Five young people from Hyndland Secondary school have been offered permanent part time employment at Sainsbury’s in Drumchapel following successful temporary posts over the Christmas period.
Sainsbury’s, who are the lead business partner for Hyndland Secondary, had committed to offering school pupils temporary work over the festive season, and after interviewing eight young people for the posts, they were so pleased with the calibre of the candidates, all eight were offered positions.
Following the completion of a two-day induction prior to starting their roles, the young people were allocated 12 hours per week working across different departments of the store including checkout, grocery and fresh replenishment.
The five young who were offered permanent posts have now been given a 12 hour contract and it is hoped they can undertake additional hours during holiday periods.
“As part of our partnership with Hyndland Secondary, we are delighted to offer opportunities to local young people. We were so pleased with the positive attitude and eagerness from the pupils that we offered five of them permanent part time roles within our Drumchapel store”
Sandy Loch, HR Manager, Sainsbury’s Drumchapel
As well as offering these seasonal roles, Sainsbury’s have also offered a one week work placement opportunity for four additional Hyndland pupils.
“I was really nervous when Sainsbury’s interviewed me but I had prepared and researched and feel this really helped me. I started with two shifts in the store and I am so pleased that I have now been offered a part time role. I am really enjoying it and everyone is really nice and friendly”
Derek Grocutt, Hyndland Secondary
