​NEPO hosts employability workshop for high school students

NEPO welcomed students from St. Cuthbert’s Catholic High School (Newcastle) to its offices to take part in an Employability Workshop.

The event (held 21 June) was organised by EY Foundation, in partnership with the Government Commercial Function, and provided the students with an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of careers and develop soft skills within a business environment.

Steven Sinclair, Procurement & Commercial Director at NEPO said:

“The workshop was a great opportunity for NEPO and other public sector bodies to meet with the next generation of our workforce. The students impressed us with their maturity and enthusiasm, and I hope that their participation will encourage them to consider careers in public sector procurement.”
