Morrisons seeks to help youngsters into work
Supermarket chain Morrisons has hatched a cunning plan in a bid to get young unemployed people back into work.
Sporting venues around the UK will be used to help some of the one million-plus unemployed young people get back into work through the retailer’s ‘Our Club’ scheme.
The scheme will use techniques from sports and coaching to help participants build skills and confidence and lay the foundations for a future career.
Academy and talent director at Morrisons Nick Rowe said: "Too many young people are getting stuck in a cycle of unemployment, without the experience and skills to take that first step on the work ladder. Sport is inspirational for many young people, so by combining elements from sports coaching with work skills training, we can deliver a programme that does much more than just teach people how to write a CV."
When candidates finish the scheme, which lasts six weeks, they are guaranteed an interview with a supporting local partner company. Morrisons also hopes this will give candidates new-found confidence and skills to impress employers, leading to opportunities for permanent employment in the future.
