Spar Scotland promotes positive community engagement

Spar Scotland is working with Police Scotland and Lochside Academy, the largest secondary school in Aberdeen, to discuss positive community engagement, CSR, and career opportunities.

The first roundtable sessions took place at Lochside Academy on 20 March when Spar Scotland Area Manager Garry Brailsford and Spar Scotland Marketing Manager Paula Middleton spoke to about 100 students aged 13- and 14-years-old about community engagement, anti-social behaviour, and career opportunities with Spar and CJ Lang & Son.

The retailer has been invited back in April to do another roundtable session with older students about career opportunities with Spar and what an employer expects of an employee in the workplace.

Spar Scotland Marketing Manager Paula Middleton said: “Visiting the biggest secondary school in Aberdeen has been a very positive step in us getting to know our customers who are also our neighbours.

“We were keen to engage with the students at the school and have a proactive roundtable discussion about career opportunities and how SPAR can help them in the future in terms of community support and involvement.  The students on the day were excellent with some great questions asked and discussions held in every class.

“We are excited to be invited to come back again next month and discuss our partnership with the GTG Apprentice Scheme and other careers we will have available in customer service, retail, warehouse and logistics.”

Guidance Teacher Hannah Scriven, Lochside Academy, added: “It was a pleasure to see pupils engage in open discussion around community spirit, career aspirations and to learn about the Spar business.”
