Call for staff to help tackle youth unemployment




A mentoring scheme to boost employment
Employee learning provider Inspire, Motivate & Engage is calling for more staff across the country to get involved with their mentoring scheme, and help tackle youth unemployment.

This call comes on the back of recent data from the Office for National Statistics* which shows that 975,000 young people aged 16 to 24 in the UK were classed as NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training), although over half of them were actively looking for work.

Claire Atkinson, founder and CEO of IME explains how mentoring schemes can help to redress this problem: “There are thousands of young people across the country who are actively looking for work and a mentoring scheme such as the one we run at IME is the ideal way for people to gain valuable knowledge and skills from employees who have years of experience.”

Inspire, Motivate and Engage’s mentoring scheme matches unemployed young people with people working in their chosen line of work, and they are currently recruiting for new mentors.

Claire continues: “We have young people across the country queuing up to join the scheme, so now we need suitable mentors to step up and help change a young person’s life.”

The mentor need only contribute an hour a week, and mentor meetings can take place face-to-face, or online through tools such as Skype, so the scheme is 100% flexible around your day-to-day work.

Each party gets access to their own personal online mentoring portal and IME are there to ensure the process runs smoothly at every step of the way.

So far IME have partnered with organisations such as Legal & General, Milkround and Skandia, and they are looking for more businesses across the country to join the scheme.
