Deutsche Bank helps Clontarf Foundation boys get ready for employment

Through its Born to Be programme, Deutsche Bank is committed to helping young people around the world reach their full potential. In Australia, the bank partners with the Clontarf Foundation to invest in the future of young Aboriginal men so they can participate meaningfully in society.

In addition to fundraising activities and donations, the bank leverages the skills and work experience of its employees to host employment workshops for students.   

“Skilled volunteering is a great way for us to get involved with Clontarf because our employees are engaging directly with the boys, using their professional expertise and work life experience to benefit them,” said Lee Merchant Co-Head of GFX for Asia Pacific and Chair of the bank’s Charity Committee.

The employment workshop involved sessions covering CV writing, interviewing skills, personal branding and dressing for success. Brendan Maher, Clontarf’s NSW Partnerships Manager, said: “Sessions like this are invaluable for the boys. For them to come into a professional environment and get professional advice is not only a great learning experience for the boys, it’s an opportunity to demonstrate to the Clontarf staff that they are able to conduct themselves in a professional environment.”
