Real Ideas makes work and careers opportunities happen for 18-25 year olds

Get in touch

“Dreams don’t work unless you do.”

But to simply get started on the road to finding your dream job, or even simply getting a job can be the hardest part of all.   Especially the way things are at the moment!

And if you’re 18-25 and haven’t really worked much before or haven’t found the right thing for you it can feel like the entire, huge, complicated world is against you.

That’s where we come in.  We are Real Ideas and we have buckets-full of experience of working with young people.  Everyone in our team works day-in-day-out to help young people think differently about themselves, and to open their minds to what it is that they could do in the world of work.

We see things in people that others often don’t, and we make it our mission to help people find and unlock opportunities both within themselves, and in the outside world, that they otherwise might not have found.

And we work together with you to sort out what’s possible. We help with all the info and the things you need to do, to start applying for your chosen jobs or working out a way that you can get there.  We build you up so you’re ready and confident.

We link you to work experience options that enable you to try and build that CV.  These could be in any sector, from construction to the creative industries, health and social care to hospitality, and much more. Then, when you’re all set, we help match-make you to the right job opportunities so you can go for it and get on with it in the working world.

And we’re here for you! We’ve got several great programmes to help young people in Cornwall get into work – find out more about our Game Changer and Generation E! programmes.

To find out what we can offer you, call or email us ASAP.  There is no commitment, but one of our team members will get back to you and then we’ll be on our way, working things out for you, together with you.
