A campaign which promotes and celebrates diversity in the workplace takes place later this month across Scotland.
The ‘A Job for Everybody’ campaign runs throughout the week Monday 16 – Friday 20 November 2020 and will be celebrated by Developing the Young Workforce groups across Scotland.
We teamed up with Skills Development Scotland at the weekend to attend a careers fair for local young people who are, or have been, care experienced.
The event was organised by the Children and Families Team at Orkney Health and Care (OHAC) and was a chance for young people to meet employers in a relaxed and informal environment and learn more about some of the different jobs that are available with businesses in Orkney. SDS and ourselves provided information about career management skills, CV writing and information on the different learning and training pathways available.
The final video we are sharing this week as part of the A Job for Everybody campaign features Harry, who tells us how he secured a job at Sunnybrae as a Kitchen Assistant.
In this video we hear from Harry and his manager, Sally. They tell us a bit about what Harry does in his role, how the Employment Support team helped him secure employment and the positive impact working has on him.
We are sharing a second video today as part of the national DYW Scotland campaign, A Job for Everybody.
This social media campaign - which runs from Monday 11-Friday 15 November - has been set up to show the barriers that some people can face when it comes to getting a job. These include those relating to disability, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion.
Along with DYW Groups across Scotland, DYW Orkney are supporting the new national DYW Scotland social media campaign, A Job for Everybody.
This campaign has been set up to show the barriers that some people can face when it comes to getting a job. These include those relating to disability, gender, sexual orientation, race and religion.
