Look for the Youth Friendly Employer Mark!

What are Youth Friendly Employers?

Youth Friendly Employers are businesses who REALLY put young people at the heart of what they do.

They offer opportunities like apprenticeships with real career development. They offer proper training and support. They are looking for young people from ALL backgrounds and interests. And they know everyone has to start somewhere.

Youth Friendly Employers carry the #YouthFriendlyEmployer Mark to show jobseekers like you that you matter.

What is the Youth Friendly Employer Mark?

It’s a seal of approval given to chosen employers across the country by Youth Employment UK.

Thousands of young people guide our organisation with their views on education, employment and life. We are youth employment experts because we listen. REALLY listen. And companies with the Youth Friendly Employer Mark listen to us.

With our help, Youth Friendly Employers offer work opportunities with fair pay, great training, and interesting work that helps your career and confidence grow.

Why is the Youth Friendly Employer Mark important?

Youth Friendly Employers want to employ you. They want to give you a chance.

It can be hard to find work, to know what careers exist, to know what options are open to you and what skills you need.

Employers with the Youth Friendly Employer Mark can help you access great work experience that matches your level. They want to employ you. They don’t have impossibly high entry requirements. They understand your needs and are keen to help you build your skills and confidence.
