Young people dealing with homelessness struggle to find the opportunities and support they need to be able to get a foot on the career ladder, which is why our EET team decided to hold a Jobs Fair specifically aimed at 18-25 year olds.
Attendees to the fair included representatives from Pret, Yummy Pubs, Scope, Prince's Trust, Bauer Media, The Running Charity, KX Recruit and many more. In addition young people were able to attend workshops on wellbeing and mental health as well as getting one-to-one CV support from our EET team. The fair was followed by a community barbecue to express our gratitude to our neighbours in the surrounding area, with music, sports events and food for all.
We'd like to thank all our exhibitors for taking the time to come to the centre to make the day a huge success, and we'll look forward to seeing positive outcomes for the young people they met on the day.
