Invested in our Community / MINT
We are proud to be a long term supporter of local employment organisation MINT, a provision set up by City College, Norwich which focuses on getting young people, aged 16 – 25 who have a barrier to work, into sustainable, paid employment.
We have supported the provision by hosting pre-employment placement students for their ten-week pre-employment programme, giving them valuable work experience within real life business situations. Usually based in our administration team, the student has exposure to the day to day office environment across marketing, IT, Finance and HR, and is able to build their confidence and skills with the support of the MINT Employment Coaches.
Our staff are more than happy to invest their time in this important scheme. We have seen the great outcomes the students achieve following their placements with the support of the hard working and positive MINT team.
In addition to the placements, we have also presented to the Employment Coaches themselves regarding Employment Law updates thanks to our Employment Law Solicitor Carla Gowing; who is also due to present to the current intake of MINT students to give an insight into her work.
