Over two days in February, DICE had the opportunity to host 17 young people at our offices in Dalston for work experience taster days. The event was organised in partnership with ERIC, an app that connects young people to internships, apprenticeships, events, courses and upskilling opportunities across the creative industries. The initial plan was to run it over a single day with contributions from a few teams; but in true DICE fashion, a massive number of our people wanted to get involved, so we went one better and hosted two packed-out days of workshops and talks to inspire and support those just starting out in their career journeys.
With day one dedicated to the Commercial and Operations side of the business, and the second focusing on Product and Engineering, volunteers from across the teams organised sessions to share information about their departments and roles, and how their career paths led them to DICE. It can be intimidating coming into a new environment and trying to wrap your head around jobs and functions, but the vibe at DICE is a welcoming one and it was brilliant to see how relaxed and comfortable the attendees were with us all.
