eCom Scotland Helping Young People in Fife Prepare for Work
eCom is delighted to be participating in a new programme to help young people in Fife into employment. Run by charitable initiative Hand Picked and supported by Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Fife, the programme is built around The Hand Picked Academy, which was set up by Executive Chairman of CR Smith, Gerard Eadie.

Helping local students
eCom’s Managing Director, Wendy Edie, will be helping students at a local Dunfermline High School to learn about what matters most in the job application process and how they can make a great impression with potential employers.
Following the Hand Picked Academy programme, Wendy will be helping students gain new skills such as creating their CV, preparing a cover letter, interview technique and workplace etiquette.
Commenting on her involvement, eCom’s Managing Director, Wendy Edie, said “Helping young people has always been very important to me and it’s also something I really enjoy. It’s great to be involved with this programme and to get the chance to help young people improve their chances of gaining employment.”
Last year Hand Picked Academy helped 80 young people into jobs, with a further 27 choosing to move into further education or stay on at school.
