Flying to Success

Bromley Education Business Partnership (BEBP), a part of the London Borough of Bromley, has been delivering a Youth Employment Scheme to help young people (16-24) to access confirmed employment. The programme provides employability support to young Bromley residents in the form of CV advice and interview practice to help them make a successful transition to permanent employment. Over 100 young people have benefited since 2015 and been placed in a range of local and national apprenticeship and employment opportunities.

Charlotte left sixth form last year and was referred to us through a colleague. Despite having good qualifications, she had been unable to find her ‘dream job’ but was working hard in local restaurants.  We met with her and gave her some advice to improve her CV as well as offering her a mock interview.  It was obvious she had great customer service skills and could develop these further into a future career.  Bromley EBP were made aware of an apprenticeship opportunity at London Biggin Hill Airport and suggested she apply.  The rest is history as they say! 

Sally Powell, FBO Manager at London Biggin Hill Airport said “We are delighted that the Bromley Youth Employment Scheme has given us Charlotte!  Charlotte produced an excellent application form and CV and performed exceptionally at interview.  She is a bright new addition to our team and her enthusiasm to develop her existing skills and adapt them to the unique world of business aviation is outstanding.  Employing a young, fresh individual to enhance an experienced team is something all employers should give consideration to’.

Charlotte started her job as Executive Passenger Handling Agent on 18th April 2017 and we wish her every success in the role.
