Employability Skills

AkzoNobel Graduate programme 7th - 9th September 2014 - 946

Getting a permanent job has never been harder for school leavers or graduates, and it’s easy for young people to feel defeated before they start.

Our three-day Preparation for Employment programme enhances many of their skills, such as taking responsibility, working autonomously and being clear about their own strengths and weaknesses.

The importance of communication and team-working is another facet that we focus on, so that they can take their place successfully within the world of employment. We want them to be perceived as go-getters, who are capable of motivating themselves and others around them.

Young people find this programme empowering, and we know it can give them the edge in a competitive job market.
