We are so excited to announce that we have been shortlisted for the ‘Innovation Award’ at the Northern Power Women Awards 2022.

 

Thank you to The Girls Network for nominating us as a result of attending – and trialling – our Volunteer Cohort Days.

 

Volunteer Cohort Days

We created this initiative to provide women with valuable voluntary experience that will increase their employability. Previous cohorts have sorted clothing donations, prepared for our upcoming sales and remerchandised our mannequins. Examples of transferable skills gained during the day include teamwork, communication, visual merchandising, organisation and commercial awareness.

As part of the day attendees receive a one-to-one coaching session with one of our interview coaches, where they can discuss CV’s, applying for jobs, building confidence and entering the workplace (for the first time in many cases).

 

We are thrilled to have our Volunteer Cohort Days recognised for Innovation, thank you to The Girls Network and Northern Power Awards.
