Michelin Dundee hosts meeting preparing young people in city for work

More than 70 people from the Dundee business community attended a breakfast meeting hosted by Michelin yesterday when they learned how they could have a role in preparing young people in the city for the world of work.

The event – also attended by secondary school pupils – was a joint venture between Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce, Career Ready, Breakthrough and Developing the Young Workforce Dundee and Angus (DYW).

Breakthrough and Career Ready are newly-established in Dundee and the support of local businesses and volunteer mentors who believe in helping young people reach their potential is crucial for both organisations.

Alison Henderson, chief executive of the chamber of commerce, who chaired the event, said: “I am passionate that business is given an opportunity to connect with young people.”
