Howard Lake | 8 February 2006 | News

Cancer Research UK, Groundwork Oldham and Rochdale, the Northern Housing Federation and the Southern Housing Group are the four charities short-listed for the National Council for Work Experience’s annual Awards, to be held in London on 22 February 2006.

Developed in 2003, the Awards recognise, encourage and reward employers who take the lead in the provision of valuable opportunities for students and set high standards for others to follow, offering fulfilling work placements and helping students develop employability skills.

The Charity Award recognises the importance of work experience for the voluntary sector as a recruitment and business support tool.

Annette Breeden, Head of Volunteering at Cancer Research UK, said: “We’re thrilled that we’ve got through to the final for the Awards. Everyone at Cancer Research UK has been working hard to really make work experience part of the fabric of the organisation. Not only does it hopefully give students interested in working within the charity sector a step up, it also really benefits us.”
