Sharkey give direction to those in need

2nd November 2016 in Community Involvement
Sharkey’s community support initiative continues to grow following our participation at the ‘Routes to Your Future’ event, in partnership with Skills Development Scotland.

As part of our Community Support Initiative we were delighted to work in partnership with Skills Development Scotland during the successful delivery of the ‘Route to Your Future’ event which took place on 28th October, 2016 at Tynecastle Stadium, Edinburgh. This innovative event was geared towards carers, and young people in care, aged between 14-26 with the aim of motivating the participants whilst also offering realistic careers advice including honest dialogue regarding requirements when applying for employment. Sharkey’s team were also on hand to give advice regarding the variety of career opportunities available in the Construction Industry, including the non-traditional trade roles.

Mark Halliday, from our Community Outreach Team, was delighted to also be part of the professional panel during the careers seminar. This interactive discussion enabled open and helpful discussions about topics including:

  • Opportunities for young people at Sharkey including the non-traditional trade roles
  • Training options, including apprenticeships
  • Common barriers / challenges faced by young people entering employment
  • What support mechanisms Sharkey operate to aid people from disadvantage background enter the workplace

Sharkey were delighted to be supporting Skills Development Scotland, and this successful event follows similar projects undertaken with The BiTC, Street Soccer Scotland and Liberton High School.
