Lord Holmes is Britain’s most successful Paralympic swimmer, a former lawyer and a champion for the eradication of unpaid internships. We spoke to Chris about his private member’s Bill, what unpaid internships mean to society and the economy at large as well as what it means to young people.
“It’s about opening up the conversation and having people, employers, parents, universities, schools everybody talking about this”
“Why would you want to be drawing from such a small talent pool?”
“Are we cool having slave labour in this country”
We’ll keep you updated on the progress of the Bill through parliament and hope that within months unpaid internships can become something of the past and an issue which is really important for both AllAboutGroup and RMP Enterprise.
Ollie has written a great blog outlining his thoughts and the great work Ratemyplacement.co.uk are doing to support the end of unpaid internships.
