What do people say about us?:

My name is Kyle Harpin, I am a mentee at Central hub and a Steering Group Co-Chair. I started off my journey with no confidence and while I have been on the programme my confidence has sky rocketed. With the help of other mentees on Talent Match, we hosted a Charity Event for Cancer Research UK. I am starting a T-shirt printing business with help from Talent Match and the Princes Trust. When I first joined Talent Match, I didn’t have high hopes for it, I thought it was going to be a generic “Get into work” programme, but I was very wrong. If I didn’t join Talent Match I most likely would have still been sat at home and doing nothing productive, Talent Match has brought out the best side of me and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
