Youth unemployment is still an issue in the UK and employers nationwide are hiring apprentices to help young people on to the career ladder.

The Big Academy is a not-for profit community interest company which aims to help young people into employment regardless of their social or academic background. It provides advice and work experience opportunities for young people looking for work. Employers are also able to advertise their vacancies on the site. One of its main aims is to urge employers to invest in young people, and it provides the opportunity for employers to create profiles to showcase their business on the site.

The Big Academy offers a free recruitment service and use of its website and network. Although the apprentice wage is decided by the employer, The Big Academy encourages National Minimum Wage rather than the apprentice wage.

Employers can register with The Big Academy and advertise their vacancies on the site, benefiting from reduced recruitment costs, as the site finds people most suited to your company. You are also doing your bit to tackle youth unemployment in the UK and securing the future of your business.
