I/We heard about the campaign through

The Federation of Small Businesses

I/We signed up to the Humber Skills Pledge because

We take on interns quite a lot and have found some good staff that way. We are involved in education so like to be involved in supporting people into work

How I/we see it benefitting the company/organisation

Involved in a worthwhile organisation. Interested in how it can support us. Would like to know more as this is new to us so feel a little unclear about the full picture of what this is all about.

How I/We see it benefitting the wider community / local economy

Currently have 1 intern and a potential 2nd starting next month

If you have recently started fulfilling one or more of the pledges since signing up, what are you doing?

If you were already fulfilling one or more of the pledges before signing up to the campaign, please tell us what you do

We have been giving work placements and internships to students for about 5 years

What would you say to someone thinking of supporting the campaign?
