Rainmaker (a partner working with Birmingham City Council) and ELSA (a community interest company that empowers young people through skills development) will be running a “Get Work Ready” event for Year 10 students at City Academy Birmingham on Tuesday 28th January …. and we need volunteers!
ELSA’s “Get Work Ready” is a day of hands-on workshops that brings students and businesses together with the aim of introducing students to the application processes used by businesses, allowing them a real glimpse into what it is that employers look for.
The day includes a variety of team and individual activities which is great fun and provides a chance for local employers to get involved in what is an incredibly rewarding experience …and you never know, a future star employee of yours could be at the event!
As a volunteer, you can be involved in a number of ways:
- Could you take on the role of interviewer, providing constructive feedback and positive advice?
- Could you run a scenario with students based around how your company addresses and overcomes challenges? Maybe give them a challenge to deal with which teaches them to apply real-world work skills like problem-solving and teamwork?
Rainmaker will be there to help lead the day. We simply need your time and enthusiasm!
If you’re a Birmingham based business and can provide volunteers for the day, or want to know more about how you can make a difference, please get in touch at email@example.com.
