Reliable Contractors present for the DWP Mentoring Circles initiative
Last week our Corporate and Social Responsibility Executive Morgan Clarke was a part of the Mentoring Circles initiative rolled out by the DWP.
The initiative is a type of action learning focusing on personal development of those involved, many young people do not have access to social capital, role models or inspiring employer mentors. This initiative bridges this gap, bringing employers and jobseekers together.
The Mentoring Circle model was comprised of three mentoring circle meetings where employers, like Morgan, lead the sessions and share insight and information about their industry. Morgan completed her second session with a group of 9 mentees from the borough of Lambeth. They practiced interview techniques, created industry specific CVs and shared tips on writing a great cover letter.
The third and final session will take place this week where Morgan will be taking the group on site to meet some of the team and learn more about one of our projects.
