Jewson and Street League to Create 300 Jobs with UK-Wide Partnership


Jewson and Street League, a national charity that uses football to tackle youth unemployment, have announced a UK-wide partnership to create hundreds of job opportunities across the country.

The announcement follows the launch of a partnership in Scotland in 2015 that saw the builders’ merchant work with the charity to create placements for 100 young people and boost the uptake of apprenticeships across the country. Jewson is now pledging a further 300 work placements in its UK branches for 2016.

Street League uses the power of football to attract unemployed people aged 16 to 24 onto its award-winning Academy programme, of which there are 36 programmes running across the UK. On the course, participants develop key employability skills and acquire nationally recognised qualifications over a 10-week period. In the past five years, Street League has helped more than 4,200 young people get into employment, training and education.
