The Recruit 2012

Invest in Renfrewshire’s The Recruit Finale and Awards Ceremony took place on 16th August in Paisley Town Hall. The awards were the culmination of this year’s The Recruit programme, which takes its inspiration from the BBC’s The Apprentice.

The Recruit participants undertake a series of challenges and compete for jobs with the council and local companies. Over the 10-week programme, 42 young people from across Renfrewshire participated in the programme, learning team working, leadership and business skills.


Top Recruit Lisa Fraser receives her award from Councillor Mark Macmillan, the Leader of Renfrewshire Council.
