Partington ‘PLEDGE’ to help local youngsters

Carrington Business Park are helping promote a scheme that Trafford Council has set up called           ‘The Partington Pledge‘ in a bid to help unemployed youngsters in the area.

The Partington Pledge is a local initiative to help young Partington residents gain employment with the support of local businesses. There are currently 85 young people between 18-24 years that are out of work and need help to move in to employment.

By signing up to the Partington Pledge, local businesses can offer help and support to local young people, making  a real difference to their lives by offering opportunities to help them get in to work more quickly. Financial incentives will be in place for those businesses able to offer jobs or apprenticeships to the young people.

Examples of things that local Businesess can do to help;

  • Offer a job
  • Recruit an apprentice
  • Offer work experience
  • Provide mentoring support to a young person
  • Give practical help, for example help with CV writing, preparing for interview

In return for signing up to the Partington Pledge, local Businesses will  receive dedicated help and support from a named contact who will help match your business to a local young person and be invited you to a launch event for the signing of the Partington Pledge on 30th April 2013.
