A nationwide campaign to tackle youth unemployment is hitting Greenford.
Tata Global Beverages is participating in the Feeding Britain’s Future project and will offer skills training as part of a country wide initiative by the food and grocery industry.
Youngsters from Greenford have the opportunity to gain skills they need to get into work by visiting the global beverage business and owner of the Tetley brand in the UK which is open on Tuesday (September 24) and next Monday (30).
Feeding Britain’s Future, led by research charity IGD, gives young people access to farms, factories and stores.
Youngsters from Greenford will be attending a number of workshops to help them enhance their employability.
Participants will also be taken on a tour around the premises and will have the chance to participate in interactive tea tasting sessions, to spend the afternoon with Customer Services and look behind the scenes to learn about the birth and legacy of the Tetley Tea Folk in Marketing, to see how the business is run and the wide range of careers available.
Joanne Denney-Finch, chief executive of IGD, said: “The UK food and grocery industry employs 3.7 million people - making us Britain’s biggest private sector employer. With that scale comes responsibility - we have a vital role to play in tackling youth unemployment by sharing our advice and experience.
“We hope young people from in and around Greenford will make the most of this opportunity and grow their confidence.”
Tata Global Beverages is based in Oldfield Lane North. For more information visit: www.tataglobalbeverages.com
