Rare Recruitment becomes City Year Londons official Recruitment Partner

Youth volunteering charity City Year London has joined forces with Rare Recruitment, which has agreed to become the charitys official Recruitment Partner.

Rare Recruitment specialises in placing talented ethnic minority students in great jobs with top companies.

City Year currently has 60 young people aged 18 25 who are volunteering full-time in six primary schools across the London boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets. They act as tutors, mentor and role models getting the chance to transform the lives of the children they work with.

In return for their commitment, these young people (known as corps members) gain life-enhancing skills, leadership training and a 1,000 Citizen Service Award to help them with future education and employment opportunities.

City Year London is recruiting young people for the next academic year, and will be working closely with Rare to find a diverse and high calibre pool of young people to serve in its schools.

Rares founder and Managing Director, Raphael Mokades said:

I am thrilled to be supporting City Year London as Recruitment Partner. I first came across City Year on a trip to America last year and was deeply impressed by the ethos of the organisation, the calibre of the corps members and the scale of the organisations vision. Im a Londoner born and bred and for City Year to be in London, and for Rare to be supporting the charity, means a lot to me.

Sophie Livingstone, Chief Executive of City Year London, said:

We are very pleased to be working in partnership with Rare, which places the same emphasis on diversity that we do at City Year.

We are looking forward to promoting the opportunity of spending ten months serving children and communities through City Year to the high calibre candidates that Rare works with, and to giving them opportunities for self-development that will stand them in good stead as future employees of top UK firms in the future.
