It was ‘back to school’ for Engage Executive Jobs who recently took part in the Poole High School Employability Exhibition, which offers young people the opportunity to find out about local businesses and industry.
Always happy to help, the executive division of independent recruitment specialists, Jobshop UK, joined other local employers who set up stalls at the school where the students could come along, find out about the Company, ask questions and even try their hand at some practical typing exercises designed to check speed and accuracy – with the added bonus of Shake-Away vouchers for the winner of the fastest fingers!
The Engage stand proved exceptionally popular as Director, Frances Miles and Lucy York, Executive Recruitment Director, were able to answer a wide range of queries covering a broad spectrum of industries for which Engage Executive and their sister company, Jobshop UK recruit.
Speaking about the event, Director, Frances Miles said: “Engage and Jobshop are delighted to be involved with this initiative on an on-going basis. It is so important for businesses to engage with students in this way; helping them to understand the job opportunities that could be open to them, whether they want to pursue further education or not.”
