Introducing our new Early Careers Hub and Partnership with Youth Employment UK
We're delighted to celebrate the launch of these new opportunities during the first annual Youth Employment Week!
As a charity that advocates for social mobility, we understand the importance of being a Youth Friendly Employer that offers accessible early career opportunities to young people of all backgrounds.
That’s why we’ve created a new early careers hub in partnership with Youth Employment UK, who have a decade of experience in championing youth voices, supporting young people, and empowering them with their own development.
Our early career hub is designed specifically for young people. It demonstrates that we are seriously invested in engaging young people and developing them to become their best with apprenticeships that are an easy step into a bright future in sports, regardless of your background and experience.
As a Youth Friendly Employer who has signed the Good Youth Employment Charter, we offer inclusive, high-quality employment opportunities. These are designed to enable young people of diverse backgrounds who are motivated to take the next step in their early career, valuing their strengths and qualities without putting undue focus on qualifications and experience.
"As a social mobility charity, we are committed to providing opportunities to young people who may otherwise face exclusion, discrimination or lack of opportunity. This new partnership, which we are launching as part of Youth Employment Week, highlights our dedication to reaching and supporting disadvantaged young people, offering routes into meaningful employment through sport and apprenticeships."
Youth Employment Week ’23
We are pleased to time the launch of our new opportunities platform during Youth Employment Week, a brand new 5-day celebration, designed to help tackle youth unemployment.
Each day is specially themed to support everyone involved in the employment process, including young people, employers, educators and parents. Youth Employment UK says this will become an annual event to connect young people to opportunities, support them in finding employment and raise awareness of the benefits of hiring young people to employers. The theme for this year is ‘Opportunity for All’ and each day has a specific focus:
Monday 3rd July – Skills
Tuesday 4th July – Life & Work Experience
Wednesday 5th July – What is next?
Thursday 6th July – First Job
Friday 7th July – Career Management
Throughout this week, you can expect to see virtual events, activities and interactive opportunities.
