A Huge Thank You to the Fab People at FIT!
Last January we had the pleasure of working with Fastrack into Information Technology (FIT), providing young job-seekers from all over Ireland with advice on how best to present themselves at interviews.
Over the course of a week, we were privileged to host suiting and styling sessions on site at FIT’s Finglas premises. We could not have been made to feel more welcome – and we think it’s clear from the photos how much of a ball we had!
Our partnership with FIT focused on engaging with Youthreach participants across the country, inviting them to take part in styling workshops that not only gave them the clothes needed to succeed but also the essential skills, confidence and self-belief to empower them to reach their full potential.
We were truly overwhelmed by the generosity and support of this amazing organisation. A registered charity and not for profit organisation, FIT were the perfect collaborators for this Youthreach programme as they work hard to promote career development opportunities for anyone at risk of long-term unemployment. Empowering people who have become detached from the labour market, enabling greater access to employment for marginalised job seekers, FIT is committed – as we are – to making the workforce a more inclusive space for those who need it most.
As one of the most effective employability initiatives in Europe, having helped over 18,000 job seekers complete skills development programmes and over 13,500 of those having progressed into employment, we were delighted to have their support in hosting our suiting and styling workshops.
We had so much fun sharing interview skills and tips with the wonderful Youthreach students and hope they will carry these sessions with them into their futures.
We hope these photos convey some of the joy, laughter and newfound confidence that was shared amongst all our participants throughout our week with FIT. We hope we can continue to collaborate with FIT and other organisations to find more ways to equip women with the clothes, skills and confidence needed to succeed.
Thank you to everyone at FIT and Youthreach – here’s to Dressing for Success!
