Movement to Work is a voluntary collaboration of UK employers, from plc to SME, representing a range of industry sectors. Movement to Work tackles the issue of youth unemployment, through offering quality work experience placements to young people who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), giving them the skills and confidence to take the first steps into their careers.
Over 300 companies are now members of Movement to Work which has provided in excess of 62,000 placements to date, with 56% of those completing placements going on to paid employment, apprenticeships or further study.
Are you UK employer and would like to get involved?
Whether you are looking to broaden your talent pipeline for entry level roles or apprenticeships, create a more diverse workforce or secure a sustainable skill base for the future, we would like to encourage you to participate and join us as a member of the Movement to Work Programme.
Many members have found that Movement to Work is well positioned to facilitate a pipeline of diverse, talented candidates for apprenticeship programmes. In some cases this has led to double digit increase in apprentice retention and progress achieved by candidates who have completed the Movement to Work programme compared to traditional entrants.
The impact to the individuals’ involved and wider industry is significant across the UK and we are keen to build on this momentum with your support.
Movement to Work’s next milestone is to reach 100,000 planned placements by employers by the end of 2018 and we would like to appreciate your active participation in the scheme to help Movement to Work meet this goal.
Whilst we have committed to help share awareness of the MTW scheme across our supply-chain, we appreciate that your ability and decision to participate is entirely at your discretion.
We look forward to and encourage your commitment to this important industry programme.
