SThree’s Apprentice Scheme will be showcased tonight when our very own Olida Khanom features in an article in the London Evening Standard highlighting the work done with our partner, City Gateway.
Olida has become a familiar face around our King William Street offices since she joined the CSR team back in April. She’s been helping run our community and environmental initiatives and has been invaluable in helping develop our partnership with our fundraising partner SOS Children’s Villages, nurturing our skills-based volunteering projects and helping to increase awareness of SThree’s multiple CSR initiatives from STEM talks to the British 10K run.
Olida came to us as one of the apprentices we take on every year from the London based charity City Gateway. Working together we help provide young people with valuable paid employment while they work towards an NVQ qualification.
Olida’s ‘lucky break’
In the article Olida is highlighted as one of the scheme’s most successful apprentices and explains how important the support from SThree and City Gateway has been in giving her a ‘lucky break’ after leaving school to start a career.
Olida’s manager at SThree, Head of CSR Marie Broad, says Olida’s success is a great example of how seriously SThree takes its commitment to CSR. At SThree we don’t just talk about corporate social responsibility we live and breathe it. One of our main CSR objectives is to support young people, mostly from underprivileged backgrounds, by ‘transforming their lives though skills and work’. Olida’s success it something we can all be justly proud of it.”
