How engaging with young people can benefit your business

The benefits to young people with your engagement will be significant. However, there are clear business benefits too including:

  • Increase your business profile in the community

  • Pipeline of candidates for the future

  • High return on investment with a reduced recruitment cost base

  • Development of your staff

  • Help school’s knowledge of current jobs and career opportunities

  • Bring in new ideas from young people

What is our process?

Our process is collaborative. Our aim is to define your business goals and match them with the correct schools and the most suited activities that will allow you to engage, inspire and shape the young people in our region. We will reward you with a certificate as recognition of your commitment to Developing the Young Workforce.

Areas you can provide inspiration

  • 3-24 Work awareness & inspiration

    Young people want to know more about the range of jobs and careers that exist so that when they choose their courses at the end of S2, they are more informed of the options and pathways that are available to them. Let's tell them about your company and industry...

  • 14-18 Work experience

    Young people need exposure to what they think they want to do. Coming out of school to experience life at work helps develop skills and knowledge for them to take into their future career. With week long, bespoke and extended placements now available, there is a model that will suit your business. Come on, get involved.

  • 16-24 Real job opportunities & apprenticeships

    Just like some of our regions most successful people, going straight into work is the right option for them. Did you know that 57% of apprentices go into management positions? Offering entry level roles is a way for employees to know your business from the ground up. Let us know if you can consider offering an entry level role...
