Arco Healthcare Colleagues Volunteer their Expertise with Scottish Charity

30 March 2023

Two of Arco's healthcare colleagues have provided their advice and support to a group of jobseekers in central Scotland. Dougie Logan, Key Account Manager, and Keith Moir, Healthcare Specialist, recently spent time supporting the Clackmannanshire Economic Regeneration Trust, a charity which helps improve the economic inclusion, development and regeneration of Clackmannanshire in central Scotland.

Linked to Arco's relationship with NHS Scotland, Dougie and Keith were keen to support the charity and their pre-employability project. The project aims to engage and develop local people and to equip them with the skills they need to confidently apply for jobs and find employment.

As part of their volunteering, the pair hosted a session with seven local people who are searching for work but are struggling in the current market.

Dougie and Keith spoke to the group, sharing their advice on best practice when it comes to job hunting and interview preparation techniques and spoke about their own experiences to help boost the attendee's confidence.

Mark O'Hare, Operations Manager at Clackmannanshire Economic Regeneration Trust, said:

"Dougie and Keith's generous donation of time and expertise was truly invaluable to all those in attendance. We greatly appreciated their willingness to share their knowledge and experience with us, and I want to extend my deepest thanks for their contributions.

"The feedback we have received from participants has been overwhelmingly positive, with many noting the value and engagement of the session."

Keith said:

"Personally, I think it's great being able to use the CSR days that Arco gives colleagues to make a positive impact on someone's life.

"The session was a great experience and it was really rewarding to see how inspired the delegates were by hearing our stories - one attendee in particular asked for help with her CV at the end of the session, having never engaged fully with the charity before."
