Daisy Communications welcomed a group of young people into its offices as it launched its inaugural mentoring programme.
We’ve teamed up with Whitefield Youth Association, a voluntary group based in Pendle, Lancashire which aims to transform young lives and create sustainable communities, to deliver our first programme.
The Nelson office welcomed a group of youngsters from the local community on Thursday 6 February and, with three more sessions being held over the next few weeks, it’s hoped the programme will help them take their first steps on the career ladder.
More than ten employees have volunteered their time for the scheme which is designed to help the young people prepare for their futures by offering career advice, CV writing skills and providing them with interview tips. It’s hoped the mentoring programme will build the confidence of the mentees and give them the skills needed so they can successfully apply for jobs.
Director of HR, Lee Bayman, said: “We’re excited to be hosting our mentoring programme, and it’s a great opportunity for us to give something back to the local community. The skills our mentors give the young people could see them secure jobs in the future and, hopefully, we’ll welcome some of them back into Daisy as one of our employees one day.”
If the scheme is successful, it’s hoped it will be rolled out to the Daisy offices across the country.
