We're helping young people get onto the career ladder...

Open Today

09:00 - 22:00

We’re giving 16 to 24-year-olds in Edinburgh the chance to embark on a free five-week training programme, designed to provide them with the skills they need to build a successful career in retail or hospitality.

The ‘Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail and Hospitality’ programme gets underway in September and will combine classroom teaching alongside work placements at one of Fort Kinnaird’s retail, food and beverage or leisure brands. At the end of the scheme, trainees will receive their formal qualifications at an official celebration event.

Throughout the course, trainees will also get access to training from industry experts, support with interviews and CV writing, as well as a personal mentor.

The new programme will be funded by our co-owner British Land, and delivered in partnership with The Source Skills Academy – a leading centre of excellence for retail and customer service training.

To take part, young people need to sign up to the taster session on 2nd August 2017, which will provide them with a flavour of what the programme will involve and an opportunity to speak to some of the course leaders. 

Liam Smith, Centre Director at Fort Kinnaird, said: “The Bright Lights Starting Out in Retail and Hospitality programme is a fantastic way for young, unemployed people in Edinburgh to discover their potential and gain valuable experience of what it’s like to work in the dynamic retail and hospitality sectors.

“The programme coincides with busy recruitment periods at the centre so we, together with our retailers, can’t wait to welcome the new trainees and offer them on-the-job training and support so they can really kickstart their careers.”

John T Gibson, Business Development Manager, Recruitment and Skills Centre, said: “We’re giving local young people the chance to obtain nationally recognised qualifications and work experience at some of the country’s biggest retail and hospitality brands.

“We urge Edinburgh’s young jobseekers to sign up to attend our taster session on 2nd August 2017, where they’ll get the chance to learn more about the course and hear about our many success stories first-hand.”
