On Wednesday 23rd October our Recruitment Resourcer, Andrew Schofield, is heading down to St Anne’s Church of England Academy to take part in a Speed Networking event, design to prepare students with the life skills they need ahead of entering the world of work.
Recruitment Solutions will be one of the businesses there to lend their expertise and experience to the Year 9 students, who will have the opportunity to quiz employers on their organisations and what the working world is like.
On the opportunity to speak directly to the students, Andrew said:
I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a great initiative by St. Anne’s Academy who have spotted the need to give their students a bit of extra support in the build-up to them leaving school and going into employment.
It can be a daunting time for a young person as the way their environment works will change almost instantly. Events like this to give students access to businesses and employers will only give them more confidence and experience, which is a great thing for them but also great for us to be a part of.
