Capita Supports Next Generation of Jobseekers
Capita Managed IT Solutions, which recently announced it is creating 400 new jobs at its head office in Newtownabbey, is ensuring the next generation of jobseekers are best equipped for the world of work thanks to a mentoring programme for school leavers, running in partnership with Corpus Christi College.
With over half of the new jobs being offered to school leavers and graduates, Capita’s team of mentors seized the opportunity to work with a group of GCSE-level students who were interested in a career in the thriving ICT sector. The scheme, which is part of the Business in the Community, Business Class Programme, encourages students to develop their employability skills through presentation training, offers advice on interview techniques and develops general business awareness and acumen.
