Working with DYW

As part of #IceCreamMonth, we are delighted to be working with Developing The Young Workforce – Ayrshire (DYW) to showcase all that the artisan ice cream industry has to offer and in particular the job opportunities it creates for our young workforce.

We are very proud of our summer recruit Louis Warwick, who was video-interviewed by Natalie and Danielle from DYW about his experience working in Sugar & Spice and serving Geraldo’s Ice Cream.  Louis was asked lots of questions about everything from the recruitment process, to his favourite and least liked tasks within the role. He did amazingly well! Have a look at the DYW blog and watch his video below.

DYW is the Scottish Government’s youth employment strategy aiming to develop the young workforce and reduce youth unemployment by 40 per cent by 2021. The Ayrshire DYW Regional Group was established to engage with local employers, encourage them to liaise with schools and colleges and to recruit more young people within the region. We are very pleased to be part of this initiative and look forward to working with DYW in the future.
