Britain’s first new High Street bank in over 100 years, Metro Bank, has joined forces with Uxbridge College to become their latest Employer Champion.
The Employer Champion scheme at the College in West London provides opportunities for both students and businesses through a range of partnership activities.
Employers contribute in many ways, including providing work experience and giving guest talks, and advising on the content of assignments and ‘branding’ the work with their company name.
As part of its Employer Champion work with Uxbridge College, Metro Bank will provide work experience placements, run careers and skills workshops for students, and support young people in opening and managing bank accounts.
Lorraine Collins, Executive Director of Enterprise and Development at Uxbridge College, said: “We are delighted to have Metro Bank as our latest Employer Champion to provide support to the College and our students. It is so important that young people learn as much as they can about the real world of work to enable them to fulfill their potential. It also helps local employers ensure that the workforce of the future understands the skills that employers need. If any other employers are interested in becoming Employer Champions, please get in touch.
”Neil MacDonald, Local Director of Metro Bank Uxbridge said: “We’re thrilled to be named an Employer Champion, supporting the inspiring work done by Uxbridge College. Metro Bank works hard to be an important part of the local community, and the people of Uxbridge have welcomed us with open arms. This partnership demonstrates our dedication to both financial education and providing career opportunities for local people.”
