Our first Employers and Volunteering Fair kicked off this month in the café with lots of local companies attending.
Dexters Estate Agents, care home specialists Anchor, childrens' holiday club Koosa Kids and White Lodge, who provide life enhancing services for a range of disabilities – were all on site offering career advice, job opportunities and volunteering positions.
Cat Elmes from the College's Progression Guidance Team says, “Students really appreciated having face-to-face conversations with employers. It is the first real chance they've had in two years to have an in-person event like this.“
Compass Group UK, which hires staff for the events and hospitality industry including at Sandown, was inundated with more than 140 students applying for part time roles. Other companies present included our local Clubland Playscheme and Surrey Fire and Rescue Service.
Brandon Van Der Westhuizen, from Dexters Estate Agent Group, said, “Thank you for inviting us down to meet your students. We had a great day out talking about our career opportunities and Dexters training Academy programme."
