UKsubsidises youth workers to ease jobs drought a comment from Robert Half

Following the UK government’s promise to pledge &pound1 billion on employment subsidies and other support to help young people into work as youth unemployment:

Clive Davis, director at leading recruitment specialist Robert Half UK, says:

“The planned employment subsidies will be a welcome relief for many young people as well as for companies looking to invest in the future.

“It’s imperative that employers create opportunities for graduates and school leavers, whether that comes in the form of an internship or training programmes, to ensure we avoid a lost generation of talent that will impact the modern workforce for years to come. Work experience is invaluable for new job hunters and it is here that organisations can really make a difference.”

Robert Half carried out research with 180 HR directors, asking which of the following, if any, do you think have the most negative impact on the younger generation in the workforce?” Their responses were:

Lack of entry-level jobs

37%

High unemployment rates

32%

Lack of internship opportunities
