What does it take to host an Eagle?
As a flagship corporate social responsibility programme for ELBA, we are primarily looking for employers able to offer CSR or Community Affairs roles – but we could also be interested in other opportunities. Get in touch to find out more.
What are the advantages of hosting an Eagle?
By the time Eagles interns come to you, they’ve had training in your sector and have picked up a wide range of employability skills. They’ll quickly become a valuable addition to your team.
All the interns are from east London or an inner city borough, which provides you with a unique insight into the local community, as well as supporting the case for local recruitment.
The scheme gives excellent value for money: the interns are on ELBA’s headcount not yours. It’s highly unlikely you’ll find an agency worker with the same specialist knowledge at such a competitive rate.
We’re always looking for new employers to host our Eagles. Please contact Sally Roberts, Eagles Programme Manager at [email protected], 07980 610010.
“There is a real risk to the credibility of the CRS sector and to its ability to perform effectively if we don’t ensure that the door to our field is open to individuals from a diversity of backgrounds. Eagles is one way of reducing barriers to entry, by giving bright young people the opportunity to learn about CRS on the job. It is a rewarding programme for any CRS team to take part in.”
