Getting a new perspective on work opportunities
Inspiring young people to see the opportunities of a career in construction is always that much easier when it comes with an impressive view.
St George, the developer behind both One Blackfriars and One Tower Bridge in the neighbourhood, is a partner of the Young Theatre Makers, an employability programme run by Southwark charity London Bubble Theatre Company. The programme engages and inspires young unemployed people with theatre, and helps them gain important skills through bespoke training and work experience placements.
Since August 2015 St George has supported the Young Theatre Makers with a three year funding programme. This includes promoting jobs in construction to the young people through site visits to One Blackfriars and offering work experience placements.
