As featured in the Chelsea Football Club Foundation

Chelsea Foundation's Edge of the Box Club was launched in 2015 and over the past four years an impressive 4,000 start-ups have come through the programme.

One person who has benefitted from the Edge of the Box Club programme is Cassandra Hamilton who founded Edworkation.

With the help of Chelsea Foundation’s programme, the former HR manager set up a business to help young people navigate the challenges of the work place after being made redundant and discovering her passion for helping people at the start of their careers.

She said: ‘I didn’t think my confidence, awareness or knowledge would be this strong.

‘It has helped me build such invaluable links that have helped to really accelerate my business.

A former HR manager has set up a business to help young people navigate the challenges of the workplace.

Cassandra Hamilton from Ealing, West London, was inspired to start Edworkation after being made redundant and discovering her passion for helping people at the start of their careers.

“I always preferred the human side of HR. I interacted with a lot of entry level young people, in their first or second job. I watched how much they would struggle for their goals in their probation, and after I was made redundant in July last year, I was not sure what to do.”

You want to bring your people on the growth journey with you. You want to hire and promote the right people.   You want to make sure that as an employer you remain competitive and your team now and in the future want to work for you and not your competition.

We recognise that young people are the future change makers, Leaders and innovators but not everyone has the drive or confidence to get there.

Don’t do this journey alone, let Edworkation connect you, support you and engage you. Call me and let’s have a chat about how you can really take control of your success.

Testimonials

I worked with Cassandra as part of the People Team at Boden. Cass was self motivated, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I knew I could always relay on her to help me out- which she did many times! Her ability to solve problems in a pragmatic and professional way was most appreciated. She has an amazing ability to build relationships quickly and work out what help and advice she needs to give. Her enthusiasm and energy is now channelled into her own business which I'm sure will thrive with her at the helm!

Cassandra and I met on December 2019. At this time I was looking for my first actual job in the UK. From the very beginning she seemed a really trustworthy and reliable person. She made me believe in myself and in my qualifications. She provided great counselling and guidance before my interviews and she was by my side when I needed to. She brought the best out of me and I successfully got the job at CACI Ltd. as a Marketing Executive. I really enjoyed working with Cassandra, as she is a lively, dynamic individual with exceptional communication and interpersonal skills. Thank you for everything!

Cassandra really knows what she’s talking about when it comes to career advice. She has been so kind and helpful to me as I begin the job hunt. She has given constructive advice on how to improve my CV and how to really sell myself as a graduate, the difference between cover letters and personal statements. Would recommend Edworkation to anyone! Very grateful for all Cassandra’s help.
