Hays staff help London children

Staff from Hays, the world's leading recruiting expert in qualified, professional and skilled people, have been helping to raise the aspirations of young Londoners in care. The Hays' consultants volunteered at Wise Up, a day-long event which consisted of interactive workshops aimed to increase young people's awareness about education, training pathways, volunteering opportunities and skills training. The event was organised by the Mayor of London, Action for Childrenand Barnardos and took place at Kings College, London on the 13th February 2010.

Saadet Yalcin, Campaigns Manager at Hays, says: "We are proud to be able to share our knowledge and experience of the world of work to inspire young Londoners. The Hays' team played a crucial role in ensuring both young people and carers got the most out of the day. The workshops and inspirational speakers informed the children about the value of work and how to choose a suitable career. We hope the event had a positive effect on all the attendees."
