GL staff take part in the Worktree project

Richard Willis, one of our Partners in the Commercial Property Department, recently attended an event organised by the registered charity Worktree based here in Milton Keynes.

Worktree provides a network of individuals who help young people to find out what work is really like by answering their questions honestly.

The volunteers, facilitated by the Worktree staff, generally operate in schools but in addition they help introduce job-seeking homeless young adults who are YMCA residents to the work guests from different backgrounds so that the young adults can find out what it is really like in different jobs.  As with the school children this helps them to develop their career awareness, their aspirations and their employability skills.

Richard attended a session at YMCA Milton Keynes on 25 January 2019 and the event received great feedback from both participants and guests.

If you have work experience these short, speed interview type sessions are hugely rewarding and Richard would encourage you to give it a try. For more information Click here.
