Youth unemployment in the UK is currently at record levels. There are more than 1 million 16 to 24 year olds who are unemployed, with over 200,000 having been out of work for more than a year.
This research assesses the views of UK businesses towards offering job opportunities to young people who have been unemployed for longer than a year. It is based on a survey of ICAEW Chartered Accountants working in businesses of all sizes.
From 21 – 27 October 2013, Professions Week aims to increase interest of careers in the professions among 14 – 19 year olds, support teachers and careers advisers in accessing vital resources and raise awareness of the role of the professions with government. ICAEW is one of 15 founding bodies of the week, and we are encouraging all of our members, firms and students based in the UK to get involved.
