      Bidwells announce new partnership with Inspire to Ignite

      We are delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with Inspire to Ignite. As our brand new sponsor for the next 12 months, we are thrilled to collaborate on such a transformative initiative.

      As part of this partnership, Inspire 2 Ignite will be working collaboratively with our talent team to offer a unique and incredible opportunity for young people to embed themselves in the company this summer via a 5-day work experience programme.

      Participants experiencing or at risk of becoming NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training), aged between 16 and 24, will be able to design their very own town and gain hands-on experience in every aspect of our operations and departments.

      We're thrilled to be able to offer this unique experience and can't wait to see the impact it has on the young people involved. Thank you, Bidwells, for your support and commitment to empowering young people to unlock their potential and make a positive impact in their communities!

      Referring young talent

      In return, as part of this sponsorship, Inspire 2 Ignite will be organically referring young people to Bidwells all year round.

      This partnership will provide young people with an opportunity to explore their characteristics and build their knowledge in a real-life working environment, develop their confidence, and prepare them for a successful journey into the wider world.

      “We are excited to partner with Inspire 2 Ignite and provide young people with the opportunity to gain valuable experience in our industry. This partnership aligns with our commitment to support young people and inspire the next generation of talent,” said Gemma Pluck, Talent Acquisition Manager at Bidwells.

      The partnership will enable Inspire to Ignite to continue to deliver on its mission to empower young people and help bridge the skills gap in the industry, in particular through the ongoing work Curious About Construction.

      Bridging the gap

      Sam Squire, Lead Ignition Coach at Inspire 2 Ignite said, “It’s my mission to make sure young people are at the heart of every decision we and our partner make. That’s why we’ve already taken two of our Curious Entrepreneurs to meet with Bidwells to begin co-creating the programme. We are also thrilled that Bidwells have chosen a young person as their Ignite Champion, further showcasing their commitment to empowering and investing in the next generation.”

      I am excited to announce that I am now officially an Ignite Champion! I am proud to support and amplify the amazing work that Inspire 2 Ignite CIC is doing to provide life-changing support and inspiration to 10,000 young people this year.

      I have been uplifted by the positive impact the team have already made on the lives of young people and can't wait to be a part of this incredible journey as we continue to help the next generation realise their true long-term potential through entrepreneurial experiences and events.
