Bethnal Green Spear Centre
At our London office, we appreciate how fortunate we are to have an office in the heart of the city and we are aware of the poverty and need in our neighbouring boroughs and community. We are honoured to support Spear, a charity that provides six-week training courses to unemployed young people aged 16 – 25 years. The charity has an impressive 75% success rate of helping people into work or education.
Working together with the Bethnal Green Spear Centre in Tower Hamlets, we have developed an exciting and impactful volunteering programme to help unemployed young people onto the career ladder using our collective skillset. Sessions include Smash that Interview and Cracking a Cold Call. Young people attend the sessions in professional dress and work with the volunteers at our offices over looking the wonderful views of St Pauls and the City.
“Spear is so excited to have been selected as BrightPool’ charity partner. Support for our newly-launched Bethnal Green Spear centre is so valued; we look forward to seeing the partnership grow in 2015.”
Lydia Mantle, Spear
