‘Get Hired’ with The Prince’s Trust

Ambition:Leeds hosted a hospitality ‘Get Hired’ day on 11 July 2019 for a group of 10 young people who had completed a Barista training course, delivered by 200 Degrees Coffee. Employers who engaged with the initiative to interview the group included Pizza Express, Starbucks, LS6 Café, Arch Café, Marriott Hotel, and Ground Up Coffee.

In total, a fantastic 7 out of 10 young people were successful in securing jobs following participation in this course. A further ‘Get Hired’ day took place on 21 August with employers Ibis Styles, Bar Burrito, Wood Hall Hotel, The Met Hotel, Oulton Hall Hotel, Prezo, Ground Up Coffee, McDonalds, and Wetherspoons.

 

Feedback from employers was excellent including “Really enjoyed this event, great to be part of a scheme that gives opportunity to young people – met some great potential candidates too” (Wood Hall Hotel) and “Great event – lovely to meet young people with lots to offer who maybe haven’t had the chance they deserve” (Prezzo).

 

A further Retail Get Hired event is planned for the 18 November 2019.
