A team of consultants from Cobalt Recruitment recently volunteered for Centrepoint, the leading charity for young homeless people. Cobalt organised the first in a series of CV workshops in order to assist young adults, who are looking to secure employment.

Centrepoint Cobalt cv workshop

The interactive session kicked off with introductions from the young adults explaining a bit more about any work experience they had done so far and what they were ultimately looking to do in the future. For the rest of the afternoon, the group was split into two workshops to focus on job seeking techniques.

This involved the participants devising CVs for famous celebrities, reviewing CV bloopers to avoid and a Q&A session on covering letters and interview techniques.

Mary Ann Eddleston, Recruiter at Cobalt Recruitment comments:
“I was impressed with the seven youngsters that we met on the day. It was fantastic to be able to use our skills in a practical way towards helping Centrepoint beyond our other fundraising activities. We look forward to continuing these workshops to support even more young adults who are being supported by Centrepoint.”

Zaid Gittens, Employment Officer at Centrepoint comments:
“Thanks again for helping out our young people, they all got a great deal out of the session. We are delighted that you are happy to help out again.”
