At White City Place this week in collaboration with LBHF council we hosted local businesses, local schools and the Mayor of Hammersmith & Fulham for White City Reveal, an employability event focused on life sciences, green tech and the creative industries.
More than 120 local pupils met pioneering business leaders from White City’s booming innovation district.
“There are so many scientists and engineers and inventors here,” said Jamil, 11, from St John’s XXIII primary school in White City. “One day, I am going to be one of them.”
By connecting local schools with our buzzing business community, H&F is helping ensure local children have the best possible chance to benefit from local job opportunities.
“My favourite today was L’Oréal,” said Sylvia Sharp, 12, from Phoenix Academy in White City. “I know that they’re based here in White City now, so I definitely want to apply to a job to work in skincare when I’m old enough.”
