Digital leaders and recruiters - volunteer
to hear how young people want
to be engaged to consider digital careers

12 Aug, 21


Vanquis Bank and Ahead Partnership are working with a group of young people who will help us understand how to interest and engage them to think about a career in the digital sector on 1st October as part of Leeds Digital Festival.

Business volunteers are invited to sign up to understand what young people think of digital skills and help them understand the opportunities they hold.

When: 1 October 2021
Time: 10am – 12pm
Location: Online so you can take part from work or home

This new virtual event will open with the opportunity to understand secondary school students’ perceptions of the sector and what may be done to better engage the talent pipeline. Volunteers will take the young people involved through a series of interactive tasks and discussion points, all aiming to encourage them to share their ideas and opinions.

The event will then close with a Q&A opportunity for the students to find out more from business attendees about apprenticeships, graduate schemes and early career opportunities.

Ahead Partnership will facilitate the session, provide a full briefing before the event and a member of our team will be happy to have a call to discuss the session in more detail.
