SThree are pleased to announce a partnership with the City Gateway Women’s Project. The Project helps local women develop skills, increase their confidence, improve independence and move into employment.
Last week, six representatives from SThree attended the first of three Work Skills sessions designed to help the participants into work. Among the skills they covered were how to create a great CV, apply for a job and prepare for an interview.
“The CV help was of great benefit to the women. Having a pool of volunteers from different departments really helped the learners understand the different functions within a corporate organisation. We are really pleased about this new partnership and have lots of ideas for working together that can impact the lives of the women we work with massively.”
Razia Mestry, Enterprise and Corporate Partnerships Lead, City Gateway
What’s happening next?
Further training will be available to those who attend including follow-up interview skills and behaviours in the workplace.
The Women’s Project is the newest activity that SThree are supporting with City Gateway which has seen 10 apprentices take up roles with the company. Of the seven who have finished their apprenticeships four have taken on permanent roles internally, two have moved into roles elsewhere and one has become the first in his family to go to university.
SThree has also run employability sessions with groups of young people before they start apprenticeships with other companies, and worked with charity staff to learn more about the recruitment lifecycle and improve how they pitch to companies.
SThree is proud to be featured as one of City Gateway’s corporate partners on their website: https://home.citygateway.org.uk/our-partners.
