Leanne Laloli, HR Team Development Manager at Rainbow’s End says, “We are committed to offering a great start for many young people who most often live locally. We have realised that young workers can be a vulnerable section of the workforce and deserve particular protection and with the right guidance and support we can shape their attitude to work and their futures.

Though the support and leadership of our managers, our focused initiatives and training programmes we have purposefully created a youth friendly workplace.”
