Helping young people get the work experience they need – Are you involved?

7 Mar

Today I had the pleasure of seeing an update on the ‘Go think big’ initiative which helps youngsters get the sort of experiences they need to secure a job or even help fund projects. If you haven’t seen this programme which is backed by O2 and the Bauer Media group then you really should take a look <Click Here> they are looking for more organisations to get involved so if you are responsible for recruiting and have not seen the Go think big website you could be missing a trick.

As Business managers its so easy to take on someone with experience but how do the youngsters get the experience we  want them to have, we are on a downhill slope and unless we start to take action now we could see a whole generation skip by before we know it. The job market is becoming ever more competitive and we are missing out on fresh talent we need to drive our business forward.
