Calderdale & Kirklees Graduate Talent Pool

Published 9th Oct 2012 by Rebecca Walker

C&K Careers are currently working with 150 recent graduates engaged on the Graduates Opportunity Programme (GO) to support them into work.

The DWP funded programme provides mentoring support alongside focussed workshops delivered by The University of Huddersfield and is proving very successful.

28 of the GO graduate cohort have already secured employment and the feedback from the successful participants was that the programme enabled them to communicate effectively to employers the skills and abilities they had without giving stock answers or spin which the employers appreciated.

The graduates on the GO programme are all Calderdale and Kirklees residents seeking work regionally and nationally in addition to exploring local opportunities. They have degrees in a diverse range of disciplines, from Mechanical Engineering to Law awarded from a range of Universities from Durham to Brunel. What they all have in common is that they form a pool of local talent that employers are keen to recruit from and the GO programme is successfully supporting them to access these opportunities.

For further information or if any employers would like to promote their opportunities to the GO ‘talent pool’ please contact Cathy Denney Adult Services Manager C&K Careers 01484 226753 cathy.denney@ckcareers.org.uk
