Oldham young person secures job with support from Mahdlo and Manchester Camerata

Manchester Camerata recently said farewell to Classical Futures placement and in-house Digital Communicator Andrew Campbell.

Andrew has now managed to secure his next job working within digital communications for The Growth Company – a job Andrew says he wouldn’t have got if it wasn’t for his time with Manchester Camerata.

The project is generously supported by The Holroyd Foundation, The Hoppy Trust and Lindsay Walsh and is in partnership with Reform Radio. ‘Classical Futures’ aims to give a young person a great first job in the arts and a kick-start to their career. Each year Camerata recruit an individual from across the OnSide network of Greater Manchester to join their team as a Digital Communicator.

Last year the position was held by Andrew Cambell who was recruited through the Get a Job programme at Mahdlo Youth Zone.

Ali Sadaqat, the Employability & Enterprise Coordinator of Mahdlo Youth Zone had this to say about Andrew :

“I am immensely proud of what Andrew has achieved and seeing his journey starting at Mahdlo Youth Zone from a young boy who was lacking in self-confidence and self-esteem and developing into a very pleasant young man with a positive outlook of life. This has only been possible by partnership work with Manchester Camerata and Sebastian Mariner going the extra mile listening to suggestions and adapting the recruitment process in order to accommodate the needs of the young person. Andrew definitely has a spring in his step and is looking forward to his next adventure. Well done Andrew I am really proud of you!”

This year the position will be held by Reeco Liburd who was recruited through HideOut Youth Zone in Gorton.
