Getting Involved With Local Milton Keynes Charity Worktree

January 3, 2019

During 2018, aZtec Commercial Cleaning came across local charity Worktree and decided to get involved.

What is Worktree?

Worktree are a trunk of 1,500 volunteers helping young people find out what work is really like by answering their questions honestly. They attend sessions in schools organised by a small team of paid Worktree staff, governed by trustees from different branches of employment.

Why did aZtec get involved with Worktree?

aZtec Commercial Cleaning employ over 300 people in Milton Keynes and the 9 surrounding counties. In addition to providing local employment, we wanted to be able to give something back to our local community. A project based at reducing under-employment, developing employablity skills and stimulating work aspirations seemed a good fit for our company. Schools are also one of our commercial cleaning client sectors.

So far, Tracy Campbell (Director) and Jane Tarrant (Business Development Manager) have attended Worktree events. Worktree have recently published a case study on Jane Tarrant’s experience of getting involved with the charity.
