What is GoThinkBig?
We’ve listened to young people and you’ve told us it’s tough out there. Getting relevant work experience, planning for the future and developing the skills to succeed – it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why the teams at O2 and Bauer Media have joined forces to bring you GoThinkBig.co.uk - a one-stop shop that will pool helpful ideas, advice and support to get you going in these challenging times.
We’re a team grown from a load of UK youth brands (O2, Think Big, Kiss, heat, Kerrang!, FHM, more!, Grazia, Empire and Q, among others) and all of us at some point have struggled to get the relevant skills needed to kickstart our careers - so we know exactly what you're going through. We've worked with all of the talented teams across our businesses to create the opportunities and content on this website that we hope you'll find useful as you start out on your own career path.
With useful tools and advice from inspiring people in media, creative and digital careers and those just starting out, it won't just help you get any old job, it will empower you to develop the skills needed to create exciting opportunities for yourself and move closer to bagging your dream career.
SHARE useful, simple tools to help you identify your talents and passions, develop new skills and kick start your career.
CONNECT you to the experts. Whether that’s entrepreneurs and tech wizards who skipped the standard jobs market and still made a name for themselves, or those expert bods in hiring and firing who’ll let you into a few secrets of their own.
LIFT the lid on all the jobs you hadn’t even considered – plus, we’ll flag up gaps in the market just waiting to be filled.
REVEAL exclusive jobs, internships, cool work placements and skills days that you won’t see anywhere else.
SHINE a light on careers and businesses that celebrate creativity, innovation, the digital economy and invest in the transformative skills and talents young people can bring.
o2 and gothinkbig
GoThinkBig.co.uk is a new Think Big initiative. Young people are full of ideas, energy and enthusiasm and Think Big gives them the training and funding they need to turn their ideas into reality.
O2 is the driving force behind Think Big because we believe in the power of young people and their ideas. And as one of the biggest companies in the UK, we can back them. Invest in them. Campaign for them. Give them a platform and a voice.
Telefónica is one of the biggest telecommunication companies in the world and is the parent brand of O2 in the UK. Think Big is a Telefónica Foundation programme.
We want to find other organisations and businesses who want to join us in helping young people gain skills and work experience. If you are a company with opportunities that you would like to promote on GoThinkBig.co.uk, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
