Young people were given the chance to get hands-on work experience with expert mentors at Knowsley Housing Trust.
A group of five young people took part in the Work Pairings scheme, which teamed them with a mentor for one-to-one support.
KHT staff Andy Coulson, Sharon Hughes, Julie Langton, Dawn Taylor and Ceri Hoppe all took part in the scheme, showing them the ropes and what daily life is like in their job.
The scheme was aimed at young people aged between 16 and 19 not in education, employment or training.
Over the seven-week programme they worked closely with tenants dealing with complaints and repairs, got to grips with marketing events and learnt about KHT’s services.
Rachel Parry, aged 19, was paired with Ceri Hoppe at KHT’s front counters.
She said: “Before work pairing I had been unemployed for six months. While at KHT I was working on the front counters dealing with customers, booking in repairs for their properties and dealing with complaints.
“I think I have gained a lot more confidence throughout the work pairing.”
