobCrowd found that 4 of what they suggest to be the top 25 graduate employers were actually co-ops. This research suggests that co-ops might be a great place to work and are worthy of further exploration.
As Part of Cooperative Fortnight (June 22nd – 6th July) Cooperatives 2020 are offering a series of FREE visits to a range of co-ops in Greater Manchester. It’ll be a chance to find out what work in this area is like and a great opportunity to network with people in the sector.
If you’re interested you need to apply for a place using this application form. You can apply to visit as few or as many venues as you wish but spaces are limited and are offered on a first come first served basis – so get your applications in NOW! Deadline for applications is Monday 17th June. If you need any more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
