Leading property consultants Bidwells is working in partnership with Cambridge United Community Trust (CUCT), the charitable arm of Cambridge United Football Club, to help support employability across the region.
While CUCT already delivers educational events and secondary school workshops that align with the national careers curriculum, Bidwells sponsorship will enable a whole new strand of inspiring activities to extend its work.
Danny Kerrigan, Community Trust Manager, states:
“Bidwells’ support will allow us to continue to develop our employability work, which aims to broaden the possibilities young people in Cambridgeshire perceive for their future, as well as providing an extra source of inspiration – we are delivering more with thanks to Bidwells.”
Richard Pilsworth, Head of Bidwells Cambridge, said of the collaboration:
“Bidwells is delighted to support Cambridge United Community Trust by teaming up as a corporate partner. The charity has an immense impact on helping the local community and we are proud to play a role in supporting its vital work.
“Cambridge has been home to Bidwells for 177 years and we strive to support our local community wherever we can. CUCT’s innovate approach to helping others is one we fully admire and we were keen to come on-board and work with this charity, which has such a positive impact on so many young lives.”
Employability in action at CUFC is about delivering projects across key themes for external and adult mainstream education opportunities – those seeking employment can enhance skills with elements that include everything from creating a CV, learning interview techniques and understanding application processes to far more focused activities such as a computer coding.
Sam Jeffery, Commercial Manager, commented:
“Cambridge United is honoured to partner with Bidwells, one of the leading property consultants in the UK. Bidwells is highly regarded for its industry-leading work in the education and science and technology sectors, and we believe that the collaboration between Cambridge United, Cambridge United Community Trust and such a hugely respected firm will provide benefits throughout the local community and beyond.”
