Insight Paper – Employer Links

This second youth unemployment focused Insight paper by the Our Future Now team outlines the importance of employer engagement in enabling young people with the most challenging lives to compete in the face of fewer opportunities and greater competition for jobs.

These young people face considerable disadvantage and the support delivered by the portfolio is intensive and wide ranging from the point of engagement to securing a job and beyond.  The extend of this work with employers is not always fully understood and it is hoped that this paper reflects the contribution that Inspiring Scotland’s Our Future Now portfolio and wider third sector can make to job creation which will be crucial in the challenging period ahead.
