Employers and representatives from local businesses including Signs Express, Jaded Heart, Monica F Hewitt Florists Ltd, RUCST and Mears, recently took part in a successful ‘Meet the employer – Dragons Den’ workshop at the LEAF careers event at Magna. 

The workshop was aimed at better preparing young people for the world of work and was delivered to 197 young people from Rotherham. Feedback from young people included “More people should get this opportunity”, “More useful than expected” and “Great! Awesome!”

If you're a small or medium sized employer with a base in Rotherham and would like to get involved in similar events to both champion local young people and to promote and grow your business, please email: jennie.watts@rotherham.gov.uk, or call 01709 823853.
