Omni RMS recognises importance of Youth Employment Support Schemes
Omni RMS has pledged to provide support alongside Mitie to the children’s charity, St Christopher’s Fellowship, through delivering the tools required to ensure all adolescents involved with the charity have the skills they need to search for and attain employment.
Initiatives and schemes designed to improve the job prospects of those not yet in work do not only make steps to solve future skills shortages and reduce unemployment rates, but importantly, change the lives and safeguard the careers of young adults across the UK.
St Christopher’s Fellowship, a London-based children’s charity and provider of services for young people, wanted to give those currently in their care the opportunity to enhance their future job prospects, whilst also creating something tangible and future-proof which would benefit the youth who become engaged with the charity over the years to come. Omni immediately responded, delivering a workshop and committing to support the charity in the long-term through the provision of its Employment Support Workbook – a manual specifically created for the enhancement of youth job prospects and employability.
The extensive workshop included training for the charity’s workers as well as a host of beneficial information designed specifically to enhance the chances of employment, such as how to put together the perfect CV the latest jobsite and recruitment agency information interview preparation the importance of considering an employer’s culture and values and a step-by-step guide of how to create a LinkedIn profile.
Commenting on the event, Daniel Solomon, Head of Communications & Marketing at Omni, says, “As a responsible strategic resourcing partner for all of our clients, it is vital that we fully understand the barriers to employment for all groups across the UK – including vulnerable young adults.
“Support schemes do not only provide short-term help, but they also change lives and Omni is delighted to support St Christopher’s mentoring sessions. It’s a privilege for us to back young people who will undoubtedly benefit from successfully acquiring practical qualifications. This initiative will make a significant difference to the young people involved with the charity when it comes to searching for future employment.
“As a responsible and ethical organisation who, like many of our clients, shares a passion for building social value and equality, we are looking forward to seeing the impact the support and workshops has to St Christopher’s in achieving its truly admirably objectives.”
Attending care workers from St Christopher’s added, “It was a great piece of training definitively relevant to our young people, especially those who are willing to get into employment.”
“Very useful – the content was really informative and up-to-date. It went right back to basics, related to the issues of young people and will enable support staff to help young people to get into work.”
