At the Showroom and Workstation we have worked with Sheffield Hallam University to provide volunteer opportunities for the last 7-8 years. We started by taking on one person for a set day a week to assist with administrative tasks in the office, a role which due to their hard work has developed into a full time apprenticeship position. Without them being involved we couldn’t have proven that a full time position was required. Last academic year we ended up with four students all working on the operational side of our business and are currently recruiting for assistance this year. I am pleased to say that every placement that we have had have been professional and a credit to SHU. We keep in touch with them all and are pleased that they have all developed successful careers which we hope is partly to do with their time here.
