ACS Recruitment and Big Youth Group help to get young people into the jobs they deserve
ACS Recruitment are proud to be supporting the Big Youth Group, a collective of youth first companies aiming to improve the odds for young people between the ages of 18-30 years old.
Did you know that 66% of under 30 year olds want a career change? Whilst 23% of graduates go into “non-professional” roles a year after graduating and 44% of young people are already freelancing. Big Youth Group was set up because young people are often labeled, misunderstood and misrepresented.
Because of this, there is a lack of available candidates in the labour market for jobs that applicants are desperately needed for. And because of the amount of millennials that are entering the workforce, recruiters need to start looking for those candidates who might not necessarily be recruited elsewhere.
Therefore, Big Youth Group’s mission is to give young people purposeful, work-life experiences and to be the helping hand on their career journey. Their initiatives include the Big Youth Accelerator, designed to aid the successful launch, building and growth of a new business and their personal brand.
Jack Parsons, CEO of Big Youth Group commented:
“I’m delighted to have Chris become one of our ambassadors. Chris is passionate about helping young people and so are we here at Big Youth Group so it’s a perfect match. The Big Youth Group holds a very ambitious plan to improve the odds for young people and our ambassadors will be a big part of our exciting execution.”
ACS Recruitment is supporting Big Youth Group to help get young people in the careers they deserve.
ACS Recruitment are passionate about placing talented people into the right jobs and by 2025, 75% of the global workforce will be millennials. Therefore, it’s more important than ever to help improve the odds for young people and to ensure they are matched to purposeful career opportunities and to ready them for success.
Chris Wright, Sales Director at ACS Recruitment has now become an Ambassador for Big Youth Group. He commented:
“I have been following Jack Parsons story for a while now and after meeting with him last year, his passion for his vision of helping young people find work was infectious. Jack and his team work tirelessly to create the awareness for a change in the industry and really mirrored what we represent at ACS Recruitment.
“That is why we decided to work with Jack and The Big Youth Group, the synergy works really well and we are excited to be part of it.”
