Working with Employers
The Pledge Employer Partnership
The Pledge Partnership gives employers direct access to work with young people, schools, and youth groups. Allowing employers to build visibility of their company, promote industry sectors and develop long-standing relationships with schools to build a talent pipeline.
With 100% mainstream schools and nearly 400 organisations engaged with the Pledge, the team works hard to understand employers’ objectives and match opportunities accordingly.
The Pledge Partnership is dedicated helping our employer partners build lasting relationships with their education communities to support their Corporate Social Responsibility agendas by helping students with careers.
Companies get involved for a variety of reasons:
- To enhance corporate social responsibility agenda
- Increase workforce diversity
- Expand business networks
- Future-proofing and increasing talent pipeline
- Build a local workforce and give back to the community
Working with us is completely flexible and there is no ongoing commitment.
The Cheshire and Warrington Pledge have taught us more about the education system and learnt about other initiatives to connect businesses with students. We have been given the opportunity to influence the future of the curriculum, especially with the introduction of T Levels. Working with students allows us to make informed decisions about our recruitment strategy
