Also in Staff
The Future Jobs Fund, 2010-11, was our biggest intake ever, when over 20 people joined us at once... As part of a government-backed initiative to get the long-term unemployed back into work, we were able to recruit people, most of whom quirky in one way or another, and half of them disabled also.
The exercise stretched us like few things had before, but also brought its own unique rewards with it, and necessitated the systems and practices that were later on key in our internship programme.
Feel free to meet some of the FJF team below, or see here for more information on both the Future Jobs Fund and our participation in it.
In our first 5 years (2003-2008), we tallied up over 60 members of staff, working mosty at our Covent Garden store.
Although none have team pages here, we have caught up with some of them to see where they are now (see "Catch Ups"). While at it, we also asked what it was like to have Coffee, Cake & Kink on their CVs, and whether they found it working to their advantage or, on the contrary, experienced any prejudice. Most of all, it is just nice to keep in touch.
