Partnering with Chelmsford College – Working with the Future Workforce!

In addition to our usual marketing efforts, Employment Law Seminars and of course… placing candidates, we have also been working with the future workforce on their career development!

On Tuesday 11th May, Chelmsford College held their annual Progression Fair where 4,000 students can access advice from employers and recruitment agencies in preparation for making the transition from education to employment. Chelmsford College, under normal circumstances, hold their annual Progression Fair on site, with stands that students can come too, however, due to Covid, this took place as a digital fair, whereby students could message us directly for advice covering:

Interview tips
CV writing tips
Cover letter writing tips
And much more!!

As part of our on-going conversations with Chelmsford College, we have also started discussing how Pursuit can get involved with their Business and Entrepreneurial students. As a result of these discussions, we are now in talks of implementing a Recruitment Consultant module within their studies for aspiring Recruiters!

We’re continuously looking at ways to give back to our local community, and what better way than working with the future workforce!

Over the next week, Lorraine is meeting with Chelmsford College’s careers team to discuss how Pursuit can further help students from providing coaching and mentoring through to participating in lecturers. Our next blog shall provide you with an update on the discussions and the next steps that we are taking!
