Business Butler Kickstarts Careers
By: Business Butler
Business Butler Founder and CEO, Bhupinder Sidhu is excited at being able to be help kickstart young people's careers in the most challenging of times, as he explains here:
"Opportunities for youngsters these days seem to be few and far between compared to when I started my career. The training I received in my youth equipped me well for later life and spurred me on in my journey as an entrepreneur.
"If we can help the careers of youngsters by providing them with valuable training and work experience then they can learn transferrable skills that will set them up for a promising future."
Deb Barrow, Business Butler's HR Director, has been keen not only to give these young people a job placement for six months but also to support them with employability skills mentoring so that they can use the experience as a stepping-stone to their next job opportunity, which is exactly what Sophie Price is doing.
Sophie has secured a contract of employment following a successful six months working for Cybata Ltd - a member of the Business Butler panel of experts. Chris Roberts, Managing Director of Cybata Ltd is delighted with Sophie's contribution during her placement and says:
"Sophie joined us in September as a Social Media Assistant. Very quickly Sophie demonstrated her desire to learn and be involved in more than just social media work. Cybata is thrilled to have now been able to employ Sophie on a part-time basis beyond the period covered by the Kickstarter program - Sophie is a real asset to the business."
Business Butler also offers opportunities to students, as Deb Barrow explains:
"Every year we take on an intern from Swansea University. Last summer Lloyd joined us having just graduated with a degree from its School of Management. As his interest and specialist subject was marketing, he joined us in the role of Social Media Marketing Assistant.
"The experience and knowledge Lloyd gained at Business Butler has enabled him to start his dream career in marketing with a company closer to his home in east Wales."
The Kickstart scheme has closed and although it received mixed reviews, Business Butler is proof that by providing opportunities to participants through high-quality roles and ongoing support it can be a win-win situation for everyone.
