What Employers Want

As part of What Employers Want, we have produced a suite of resources for unemployed young people, aged 16–25, who are looking for employment. This might be a full or part-time job, an Apprenticeship, an internship or any other type of work.

The resources include:

  • A responsive website for young people and providers who are delivering employability training with young people, featuring the Young People and Employability Skills findings and resources, as well as six new films.
  • A downloadable guide providing clear information and insights into what employers want. Hard copies of the guide are also available - to request a copy email Lorraine Casey at Lorraine.Casey@learningandwork.org.uk.
  • Six films of employers talking about what they look for in job candidates.
