It’s becoming a real struggle to find and keep good workers in the Hunter Region. That’s why Youth Express is urging Hunter businesses to consider training local young people to feed current and future workforce needs.
Hunter businesses that link with Youth Express have greater access to young employees. Some businesses use our programs to assess the potential of young workers before they employ them. There are thousands of keen, local kids with an interest in your industry, ready to give it a go.
Involvement with Youth Express also offers excellent possibilities for networking and promoting your business to attract good quality, local candidates. Our programs give employers the chance to take part in developing a ‘work ready’ future workforce.
There’s different ways your business can partner with Youth Express:
host a student for a week’s work placement,
consider employing a School Based Apprentice or Trainee, or
come along to a career information event to promote your work.
Offering ‘real world’ training and mentoring experiences to young people helps them get a taste of what your industry is all about. This means young people will make informed career choices and know what to expect from their chosen job.
There are over 10,000 young people currently participating in courses that will help them get a trade or other job in metals, automotive, construction, electrical, retail, IT, hospitality and primary industry.
