Slingsby Partners begins a third year working with Career Ready

For the last two years, Slingsby Partners has partnered with the charity Career Ready. We have so far provided insight and support to 8 young people through 1-to-1 mentoring. This year, Anna, Verity and Sam will continue this work with three new mentees. Each of the mentees will gain an introduction to the business world for the next 12 months.

Career Ready is a national social mobility charity which works with a network of employers and educators to give young people an insight into the business world. Career Ready targets young people whose background means that they need a platform to reach their potential.

Slingsby Partners is supporting Career Ready again by providing 1-to-1 monthly mentoring to a group of three young people, selected by Career Ready, who are studying at colleges in London. This year we are working with three new colleges based in Southwark, Archway, and Woolwich – giving us the opportunity to make an impact across London. Working with these colleges gives us a great opportunity to give back to the local community. The proximity to our office also allows us to invite the young people into the office to experience office life, and in particular the legal profession, first-hand. Our three mentors may not only be providing careers advice, but may also support the mentees with their plans for further education.
