Grow your Business through young people in Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire.

Employing a young person gives you an opportunity to mould him or her to suit your business as well as increasing productivity and build your future workforce by teaching and expanding on their skill set.

From September 2013 all young people will be expected to be in jobs with training, or in Apprenticeships. Alternatively they can continue in further education until the end of the academic year in which they turn 17. This will rise to age 18 in 2015. This does not mean they have to remain at school - 16 and 17 year olds will be able to choose between school, college or work with training.

Find out more about this on the website Funding. Accredited training is fully funded for 16-18 year olds. This includes apprenticeships which are funded through the National Apprenticeship Service.

Need help recruiting young people? The Employer Services Team at Cambridgeshire County Council can help you to recruit young people to your full and part-time positions. It is expensive to advertise and the broad coverage provided by local advertising will generally not reach the majority of young people.

We can target your vacancy directly to those who are seeking employment at no cost to yourself, and we will advertise your vacancy in a weekly bulletin which is distributed to schools, colleges, libraries as well as youth centres. Your vacancy will be included on our Youthoria website.

We can also offer you advice on: Wages, working hours, health and safety, qualifications and employing a young person
