Be recognised for your LGBT-friendly youth employment practice

Did you know that Youth Employment UK is home to the Youth Friendly Employer Mark? The Mark allows a business to be recognised for its positive approach to youth employment. In a recent survey more than 93% of young people said they would be more interested in applying for a job if that employer had been checked out for offering decent job opportunities for young people? And had a Youth Friendly Employer seal of quality?

As a Youth Friendly Employer Mark holder you are entitled to:

  • Full use of the Youth Friendly Employer Mark (93% of young people said that they would be more likely to apply to a company with the Mark)
  • Youth Friendly Employer Certificate
  • Listing on the Youth Friendly Employer Database accessed by young people using the careers website
  • Access to free webinars that include advice and support on all youth employment topics, including: Apprenticeships, Recruitment, Work Experience, Diversity & Inclusion
  • Access to Youth Employment UK expert team for your specific inquiries and/or support needs
  • Invitation to Youth Employment UK Annual Celebration Event
  • Opportunity to attend APPG for Youth Employment UK meetings in Parliament and help shape Youth Employment UK policy work

In addition to membership to the Youth Friendly Employer Mark, organisations can upgrade their membership to include an Employer Profile on the Careers Hub. An Employer Profile operates as a mini-microsite and helps brands to engage with our youth audience (70,000+ young people per month), bringing the organisation to life through images, videos and inspiring careers content.


What is a Youth Friendly Employer?

As a Youth Friendly Employer you receive youth employment guidance, support, insights and influential networking opportunities, along with increased reach with our thousands of Young Professionals and the 70,000+ young people who visit our site each month.
