A helping hand onto a career path

A helping hand onto a career path

Tuesday, 19 June 2018

CR Smith is proud to run Hand Picked - Scotland’s only employability programme run by private businesses – helping young people gain new skills for employment.

For some 16-24 year olds, it can be tricky to find a job, especially if they’re unsure of what career they want to follow. However, throughout the years, we’ve helped many young people in Scotland find their way into different sectors and occupations.

We recently held a Hand Picked Academy with nine attendees aged 16-22. During the course, we welcomed Fife College lecturer, Frazer Walker to give an overview of careers in the construction industry as well as a tour of our own workshop, where CR Smith Apprentices are trained.

We’re delighted that five of the attendees have now gone on to secure positive outcomes including places at college on the Mechanical Engineering and Construction NC courses as well as jobs including Trainee Finance Assistant, Field Sales Agent and Apprentice Welder.

In July we will be running another Hand Picked Academy, so register your interest now by completing one of our applications in the Candidate section of the webiste.
