Steve meets with young unemployed people at the home of Cadbury in Bournville.


Steve McCabe MP met with young unemployed people at the home of Cadbury in Bournville as part of the Feeding Britain’s Future initiative.


This week Kraft Foods is giving around 90 young unemployed people from the Birmingham area an opportunity to gain the skills they need to get back into work, as part of Feeding Britain’s Future initiative.


Working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus in Birmingham, local youngsters are being given the opportunity to try a diverse range of activities at Bournville, home of Cadbury Dairy Milk, to help them develop their employability skills and improve their chances of getting a job.


The activities include a one to one CV and interview workshop lead by volunteers from the business, a presentation in the form of a day in the life of an apprentice as well as a tour of the chocolate manufacturing factory and the skills needed to become a chocolate taster.


Steve McCabe, local MP, said: “There were many talented young unemployed people at this event, some were understandably a bit pessimistic about their job opportunities. It was encouraging to see them engaging with Kraft and its employees, getting advice for CV writing and job interviews from recruiters is invaluable.


“It was really great to see so many of Kraft’s employees taking time out of their working day to come and share their experiences with the young people and offer them first hand advice.”


Feeding Britain’s Future is the first initiative of its kind, giving young people access to farms, factories and stores, and first hand knowledge of the skills needed for a career in the food industry or elsewhere. Young people will benefit from a wide range of training activities such as presentation and interview tips.
