|Talent Match North East Leaders continued their work to embed the #WorkingTogether Employability Charter within organisations across the region by working with Business in the Community on their FutureProof campaign. Young people and staff looked at 9 entry level vacancies and person specifications from regional employers that have signed up to the Business in the Community FutureProof campaign. The activity aimed to support employers to make their jobs more accessible and appealing to young people, and the Talent Match Leaders applied their learning and experience of the Charter to support them to give feedback to employers.
In the second of the two-part series, the Talent Match Leaders will meet with employers to discuss their views of the job adverts and to provide recommendations on how they could use the #WorkingTogether Employability Charter to enhance the job vacancies offered to young people.
Talent Match is a Big Lottery Fund initiative which aims to test innovative approaches to supporting long term unemployed 18-24 yr-olds access work. A partnership of young people, employers, the third sector and public sector agencies, the programme is managed in the North East by the Wise Group.
