Dimensions support 300 young people at Co-op Academy Manchester

Dimensions' Commercial Director, Ian, and Senior Account Manager, Keith, volunteered their time on 11th June 2024 to support 300 young people during mock interviews at Co-op Academy Manchester.

As part of the Co-op's Goods Not For Resale Policy, the mock interviews help drive forward social values and employment education for young people. As a supplier, Dimensions commits to continuous improvement toward compliance with the environmental, human rights, and labour standards specified by the Co-op.

The Co-op Academy Manchester, located in Blackley, hosted the mock interview initiative for their 300-strong cohort of Year 10 students. Ian and Keith joined over 40 representatives from the worlds of work, education, higher education, and the wider community, offering professional expertise and feedback. For most of the students, it was their first experience with a professional interview. The initiative aimed to prepare them for their future professional and career journeys after they leave academic studies.

Dimensions fully supports the Co-op Academies Trust's commitment to their Career Education, Information, Advice, and Guidance (CEIAG) programme, offering young people career and personal development opportunities. This engagement not only benefits the students, but also aligns with Dimensions' corporate social responsibility goals, reinforcing the importance of community involvement and sustainable business practices. By participating in such events, Dimensions demonstrates its dedication to fostering a skilled and prepared future workforce, reflecting the company's broader values of integrity, growth, and community support.
