Howes Percival has been awarded with a bronze accreditation for supporting the Norwich for Jobs programme.
Norwich for Jobs is a voluntary project which aims to reduce unemployment among 18-24 year olds in Norwich. The project works with local businesses to help young people find appropriate work through apprenticeships, workplace tours, work taster sessions and work experience. It also offers support with CVs and interviews.
Over the past year, Howes Percival has supported the initiative in a number of ways including running mock interviews, giving training on writing CVs and offering advice and support at the Norwich for Jobs club.
Nicola Curle, a Director at Howes Percival said:
‘We think it’s important to make a positive impact on the communities we work. Working with young people on realising their employment potential has been incredibly rewarding and we look forward to continuing our work with Norwich for Jobs.’
Gordon Simpson, also a Director at Howes Percival said:
‘We are delighted to be recognised for our efforts in helping to tackle youth unemployment in the area and encourage other local businesses to take part in the initiative.’
