Saints FC visit Westquay

11 Jan 2017

On the 14th of December, young members from the Saints Foundation visited Westquay shopping centre to participate in a tour of the development and engage in CV writing workshops.

The foundation supported by Saints Football Club allows young people to acquire the necessary help needed for job preparation and further their careers.

The workshop was focused on improving their CV’s and writing skill inspiring young people on what they could include on their CV that may not necessarily be work experience; volunteering, looking after an elderly relative, captain of the school football team to demonstrate leadership and so forth.

Several of those attending were NEET’s who are in need of such help. 

David Warnes, Works Project Officer at Southampton FC said “Just want to say thank you very much for allowing our participants to visit earlier today! The experience was great – allowing participants the opportunity to see a new development that will be utilised by everyone living in the Southampton area. The opportunity for the participants to pick up some tips on creating a great CV was a positive experience and ideal support for them to develop in their search for employment”.
