North-east employers are being urged to share their views on any barriers they face in terms of connecting with and recruiting young people.

A survey from Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) North East invites local organisations to indicate where they require support to engage with and attract future talent. The survey is particularly relevant for organisations who are Young Person’s Guarantee pledge partners, however views are sought from any employer with an interest in connecting with young people.

Margo Mine, Director, DYW North East said: “Our team are committed to helping our region’s employers engage with the next generation. We want our support to be as meaningful as possible, however we can only do this if we fully understand what businesses need. The feedback really does matter and we’re keen to hear from organisations of all sizes and across all sectors.”

The survey can be accessed here.

DYW is a Scottish Government initiative which aims to make it easier for employers to connect with young people in schools and colleges. DYW North East, which covers Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, is one of 20 regional groups. Further information is available at
