Welcoming Hampshire’s First Young Professional

Young Professional Jack Jennings

We are delighted to welcome Jack Jennings as Hampshire’s first Young Professional.

YEUK is a great organisation. There are so many young people, like myself, that don’t have an edge over the competition when finding a job. YEUK helps you put something on your CV that employers will find interesting, as well as teaching you the basic skills that you need in a workplace. Jack Jennings

Jack got to meet Caroline Dinenage, Gosport MP and Secretary at The Department for Education to talk all about his involvement with the scheme.

I was delighted to visit The Display Centre on Friday and meet Jack Jennings, one of my constituents, to personally congratulate him on his achievement. It was also very useful to meet with company director, Chris Jones, a great supporter of YEUK, to discuss with him how I might help to develop this very worthy scheme. Caroline Dinenage, Gosport MP and Secretary at The Department for Education

Twenty-year-old Jack, Operations Assistant at The Display Centre was supported and encouraged by company director Chris Jones. Chris has pledged to support YEUK by guaranteeing a telephone interview for any YEUK Young Professional who applies for a job at The Display Centre.
