There are lots of different ways to support young people - and lots of great reasons for doing so.
Every employer is encouraged to get involved, whether you’re a sole trader with only an hour to spare, or a large corporation with a team of volunteers who wish to provide regular, structured support.
Our role? To make it easier for you to connect with your future workforce.
Would you like to recruit young people but don't know where to start? Perhaps you're already trying but not attracting applications?
Our free business breakfast includes practical advice and guidance to help you provide a positive recruitment experience for young people - and better results for you as an employer.
One of the easiest ways to give young people insights into your sector and business is to participate in your local school's careers fair.
Attending school careers fairs helps to raise awareness of your organisation and any entry-level positions, such as apprenticeships, that you can offer young people.
Our coordinators help with all the arrangements. This means that the process is as smooth and enjoyable for you as possible.
"This was the first careers fair that we have attended; Kevin made the whole process very straightforward and enjoyable. We will definitely be back!"
