Project Description

Cake, Coffee and Careers

On 16th June, DYW Fife hosted its Cake, Coffee and Careers session at Dunfermline Athletic Football Club.

The morning was an opportunity for local businesses to find out a bit more about DYW Fife and the different employability programmes that are running in the area.

During the event, delegates attended two 30-minute sessions with a representative from either Career Ready, Apprenticeships or Hand Picked from CR Smith. During these sessions they learned more what each of the programmes do and what the benefits are for their business getting involved in helping deliver the programmes. This also provided a great opportunity for our delegates to network with each other.

The morning was a huge success and had over 25 attendees from businesses across Fife including BAE, Balfour Beatty, Campion Homes, DPS Group, Ember Technology, Fife College, Flexcon, Forth Tech, Fife Gingerbread, Henderson Logie, Kingdom Group, Reel Service, Skills Development Scotland, TDC Parsons, HR Booth and Vilana Natural Beauty.

Amanda Liddell, DYW Fife’s Business Engagement Executive, organised the event and said:

“DYW Fife is employer led and it is so important to us to build and maintain relationships with local business leaders and educate them, not only on the work we already do but more importantly, on how they can get involved in providing career opportunities for Fife’s young people.”
