A recruitment firm is celebrating the first anniversary of a training academy for young people.

Last year Total Assist in Eastern Road, Romford, invited 12 trainees through its doors and taught them how to be the best in the business.

Now that one-off course has become an institution.

Sue Price-Hardy has been in the business for many years and is in charge of internal recruitment at Total Assist.

“We are targeting young people who are looking to get into the industry,” she explained.

“It can be hard to get a job if you have no experience and we are offering that experience.”

The academy is an intensive nine week course and those who complete it are offered a job.
