Get behind the scenes work experience, enhance your CV and be part of….

The Mix Staff

The Ericsson Work Experience programme is a unique and exciting opportunity to get hands-on work experience in a large, multi-national company whilst gaining valuable experience of an innovative business environment and the work of the telecoms industry.

Ericsson are offering 12 young people (aged 18-25) from the Midlands a unique four-day work experience package, that includes three days at Ericsson’s offices working alongside engineers in the field and one day on a group ‘hack’ run by Freeformers.

What is a ‘hack’ day?

The hack day is an opportunity to bring you together with the brilliant brains at Freeformers, they’ll be sharing how to create your own website, become a Facebook developer and use HTML, CSS and Javascript. You’ll then work together, using the skills you’ve gained to come up with your own creative project.

This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is interested in IT, software development, telecoms or technology/network engineering. If you want some work-based experience to kick-start your career, this is ideal for you!

You will learn from employees who have years of experience and gain valuable insights into how an innovative business like Ericsson works. This is a great chance for you to network in the digital sector, making connections and an impression on people who work in the sector you’re interested in.  You will also develop your team-work skills and enhance your CV, putting you above the rest in a competitive job market.


The Ericsson Work Experience programme days will be taking place in two groups of six, with everyone joining together at the end for a group hack day with Freeformers.

Group 1: 7th, 8th, 9th and 18th October

Group 2: 14th, 15th, 16th and 18th October

Each day will run from 9.00am – 5.30am.


The opportunity takes place in Ericsson’s office in Coventry. If you live in Coventry or surrounding areas in East and West Midlands get in touch! Reasonable travel expenses will be paid and lunch will be provided.

If you’re unsure as to whether you can take part because of where you’re based, email [email protected] for more information.
