TALENT OF TOMORROW TO RECEIVE £5,000 CHIVAS BROTHERS’ BURSARY FOR SECOND YEAR

Chivas Brothers began the search for bright, enthusiastic and dedicated applicants for its popular bursary scheme in partnership with the Scottish International Educational Trust (SIET). The initiative, which launched to great acclaim for the first time last year, offers financial support to ambitious employees or their family members, helping them to realise their aspirations and take their talents to the next level, whether through further education or vocational training.

 

This sought-after bursary scheme sees Chivas Brothers team up with SIET, a body which provides talented men and women with grants to complete further education studies. The partnership provides employees and direct family members with the opportunity to secure funding of up to £5,000 a year over three years.

Last year, the bursary, which is open to the 1,600 employees of Chivas Brothers, contributed towards the studies of an aeronautical engineer, a budding actress and a Classics student studying at Cambridge University. Employees throughout the country at 32 sites in Orkney, Speyside, Central Scotland, Ayrshire, London and Plymouth are now being encouraged to apply and further their personal and professional goals.

Mia Forbes, one of the three recipients of last year’s bursary said: “The bursary has been invaluable, it has relieved the stress surrounding my financial situation at university and allowed me to be more focused on my education. People underestimate the cost of books and other resources, but without the bursary it would have been a struggle. Chivas Brothers helped me to pursue my dream degree, easing the pressure of financial costs, something I will always be thankful for.”

Adam Donnelly, who is studying to become an engineer in aeronautics said: “It’s safe to say, I don’t know what I would have done without the bursary. It enabled me to travel to college, something which was a high expense in my plans for further education. For anyone wanting to further their learning, I cannot urge you enough to apply, it’s an invaluable opportunity and the business’s support just eases that pressure of the financial demands.”

Jennie Norrish, Global Communications Director at Chivas Brothers said: “When we launched the Chivas Brothers Bursary last year, we were overwhelmed by the response and the high calibre of those who applied for it. Last year’s recipients have really benefited from the funding provided and we can’t wait to see the aspirations of this year’s applicants. An entrepreneurial mind-set is something that we champion at Chivas Brothers and so to be able to support that with not only our employees but their families too, is something we are truly proud of as a business.”

Michael Ewart, Director of SIET, said: “This bursary is such a worthwhile initiative and we are delighted to be working with Chivas Brothers again this year. The scheme shows the business’s dedication and commitment to its employees, opening up opportunities for them that might never have been possible otherwise.”

To apply, employees can visit the company’s digital hub for its staff where an application form will be available. Applicants will be required to showcase why they should be selected via three sections on personal details, education and work experience. Here there will also be a variety of information about the beneficiaries from 2016.

Glasgow Airport records 50th consecutive month of growth

Glasgow Airport reported its busiest April on record after more than 786,000 passengers travelled through its doors during the month, representing an increase of 8.9% on the same period last year.

An 18% increase in international traffic ensured Glasgow Airport was also able to record its 50th consecutive month of growth. There was strong demand for the airport’s growing list of European destinations including Ryanair’s new services to Valencia, Lisbon and the Lithuanian city of Palanga.

April marked the start of the busy summer season with a number of airlines including Jet2 and Thomas Cook adding extra capacity. The airport was also boosted by the Easter getaway with almost 110,000 passengers using the airport during the first weekend of the school holidays.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport said: “In addition to growing our European network we have been working hard to consolidate our long haul offering. Both American Airlines and WestJet will return later this month and we also welcome Delta Air Lines to Glasgow for the first time when its inaugural service to New York-JFK takes off on 26 May.

“Not only do these routes play a hugely important role in strengthening our links with North America they will also help generate significant inbound tourism for Glasgow and Scotland, particularly at a time when the current exchange rate favours the US Dollar.

“Earlier this month Loganair launched our first ever direct service to Bergen, Norway, and with new flights to Frankfurt and Madrid still to come we are continuing to provide passengers with a greater choice of business and leisure destinations.”

Mr Mackay, the MSP for Glasgow Airport, said:

“It is encouraging to see passenger growing at Glasgow Airport yet again in what has been a very successful couple of years for the Airport.

“In a time of economic pressures, maintaining passenger numbers can be a challenge and this new increase in numbers is testament to the hard work of all the airport staff.

“Glasgow Airport is going from strength to strength which is good news for the whole of Renfrewshire.

“The Airport is a vital part of the local economy and any increase in passenger numbers has a positive knock on effect throughout the area.”
