Engage, Recruit and Retain Young People

At Business Wales we understand that in a post-Covid world there are many barriers in engaging, recruiting and retaining young people in the workplace, not only for you but for them too. On these pages we will help you identify what you need to address and change in your recruitment and on-boarding process, to enable you to engage with young people for your organisation.

We have partnered with some key organisations in Wales to provide you with advice, tips and examples, alongside receiving support to guide you through the changes.
