SThree and our ten specialist brands play an integral part in supporting the talent pipeline for our clients who operate in life changing industries. This is why we've launched the SThree Foundation which supports bright young people from underprivileged and diverse backgrounds in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
As a global specialist staffing business we’re aware of the skills shortage in STEM industries and well placed to facilitate involvement across these sectors.
We believe that we all have a responsibility to ensure that we make career opportunities available to diverse talent for innovation and sustainable growth, as well as help to change young lives towards positive destinations.
More about the SThree Foundation
Through our Future Talent programme, set up in collaboration with charity partner Generating Genius, we're engaging school students who have an interest in STEM and strong academics to help them to successfully transition into STEM higher education, jobs and apprenticeships.
Of all the students we support, 60% will be female to address the current gender imbalance going into these sectors.
What are we doing?
Initially, we’re working with London-based charity Generating Genius to support 50 A-Level students, 16 to 18 years old, over two years as they complete high school. These students are from diverse ethnic backgrounds and live in disadvantaged areas.
We will be offering them SThree workshops to understand emerging trends and opportunities in STEM. We will also be working with our partners to provide week-long insight placements during the 2017 school holidays.
