Unpaid work placement, Is it too good to be true?

We often hear this phrase in business "if it sounds too good to be true, it general is" Why is that? We all want to work with each other and sell - promote our business using our valued contact list. After all, if we didn't buy or sell to each other and recommend each others businesses, it would weaken our relationship and the strength of our own business.

The general response we hear to the above statement is "What do you want"? Well to be honest we all want something! whether it's a referral/recommendation or we are trying to sell you something , normally at a cost to you.

Well here at Europa Training, I do want to sell you something, but - 100% FREE! No catches, no hidden costs! How is this possible - he must want something?

OK, so I do need something. I need employers to open there doors and let young adults from across Europe experience working in the UK, unpaid in their specialist sector.

We work with vocational training colleges and schools in Europe to provide the students with the best experience they can gain whilst living and working here in Plymouth whilst gaining vital experience and training in their field. 

These programmes are funded by the European Commission enabling students from across Europe the opportunity of a lifetime to travel, work, live in a different country and experience life abroad away from their homeland, many of them will never get this chance again. I wish I could have done this when I was at school!

We even take care of their accommodation, food and travel during their stay, all you need to do as an employer is open your door and give them the experience of a lifetime. 

If you think you could help enrich someones life and provide them with an excellent opportunity to help your business, and if you still think this is too good to be true, why not find out for yourself.
