A representative from Scottish Development International
Ryan Pugh, Volunteer Business Support Associate , Challenges Worldwide
An increasingly globalised world needs companies to have a workforce with an international outlook.
Challenges Worldwide as a wealth of experience in helping businesses, with one successful method being the placement of young people into a business overseas.
Currently working across Sub – Saharan Africa, these young professionals return to the UK with international, hands-on and capacity building experience that has allowed them to become effective employees in their respective fields.
Working in partnership with SDI and Scotgrad, Challenges Worldwide helps to internationalise businesses with these young professionals who have first-hand experience in international business environments.
Ryan Pugh joins us to talk about his experience of a 12-week placement in Zambia through Challenges Worldwide and International Citizen Service (ICS), the difference he made to the business, as well as some unexpected additional benefits to the local community.
Scotgrad helps businesses grow through graduate staff who are part-funded by the Scottish Government.
Challenges Worldwide has particularly extensive experience in Ghana and with the Chamber and SDI’s growing relationship with multiple Ghanaian businesses and governmental bodies, now is the time to become involved.
Join us to discover how your business can benefit from this project, and tap into this valuable source of global talent.
