“Youth unemployment remains a challenge in the UK and will only increase in the coming years. What is the biggest hurdle to this complex issue? It’s often a lack of connectivity between young people and good quality, well-supported employment opportunities.”

How does the Youth Friendly Employer Award help?

Created in response to demand from employers, 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.

As a Youth Friendly Employer Award holder you will be given all the support you need to create a youth friendly high-impact employer profile on our Careers Hub, raising awareness of your organisation as a youth friendly employer and helping young people navigate the range of roles that you offer. The Careers Hub offers your organisation the chance to demonstrate its value as a Youth Friendly Employer to our national network of young people, parents, schools, colleges, work coaches and youth organisations.

This approach to profiling quality employers to young people starts to address one of the biggest challenges still plaguing youth unemployment – connectivity between young people and quality opportunity.

Wherever you are on the journey to becoming a youth friendly employer, the Youth Friendly Employer Framework can support you. For more information on the framework criteria and how you can register for the Award, please email info@youthemployment.org.uk or contact us using the form below to arrange a call with our team.
