Our part in supporting the Youth Employment Initiative.
The Youth Employment Team (YEI) at Redcar & Cleveland Council offer young local people age 16 - 29 careers advice. They support young people with interview and CV skills and help them into apprenticeships and work placements. The YEI also offer career progression advice and any funded training qualifications available.
As ambassadors for Redcar & Cleveland, we were eager to employ a young person from our area when we needed to expand our team. One of the YEI advisers helped Catherine through the job application process. Catherine then attended a successful interview and became part of the Sign Art team. You can read Catherine's story here.
As part of a feature promoting the Youth Employment Initiative, Harry and Catherine took part in a live radio interview at our local radio station, Zetland FM. Here they discussed the benefits of the YEI and taking on an apprentice from the local area.
