Three leading local employers have become the latest organisations to sign up for interactive online career talks with the Trent Bridge Community Trust.

Representatives from Rolls-Royce, The Nottingham Building Society and County Battery will deliver live Q&As via Zoom on career pathways and opportunities.

The events have been organised by the Trust’s YouNG project, which aims to equip young people between 13 and 21 with the skills they need to succeed in their chosen career.

“Just because the country is in lockdown doesn’t mean that people’s lives have to be on hold, but it can be tough at the moment for young people to find their way into work,” said Mark Clifford, the Trust’s Community Projects Manager.

“There’s no substitute for hearing about career journeys from people who have been there and done that, and that’s exactly what these talks are designed to provide.

“It’s great that we have a world-leading firm like Rolls-Royce on board to inspire young people, and the insight into career pathways from major local employers like The Nottingham Building Society and County Battery will be equally invaluable.

“We hope that these live Q&As will help local youngsters to achieve their ambitions and raise their aspirations.”
