Work With The Youth Employment Experts

Youth Employment UK is a non-profit organisation tackling youth unemployment.

Young people are at the heart of everything we do.

Our services, expertise and resources are co-created with young people. We support the nation’s youth with free skills and careers information and have developed the Young Professional Programme which supports 14-24 year olds on their journey to a satisfying career.

100,000+ views of our careers content every month

Our expertise and Youth Friendly Employer content is shared by a large network of youth voices, thought leaders, youth employment champions and influencers.

We provide support in places of learning, in your workplace and at national policy level.

Youth Employment UK works with employers and organisations of all sizes and sectors who are committed to helping young people fulfil their potential.

As leading experts in youth employment and as the Secretariat to the APPG for Youth Employment we work closely with the UK Government. We are currently supporting the policy response to Covid through our work with the Youth Employment Group.
