Insight Into… Our Morning at Mustard Tree
Insight Into… Our Morning at Mustard Tree.
Last week a group of our employees put down the phones, halted the BD’s and paused the target chasing to spend their morning getting stuck in to a worthy cause.
Upon arrival we set about hosting a workshop in the IT suite offering guests assistance and advice on CV’s, interview skills and job applications. The turnout was an overwhelming success and each attendee received one to one help from our recruiters – it was amazing to see the impact spending time with and listening to each individual had on their confidence! As recruiters we recognise that employment has the potential to change the path of a person’s life. A huge part of this process relies on individuals having a well written CV and entering an interview feeling self-assured and prepared. For us, the opportunity to offer our skills and invest time into helping people in some of the most crucial areas of what is a potentially life changing program, is invaluable.
Mustard Tree are an incredible charity here in Manchester, tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty and homelessness. Having recently moved into a new building, the transformation the organisation has undergone is truly phenomenal. The new space offers a huge art studio brimming with colourful masterpieces, a performance space that plays host to a sing song club audible all the way from Granada Studios and countless meeting rooms that allow for the running of integral 1-2-1 mentoring programs. Alongside all those amazing facilities, the new building also offers a brand-new reception, café, kitchen and shop that helps guests gain important work experience and skills to improve their confidence and employability. To complete the services Mustard Tree provides, the building also features a fitness suite that enables the charity to encourage health and well-being, a ping-pong table that offers guests some light relief and finally a respite area for those who are vulnerable to take a load off.
The day was extremely rewarding for everyone involved here at Insight and we couldn’t be prouder to be working with such a life changing charity. A huge thank you to Sophie at Mustard Tree for allowing us to be a part of the great work that they do every single day – we’re looking forward to the next workshop already!
