We’re proud to be backing Inspire!, an independent charity working to bring business and education together to support the training and development of young people in Hackney, Camden and neighbouring boroughs in London.
Sweetshop has taken part in Inspire’s Work Experience Programme 2017/18 hosting placements throughout the year that offer young people the opportunity to develop valuable skills for the world of work and help them to explore future career options.
Twelve young people have joined Sweetshop’s team in London, gaining an insight into every part of the production process and learning about all the different roles that come together to make it happen. In return, our team benefitted from some extra help, while learning what motivates and inspires the workforce of tomorrow.
Spencer Dodd, Managing Director and Executive Producer of Sweetshop UK & Europe said, “It’s a privilege to welcome local young people into our company and industry as a whole through Inspire’s Work Experience Programme. The energy and enthusiasm the students have shown has been impressive, widening our perspectives, as well as their own.”
