SEAT joins the Princess of Girona Foundation to promote youth employment

The company takes a further step in its social commitment to young people. SEAT will be a part of the Talent Rescue programme, which fosters enhanced employability and skills development

09/10/2019

SEAT has joined the board of the Princess of Girona Foundation (FPdGI) to collaborate on its projects aimed at young people. The main goal of the foundation, whose honorary president is HM King Felipe VI on behalf of his daughter HRH the Princess of Asturias and Girona, is to support young people’s professional and personal development.

As part of its commitment to the foundation, the Spanish carmaker joins the Talent Rescue programme, which was created with the aim of improving the employability of young people with higher education (vocational training or university level) aged 20 to 30. This programme encourages their labour mobility among Spain’s autonomous communities and provides them with personalised tools such as mentoring or specific in-company training, among other benefits, besides giving priority to those who are members of the first generation of their family to obtain an advanced degree education.

SEAT is going to collaborate with the Princess of Girona Foundation through its job database by publishing its vacancies for the Trainee Programme. This initiative is for young talents who, once they have completed the programme, have the opportunity to be hired by SEAT. Furthermore, the company is going to organise ‘SEAT Open Day’ event twice a year, where it will give young people insights into the vision of the automotive sector, in addition to training sessions so they can develop their skills.

SEAT Vice-president for Human Resources Xavier Ros emphasised that “SEAT’s membership on the board of the Princess of Girona Foundation is a further example of our strong commitment to young people to promote employability, foster training and encourage entrepreneurship.”

Committed to training and youth employment
The signing of this agreement is framed within SEAT’s commitment to training and employment. The company recently signed a collaboration agreement with the ESADE business school with the aim of rolling out joint cooperation actions that provide research, training in areas related with entrepreneurship and business management, and the exchange of knowledge centred on the automotive sector.
