Also working in partnership with West London Job Centre Plus, Uxbridge Skills Store and Uxbridge Forward, Kraft Foods offered them the chance to try a diverse range of activities at the UK&I Head Office in Uxbridge Business Park. The aim was to help them develop their employability skills and improve their chances of getting a job.

The activities included a one-to-one CV and interview workshop led by volunteers from within the business, a lively trading game testing their selling prowess as well as learning the skills needed to become a chocolate taster.

Among the young people at the event were those being supported by Uxbridge College to find work through the Government’s Work Programme, and others hoping to start apprenticeships when a relevant vacancy becomes available.

Feeding Britain’s Future is the first initiative of its kind, giving young people access to farms, factories and stores, and firsthand knowledge of the skills needed for a career in the food industry or elsewhere. Young people will benefit from a wide range of training activities such as presentation and interview tips.

David Oliver, Corporate Affairs Director, Kraft Foods UK&I, said: “We are delighted to be able to play our part in this major UK initiative. We fully support Skills for Work Week and hope this day will inspire these young people in their search for future employment. Our aim is that they find it both an informative and interesting day with us.”

Joanne Denney-Finch OBE, Chief Executive of IGD, the leading source of information and best practice on the consumer goods industry worldwide, said: “The food and grocery industry is the UK’s biggest employer and we’re committed to playing our part in tackling youth unemployment. We’ve consulted both businesses and young people to identify where the skills gaps lie and what the barriers to employment are. We hope the development opportunities on offer will help the young unemployed on the journey towards finding a job.”
