Insight day with Drive Forward Foundation

Last week, together with our partners at Drive Forward Foundation, a charity that helps young adults achieve their full potential, we welcomed care-experienced young people for a dedicated insight day at our London office.

Attendees had an introduction to our business and the FM industry and had an opportunity to network with leaders and hiring managers from our cleaning, transport, security and guest services divisions. Additionally, they were able to participate in interactive group activities and mock interviews.

The day was a great success with participants sharing their experiences, engaging in meaningful conversations, and establishing valuable connections through the exchange of contact information.

Suhag, one of the young people in attendance, commented on the event: “It was a really clear event to show the opportunities at Churchill Group. It isn’t often you attend an event where so many people can relate to each other.”

Julie Hollins, our Social Value Lead, said: “It was such a pleasure to host an inspirational group of young people. Thank you to Drive Forward Foundation for all the support and to all our leaders for engaging with those attending in such a powerful way and making the day a success. I am so proud to be part of the relationships we have started and can’t wait to see what we can do next!”

We are excited to continue developing our partnership with Drive Forward Foundation and supporting young people from all backgrounds into the workplace.

Our partnership with Drive Forward is part of our wider commitment to empower young people to gain independence, as we are also signatories to the Care Leavers Covenant.
