What is the Youth Friendly Employer Award?

The Youth Friendly Employer Award is a quality kitemark that assesses organisations against a best practice framework. The Award supports organisations to embed a youth friendly employment culture to help create a motivated and diverse future workforce.

Organisations with the Youth Friendly Employer Award demonstrate that they provide young people with quality opportunities to explore, experience work, and have a range of youth employment pathways. Youth Friendly Employers are supported with a comprehensive resource bank which provides advice and guidance on all aspects of youth employment and are profiled and connected to the Young Professional Network.

Why it’s important

There are still nearly 800,000 young people not in education, employment or training, and In a post-Brexit economy with increasing skills shortages it couldn’t be more important to support young people as they move from education into employment. Helping them to develop the skills they need to fulfil the requirements of business and their own career aspirations.

“Young people tell us that it is the lack of understanding what skills they need and what careers exist that is their biggest barrier to employment. Young people in the main do not think employers are particularly supportive of hiring them. The Youth Friendly Employer Award addresses all of those challenges whilst supporting employers to develop and be recognised for excellent programmes. Now is the time for us to create a Youth Friendly Economy.” Laura-Jane Rawlings, CEO of Youth Employment UK
