Employing young people brings fresh energy, skills and knowledge to your business and can revitalise your existing workforce.  Creating apprenticeships and entry-level roles for young people is a cost effective way to develop a future workforce with the right skills and qualifications.

iWork Youth Employment team: here to help you recruit local young people

The iWork Youth Employment Team can support you to attract and recruit talented local young people for entry-level and part-time roles.

You could join our Saturday Jobs programme and offer part-time work to young people who are studying. It gives you the opportunity to fill your skills gaps, whilst giving young people the experience they need to become effective employees of the future.
