Shea Williams, the Deputy Young Mayor of Croydon, said: “I’m passionate about making sure young people are clear about their options for the future and helping them to take their next steps, which is why I made this event one of my priorities. It’s also the day before GCSE results day.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming attendees and employers to the event and know the panel discussion will inspire the young people attending.”
“Our young people have limitless potential and there are so many opportunities for them in the borough.
“This will be a real opportunity for young people to meet with some of our biggest employers who will be showcasing the roles they can offer, so I hope our young people come down to find out more.”
