It was great to be invited to attend the launch of the OPERA Global Youth Foundation last night.
The purpose of OPERA is to unite recruiters to empower 71 million young people who are facing unemployment.
Our director Angela Peart attended the event to see how we at Utility People can contribute and make a difference. Utility People are very passionate about the industry skills shortage and we know how important it is to get the next generation interested in a career in Utilities to ensure we have a skilled workforce in the future years when the industry will lose so many utility experts due to retirement.
The charity is truly inspirational and Utility People are really looking forward to becoming a member of OPERA and working together to help young people build careers in the energy industry.
