Mackies Ice Cream & The Recruit

A guest blog from school pupils currently partaking in The Recruit, our programme within schools, assisting pupils to get employment ready and encouraging enterprising thinking.      

Elevator Recruit LogoHi, we a are small group of 5th/6th year students from an employability programme called Recruit, run by Elevator. In our group we have learnt about communication skills, teamwork, problem-solving, general personal development and how to use these skills in things like job interviews.

Recently we received a challenge from Mackie’s ice cream to create a new flavour for them that will fit in with the traditional Mackie’s brand. They even brought along their ice cream flavour for us to try at the Elevator office.
