New Recruit for Chamber

RENFREWSHIRE Chamber has been supporting Renfrewshire Councils’ The Recruit since it started in 2010.

Based loosely around the BBC’s The Apprentice, a number of secondary school leavers undertake a summer of business-related challenges.

The top recruits win real, paid jobs for a year – with the Chamber offering the position of management trainee.

This year’s winner was Alison Fraser from Elderslie who went to Johnstone High.

Commenting on her Recruit experience, Alison said: “Throughout The Recruit programme, I made many new friends, gained various different skills and greatly improved my confidence. And of course I won my job in the Chamber – which I still can’t believe I got.

“Being at the Chamber for a month, it has opened my mind to many diverse aspects of work and I have been introduced to many influential people who have given me great advice.

“Throughout my year here, I hope to meet many more fascinating people, hear about their businesses and how they have achieved their success. After my year at the Chamber, I plan on going to The University of the West of Scotland to study Social Sciences.”
