On Thursday 5th November we hosted our 4th Welcome to Retail event, as part of our commitment to supporting and nurturing future talent. In partnership with The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation, the Intermission Youth Theatre, Resurgo Spear and QPR in the Community Trust, we invited 15 students from different colleges around London to attend a full day of exciting workshops. To help support career development and prepare them for entering the working world.
Throughout the day we promoted the retail industry, opening the students eyes to the endless opportunities we have on offer. Inviting employees from Retail, Distribution and Support to interact with our participants, we wanted to give them a truly varied perspective of our business.
The day consisted of a Store Tour, CV Workshops, Inspirational Talks, Having Presence, Leading The Sale and more. Students were provided with a delicious lunch straight from our world renowned Food Hall and a free goodie bag to commemorate the day. One of the event organiser’s, Jessica Smith described the initiative as a huge success and the best to date.
Well done to the Welcome to Retail Team for hosting such a successful event and a massive thank you to all the wonderfully engaged students who took part!
