Young­sters to meet bosses

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

YOUNG peo­ple are in­vited to meet the Mac­cles­field busi­nesses who have pledged to get them into work.

The Mac­cles­field Pledge asks em­ploy­ers to prom­ise to help pro­vide ev­ery young per­son in town with the op­por­tu­nity to find a job or fur­ther train­ing.

It’s been or­gan­ised by Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, Cheshire East Coun­cil, Ev­ery­body Leisure and Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil, and will be fol­lowed by a ca­reers fair.

Trevor Langston, who works for South Cheshire Cham­ber of Com­merce and is steer­ing the pro­ject, said: “Lo­cal em­ploy­ers are in a unique po­si­tion to in­flu­ence the way young peo­ple are pre­pared for work.

Mac­cles­field Pledge in­vites all busi­ness peo­ple to the launch of this ma­jor new ini­tia­tive which sup­ports the de­vel­op­ment of young peo­ple whilst pro­vid­ing busi­nesses with en­thu­si­as­tic and in­no­va­tive em­ploy­ees of the fu­ture.”

The event takes place at Mac­cles­field Town Hall on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 3 from mid­day to 12.30pm. School groups will at­tend the ca­reers fair from 12.30pm, with mem­bers of the pub­lic in­vited from 3.30pm un­til 7pm.
