What do Moray employers say about us?

DYW Moray is a great chance for employers to get involved in promoting their business and just as importantly, Moray.

So many of our younger people leave the area with the impression that there are no opportunities for them here in Moray.

We as employers, can change this by just spending a bit of time speaking to them and getting involved with some simple activities to help change this perception. Employers can also benefit from network- ing with their peers.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my involvement with DYW and can safely say that the interaction I and my fellow solicitors have had with the school pupils at both careers events and in the classroom has been very rewarding. The links between even primary school children and employers are very valuable and provide a bridge between education and the workplace which barely existed in the past

I would recommend the experience to any employer to get into the schools and share their knowledge with the pupils. I am constantly surprised by how much the children know about certain types of jobs and this service can only improve that knowledge..
