Talent RISE (UK) is delighted to announce a brilliant partnership with JBR Capital, the UK’s only independent lender dedicated solely to high-end vehicle finance. This partnership will initially run until the end of 2022 and involves JBR sponsoring Talent RISE’s charitable activities with young people facing barriers to employment.
JBR’s generous support includes a donation of £7,500, and the company has also worked with Talent RISE to develop a meaningful internship programme that helps diverse young talent to build careers in professional services.
As part of the programme JBR Capital has already welcomed two young people as interns within the company’s Marketing and Credit teams. As well as having an amazing opportunity to build their skills, experience and confidence, interns are receiving the London Living Wage.
Both Talent RISE and JBR Capital hope that more young people can be offered paid internship opportunities within the company’s other teams, potentially including Compliance, IT and HR.
Andy Chaggar, Talent RISE (UK)’s Director, had this to say about the partnership:
“I want to say a huge thank you to everyone at JBR for their support and engagement. Developing this partnership has taken time and effort from their team on top of their busy day jobs. JBR has already impacted the lives of two very deserving young people, and we applaud their payment of the London Living Wage to ensure these internships were accessible to those without other sources of financial support. JBR’s generous donation will also allow Talent RISE (UK) to support even more young people on their journey towards meaningful employment”
Nayan V. Kisnadwala, JBR Capital’s CEO, shared their own thoughts:
“Working with Talent RISE has brought tremendous benefit to JBR Capital and we are proud of the excellent relationship that has been developed. It was important for us to offer young people meaningful opportunities that provide them with valuable skills for the future. It has also proved highly beneficial line-management experience for junior colleagues in our Marketing and Credit Teams. Our growing relationship with Talent RISE forms part of our wider ESG strategy and sits alongside our Carbon Offsetting work and community engagement initiatives.”
We look forward to continuing this wonderful partnership with JBR Capital and genuinely feel they’re setting a fantastic example to other employers on how to support young people.
