Marks & Spencer and Prince’s Trust offer places on Make Your Mark
A national retailer has joined forces with a youth charity to offer four young people from Wood Green a place on a scheme to help them find work.
Marks & Spencer, with help from the Prince’s Trust, is giving four people aged 16 to 24 a chance to join its new youth employability scheme - Make Your Mark.
The scheme offers on-the-job training and a mentoring programme designed to address the skills and experience gap that prevents unemployed people from finding work.
Its first session was launched in July and jobs were offered to all participants who passed each element of the programme.
The programme is an attempt to help some of the 122,000 unemployed young people in London.
Malik Amin-Rubio, store manager at M&S Wood Green, said: “There are hundreds of thousands of young people across the UK struggling to find work and we’re extremely proud to be helping to support some of those through the Make Your Mark programme.
“We hope to make a real and lasting impact on the lives of the young people coming through the programme at M&S Wood Green.”
