Exeter based business Endorse HR are helping young people from Devon Army Cadet Force take charge of their future. The business is teaming up with local Cadets to provide careers advice and expertise.
Endorse HR, based in Exeter, is working with the Army Cadet Force in Devon to help provide young people prepare for the workplace, by teaching them important employability skills such as interview techniques.
The seminar is part of the Army Cadet Force initiative Pathways4Cadets, in association with Skills Group, which offers Cadets and young adult volunteers a new pathway into employment or apprenticeships. The initiative is free of charge and helps to translate the skills young people gain in the Army Cadet Force into benefits employers and further education organisations can understand.
Endorse HR had pledged to support the Armed Forces Community, by signing the Armed Forces Covenant in July 2015 and committing to support veterans, service spouses and partners and Reservists.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation, ensuring that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. Businesses, from sole-trader to multinational, public bodies or charities who wish to support the Armed Forces community can sign the Covenant and publicly declare their commitments.
