Charity and firm team up to help young people in Brighton
8:30pm Monday 18th March 2013 in News
Employment charity Tomorrow’s People in Brighton has teamed up with Ladbrokes to help people in their hunt to find a job.
Staff from the company have been conducting mock interviews with disadvantaged young people from the charity, providing a link to the business world.
This follows a £5,000 donation from Ladbrokes to the charity to support the project.
Ladbrokes district supervisor Nic Comley said: “We have really enjoyed doing the mock interviews and we’re pleased it has helped the young people.
“The experience has been mutually beneficial; it has given our staff some valuable practice at interviewing and has informed changes to our own interview procedures.”
Tomorrow’s People advisor Zoe Miller said: “Input from companies like Ladbrokes has been essential in Brighton.
“Most of the young people have never been through the experience of a job interview, so practicing this in a supportive environment is invaluable for their future.”
