Arrows Group are delighted to announce the formalisation of our partnership with youth empowerment organisation, 2020 Change. Founded in 2013, 2020 Change is dedicated to bridging the gap between education and employment, by delivering 10-weekly training programmes that support young people of colour by equipping them with the tools they need to flourish in the world of work.
Building upon an existing relationship with Major Players, this newly formed partnership will extend across several of the Majar Group brands too including Arrows Group Global and BOOSTA; supporting our collective efforts in helping our clients across the creative and tech industries, with attracting, engaging, and retaining talent from ethnic minorities.
As part of the partnership, the Majar Group will be supporting the ‘I AM CHANGE’ programme, designed to help 17–30-year-olds, specifically those from disadvantaged backgrounds, discover and fulfil their potential during 10 weekly sessions exploring topics such as leadership and responsibility, success, and motivation as well as mindfulness. The group will be supporting the programme by delivering practical CV and cover letter writing tips, as well as interview techniques.
Furthermore to the ‘I AM CHANGE’ programme, the Majar Group will be supporting 2020 Change with their newly launched recruitment solution, in addition to providing space for events, and corroborating on jobs fairs and graduations.
Duro Oye, Founder of 20/20 Change said, “We are super excited to formalise our partnership with Majar Group who have been huge supporters of our work since early 2021. Not only will this partnership expose our alumni network to new opportunities within the Creative, Marketing and Tech industries but it will also help 20/20 Change expand our recruitment and consultancy arm 20/20 Talent. I would like to thank the senior leadership team at Majar Group for believing in our vision of reducing youth unemployment and how it affects those from underrepresented ethnic groups.”
Group Commercial Director, Rosa Rolo confirmed the partnership and extends, “We so delighted to expand our partnership with 2020Change across Majar group – what Duro and the team do is fantastic and the fact we can now facilitate cross collaboration between Arrows Group Global, BOOSTA and Major Players should not only benefit the candidates but our clients too.”
