For some young people a lack of understanding of the working world is a significant barrier to finding and sustaining employment. Businesses can offer young people the opportunity to overcome this barrier through work experience placements.
The chance to undertake real work and adjust to the routines and habits of working life can significantly improve individuals’ employment prospects. It can develop or refresh their skills and help them gain confidence, supporting them to move closer to employment. Older participants may well bring a range of skills that can positively contribute to your business.
If you are interested in offering work experience, please contact us. We will arrange a meeting to discuss how you can work with us to support unemployed people in the city and/or county.
