Employment Opportunities through the Youth Service

Tuesday 28th April 2015

The Royal Borough of Greenwich Youth Service, delivered by Charlton Athletic Community Trust, has put in place a job search folder for young people looking for employment opportunities.

Based out of the Hawksmoor Youth Club in Thamesmead, the idea came from 12 young people seeking employment opportunities in the area. From that, the staff at Hawksmoor have fully backed the initiative, repaying the young peoples positive attitude.

“Through working with young people, it has come to my attention that the outcome to having a positive mental approach needs to be rewarded,” said one of the youth hub workers out of Hawksmoor.

“The job search folder is a reward and is supported by staff who believe in young people and their positive achievable goals”.

As a result, these young ambitious individuals have gained skills for life, built self-esteem and confidence whether directly obtaining employment or experiencing the process.
