Global financial technology company TigerWit Limited announced its cooperation with Liverpool FC Foundation to support the club’s Premier League Works employment program.
The partnership’s aim is to help young adults explore their career aspirations and lead them on the route to employment.
LeapRate reminds that TigerWit teamed up with the FC back in September 2018.
The course will run for 5 weeks (May and June). Those who complete it will receive an employment certified qualification and benefit from 12 months follow up support, with the aim of giving them the best possible start towards employment.
Sharon Shahzad, Global Head of Marketing at TigerWit said:
One of TigerWit’s core values is to help improve financial literacy around the world, with the purpose of securing a stronger financial future for communities and improving quality of life. Partnering with LFC Foundation enables us to reach and empower young adults around the country, deepening their financial knowledge to help them on their way to a long-lasting career.
Matt Parish, director of LFC Foundation, commented:
Our Premier League Works scheme is an exciting programme that can be extremely valuable to the 18-25-year olds that attend to build their skills and find meaningful employment. This has been enhanced by club partner TigerWit, who have enriched this programme and taken it to the next level. We are looking forward to working together closely to offer life-changing experiences to the future generations and improve their chances of employment across Liverpool.
I recall how daunting the City was when I commenced my career. We want to help better prepare and equip young adults starting out in their chosen industry, so it isn’t as daunting a prospect. Along with the wider TigerWit team, which has an overwhelming experience in financial markets, we can share our knowledge and help guide the next generation in their career choices,” concluded Tim Hughes, CEO at TigerWit.
