International law firm Pinsent Masons has been named Corporate Partner of the Year at the 2015 Tomorrow’s People Awards for Achievement.
Tomorrow’s People is an innovative employability charity which transforms young people’s lives through work. Over the past thirty years the charity has helped nearly half a million people into employment, education or training.
The awards celebrate firms that have shown commitment and dedication to supporting Tomorrow’s People, as well as many of the extraordinary people of all ages who have overcome significant obstacles, such as homelessness, to get themselves into work.
Pinsent Masons has worked with Tomorrow’s People for over two decades, focussing in particular on supporting some of the 16-24 year olds that work with the charity in both London and Scotland. Pinsent Masons’ partnership with Tomorrow’s People centres on supporting the ‘Working It Out’ programme, which includes a comprehensive employee volunteering programme which delivers skills-based workshops (CV writing, interview preparation), mentoring, CV checking and mock interviews. The firm’s staff also fundraise for the charity by undertaking various sporting challenges. Tomorrow’s People has also inspired the firm’s living wage support services work experience programme (called SORTED).
Richard Foley, Pinsent Masons’ senior partner, says:
“Our work with Tomorrow’s People represents a long-term commitment to inspiring young lives, by improving academic achievement, raising aspirations and creating better life chances for young people living in some of the most socially deprived areas of the UK. We are incredibly proud to have been working in partnership with Tomorrow’s People for over twenty years and look forward to continuing to working together in the years ahead to help create opportunities for the next generation”.
