Generation Next partner – Express Recruitment

Why are we partnering?

Theo and the team closely identified with the ethos of Generation Next from the outset, with two of its three directors being young leaders themselves. Generation Next need partner businesses who align with their vision and values and passion for building futures! For almost 40 years, Express Recruitment has championed young talent, with a strong commitment to its staff, recognising those with the drive, tenacity, and passion to succeed, and in return providing lifelong learning opportunities through apprenticeships, degree apprenticeships, industry qualifications, and so much more.

Like Express Recruitment, as a self-professed “group of forward thinkers”, Generation Next facilitate success in others, in turn, making a difference to the young professionals in our region every day. Express Recruitment wanted to be a part of that journey, supporting other young professionals to connect, grow, influence, and strive to be whatever they want to be, and achieve whatever they want to achieve, irrespective of preconceived barriers or that inner voice. Finally, the Express Recruitment team have already benefited from some of the fantastic free workshops, webinars, networking events, and peer networks on offer to members, and Theo became a Generation Next ambassador for mentoring this year and is keen to shout about the fantastic mentoring scheme available to all members.
