App designed for youth workers in partnership with O2's Think Big
IMImobile, a global mobile data infrastructure and solutions provider to telecom operators, enterprises and media companies, has launched an iPad app that provides youth workers with an interactive tool to educate and help young people land their first job.
In partnership with Telefonica UK and Streetspace, the app was developed as part of Telefonica UK's Think Big Project. Telefonica UK approached IMImobile with the opportunity to develop an iPad app on behalf of Streetspace, an initiative that aims to promote young people's personal and social development.
The Streetspace app was designed as a tool to assist their youth workers in helping young people learn about the process of gaining employment.
The iPad app provides essential information from the initial stages of matching skills to potential jobs, finding jobs, managing expectations, the interviewing process, to dealing with unemployment. With definable parameters and utilising IMImobile's iPad development kit, the app delivers tailored content in an engaging format to help users find their first job.
Alex Klose, head of marketing at IMImobile, commented: 'With iPads increasingly being integrated with how people learn, it is important to provide young people with the correct tools to assist with the transition from education to career. At IMImobile we believe in investing in the future and we're delighted to work with Telefonica UK and Streetspace in developing an iPad app that helps youth workers to educate young people, so that they can start their career and shape their future.'
Nicky McGroarty, head of supply chain at Telefonica UK, said: 'We have been delighted to work with IMImobile and Streetspace on this important project. Giving young people the tools to help craft their own future is an important part of our Think Big initiative. What's great about the app is that through the use of technology, youth workers can demo to young people whenever and wherever on the move – a great flexible solution in this digital age.'
