When you have just left school, the world of work can be a daunting prospect.

But thanks to a project led by the Braintree Foyer, local business men and women will be coming together to inspire young people and give them advice on how to build a career.

The Pop Up Talent Shop will open at Unit 9 in George Yard, Braintree, from 12pm-4pm on March 27.


A hairdresser, IT repair man, army careers representative and photographer are among the business people already confirmed to be attending the forthcoming event.

Chris Saunders, of Braintree Foyer, said: “The idea is to show young people that there’s many different ways of getting into work."
