Event description

Description

Young people have found it increasingly difficult to find good quality employment when they leave education. What kinds of jobs do they get? What do employers do to engage with them? And are ethnic inequalities for young people diminishing?

To answer these questions we are organising a discussion with employers and researchers from the ESRC funded research on ‘Precarious pathways to employment for young people’ and an EU funded project on youth employment STYLE.

Prof Kate Purcell will discuss the opportunities and obstacles encountered by young job-seekers; Prof Melanie Simms will look at how employers engage with employing young people, and Prof Jacqueline O'Reilly will look at how ethnic inequalities are changing for young people in the UK.

A roundtable of employers will discuss the kinds of opportunities they offer, the challenges they face and what they are looking for in their young workforce.

This event is intended for both employers interested in actively engaging young people as part of their future workforce, as well as for young people interested in discussing their future options.

Details of the research informing this event are available here: Precarious pathways to employment for young people http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/ier/research/pathways/about/
