2014 Budget

The Challenge of Youth Unemployment

Posted by: Alex Linley


John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, has called on George Osborne to ensure that the 2014 budget focuses on youth unemployment. With the unemployment rate at 19.9% for 16-24 year olds, there is a lot that needs to be done.


That’s one in five of our young people who are out of work, missing the chance to realise their potential and develop their careers. In a developed economy such as ours in the UK, that is simply not good enough.


At Capp, we have taken our experience and expertise in early careers recruitment, our wide university and student connections, and our deep knowledge and capability in assessment and development. We have combined them to build Jobmi.


Jobmi is the employability and recruitment platform, aimed at 16-24 year olds, and providing them with routes to develop their employability and find jobs.


With National Apprenticeship Week next week, we will be taking the opportunity to launch the Jobmi Manifesto, setting out just what we and our partners are working together to achieve through Jobmi.


There’s a better way to deliver better outcomes for everybody involved in early careers recruitment. With Jobmi we’re going to show how this can be done.
