Karina took part in #Takeover Day

Karina took part in Barnsley Council's #Takeover Day as part of the Children's Commissioner National Takeover Challenge.

This involves employers opening their doors to young people giving them experience in the world of work to learn about high level decision making.

Barnsley Council offered our Barnsley looked after children and care leavers many opportunities from construction, business admin, facilities management, property management, the police and law.

Karina was able to work in the Communications and Marketing Team for the day and takeover the council's social media sites. Karina took many photos from the town centre with the support of a marketing officer as well as getting to meet the Mayor of Barnsley.

Karina, 'I've enjoyed my work experience so far, its been fun taking on a different role to my usual day job!'
