Growing Talent 9 Commences!


3 May 2016 saw the employers initial selection.  Over 60 people were seen at De Vere’s Holborn Bars venue.

Initial employers selection

Companies present included Harrow Green, MitieTDM, Invest In Buy To Let, Portico, Pertemps and Aramark.


Each table was manned by a different employer who had a unique ice breaker question before opening up conversation to discover more about the personalities present.


JCP support on the day included Nigel, Suk & Anna seen below.Initial Selection support JCP

Over 20 people impressed the employers and were invited to return for a more substantial meeting with them on 5 May 2016.  Again at Holborn Bars, this time the pressure was increased with all tasked to deliver a timmed 60 second presentation on why they should be selected before 1-2-1 meetings with the employer took place.  Helping out this time from JobCentre Plus were Ade, Mo, Nigel & Anna.
