Date: Thursday 12 October
Time: 11am – 12pm
Business in the Community and City & Guilds Group surveyed 4,000 young people about their experiences of finding work. One in five young people said that a difficult application process had put them off the company they have applied for, and one in 10 said they had been put off the whole industry. These figures show that a poor recruitment process not only impacts a young person’s planned career direction but can also alienate potential future customers.
Our research also showed that 30 per cent of young people find the process of applying for a job difficult. For 31 per cent of applicants a key barrier was them not knowing what was required of them at every stage, while 21 per cent said an unclear job description made the process difficult.
We want to empower companies to use new techniques to create transparent, open and accessible recruitment processes for young people. To achieve this, we would like to invite you to a one hour webinar, focusing on how they can demystify recruitment for young first time job seekers.
Open to all HR professionals/Early Careers/Talent Managers based in Bristol area. Delegates will have the opportunity to:
- Hear how Burges Salmon currently make their recruitment processes more transparent and open for young applicants.
- Hear from BITC’s Youth Employment team on how to you can make your entry level job descriptions Jargon Free and why it matters
- Receive top tips on how they can implement these techniques in their own organisations.

We hope that you will be able to join us.
