Rothwell Plumbing Services recently played host to a group of unemployed youngsters at their head office in Wigan. The group, all from the Salford area and members of the Fairbridge charity in Salford were given the opportunity to spend the day mixing with staff and seeing firsthand what goes on in a real working office environment.
The group were given a presentation about Rothwell Plumbing’s main activities and a talk on what employers are looking for when recruiting new staff. They were also given a full tour of the Wigan head office and warehouse facility where the youngsters showed great interest in the company’s various operations, in particular our vehicle tracking system and our comprehensive waste recycling programme. The teeenagers were given a demonstration on how our cardboard waste is baled and how we compact our bulky polystyrene waste products in preparation for recycling.
The day was finished off with a brief slideshow presentation on the renewable energy part of Rothwell Plumbing’s business which was followed by a quiz on the environment and renewable energy.
The winner of the quiz was presented with a gift voucher and the group were also presented with rucksacks containing several goodies donated by our local business partners and ourselves. The feedback from the group on their day at our office was very positive saying they had a brilliant day and found it very interesting and informative. We are now helping the youngsters to update their CV’s with the aim of making them more appealing to local employers.
