RMP Enterprise was created after a light bulb moment the three co-founders had whilst graduating from Loughborough University in 2007. After searching and undertaking their own work experience opportunities, Ali Lindsay, Oliver Sidwell and Chris Wickson felt there was a real information gap in the market. Being true entrepreneurs, they created RateMyPlacement, the company’s flagship product, to give back to undergraduates what they had missed out on – a chance to read reviews on what it’s really like to undertake a placement or internship by those who had experienced it first hand.
Nine years later, RMP Enterprise has evolved into the market leader in undergraduate attraction, offering a suite of innovative products and services to help employers attract talented and career conscious young people into their organisations. With an office in the heart of Brixton, 45 employees and eight major products using a variety of media platforms, the business is more focused than ever on raising the awareness of the value of work experience to young people and providing employers with direct access to this audience.
At RMP we’re committed to Corporate Social Responsibility by striving to run in an ethical, transparent and accountable way in line with our company values – Enhance, Passion, Innovate, Collaborate and Achieve. We do this in four different ways by…
- Using the second greenest company in the UK as our stationery supplier to help reduce our Carbon Footprint and, where possible, using a search engine (https://www.ecosia.org/) instead of using Google or Safari because 80% of their revenue goes towards planting trees.
- Using Fair Trade tea and coffee for our breakfast supplies where possible
- Providing a Monetary contribution for everyone who works here to enter or take part in a charitable/ fundraising event
- Supporting the mentoring scheme run by Career Ready
