Right from the beginning, Impact has been committed to our community and in particular students from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds, because believe that it’s important that we give back to our future generations.
Soon after the pandemic was over, we quickly began to reemphasise our long-lasting commitment to our community partners and in particular the local schools which we have built up a good relationship with.
Over the past 5 years, we’ve developed a particularly strong relationship with Pimlico Academy and our team has utilised their skills and experience to assist students in many areas of their future development. Including hosting mock interviews and working with the school’s career development team to offer work experience to their sixth-form students.
Most recently we have been working with the students on their confidence and skills as they approach the time in their lives when they will be looking at joining the world of work.
Earlier in the summer, Impact hosted a collection of students at Impact HQ and conducted mock job interviews with each student. And more recently, 5 of our consultants attended the school to conduct a CV and career workshop session for several of their classes.
Our team showed the students how to write a brilliant CV, provided in-depth interview tips and conducted a general Q&A on starting out on a successful career journey.
Both were hugely successful and the feedback we received was unanimously positive. We hope we helped the students to gain knowledge on how to apply themselves to the world of work and give them the confidence they need to be a success!
