An employer's experience of working with Nacro service users.

“I would recommend Nacro to any other employer who is looking to recruit a young person and invest in our local community.”

We at Baches are proud to be working with Nacro in the apprenticeship scheme. We are proud to say that with joint support from Nacro and Baches, our new office junior, Maya, has achieved good skills in English, maths, ICT and customer service and we have secured a good employee.

Maya continues to grow in confidence and is building on her skills and is now working towards level 3. I would recommend Nacro to any other employer who is looking to recruit a young person and invest in our local community.

Currys/PC World has had a successful and close working relationship with Nacro for the past nine years.

We have recruited a total of 10 new staff from Nacro who are loyal, hard-working and committed members of our team. Having the facility to work with a young person and to be able to have time to help an individual develop has allowed us to identify attributes in young people which may not have been instantaneously apparent during the normal recruitment process. It has also provided additional opportunities for our own staff to gain further skills and experience and make progress whilst supervising and supporting young people.

We would highly recommend Nacro for their support in helping to resource potential members of staff.

Kara Harrison, Barclays, Manchester

My professional relationship with Nacro has been for the past two years. I visited a Nacro centre in Manchester to complete an employer engagement activity and worked with the students there to show them different career pathways within Barclays Bank, and what would be expected of them if they were to take up a placement with us.

Shortly after my visit, I was approached by Nacro to take on a student for a work placement. Emma visited our branch and we set up a placement for her. The placement lasted for six weeks and was for one day a week. The communication from Nacro was excellent throughout and they supported the young person from start to finish.

I would have no hesitation in continuing to work with Nacro in relation to future placements.
