South Essex solicitors, Palmers, are to sponsor the Inspiring Career Opportunity Award at the Thurrock Education Awards 2016.
The Inspiring Career Opportunity Award recognises innovative projects or opportunities which have shown dedication in helping children and young people make the transition into work.
This will be the third consecutive year that Palmers have sponsored an award category at the Thurrock Education Awards having sponsored the Inspiring Leader Award in 2014 and 2015.
Partner, Carey Jacobs, who judged those awards, said: “The transition from education into work can be challenging for both employee and employer. As an employer which recruits those newly leaving education, we’re keen to help recognise those schools and colleges that deliver outstanding and innovative programmes which make the transition easier and more manageable.”
She added: “I’m delighted that we’re once again able to support and sponsor the Thurrock Education Awards.”
