Employment : A range of employment and training pathways are included here: full time and part time work, Apprenticeships, Kickstart opportunities and graduate jobs.

What are Youth Friendly Employers?

Organisations that sign up to our Good Youth Employment Charter are awarded a Youth Friendly Employer badge so you can recognise them, but what does being youth friendly mean?

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 Badge to show jobseekers like you that you matter.
