Next Generation Jobs – Helping those aged 16 – 25 to find employment

A new jobs website launches this week with the exclusive aim of helping those aged 16 – 25 find employment. Next Generation Jobs claims to be the first site of its kind in the country and is packed with a host of entry level jobs to help school leavers, recent graduates and NEETS (not in education, employment or training) to get a foot on the career ladder.

The jobs search portal is utterly unique in that it only lists jobs that are suitable for 16 – 25 year olds. By focusing solely on entry level positions, Next Generation Jobs removes the stress of searching through traditional portals – most of which use frustrating advanced search functions and primarily return jobs that require years of prior experience or advanced qualifications.

Next Generation Jobs founder David Brett said, “Unemployment is still tremendously high among the 16 – 25 age group and we know that many struggle to find positions that are really suitable. It can be incredibly hard to find entry level jobs on traditional jobs boards and this makes it even more difficult to take the first steps on a new career path. Particularly for school leavers, the pressure can be immense and the resources available to them limited.”

“Through all of our research, the only service with the capability of bringing together entry level jobs and jobseekers we came across was Connexions but, since 2008 the government has cut funding by £100 million a year forcing many centres to close and leaving youngsters out of work with no specialist job seeking support network. I wanted to create a place where it doesn’t matter if you are a student, apprentice, young parent or a NEET. If you are aged between 16 and 25, all the jobs on our portal are suitable.”

The Next Generation Jobs site puts a twist on the usual job search process by allowing job seekers to post their CVs to boost visibility. In addition to applying for jobs, this gives candidates the best possible chance of securing a great new position by showcasing their talents and expertise to all recruiters, rather than the recruiter advertising the role being applied for. Employers can browse and search through all uploaded CVs, allowing businesses around the country unprecedented access to the nation’s young workforce. This makes it easy to source candidates and tap into the country’s youth expertise.

This two way communication system not only simplifies the recruitment process, it also makes it much more likely that those seeking work will find a position of employment.

The number of entry level jobs on the site is expected to increase by around 200 positions per day in the New Year. Current roles include vacancies such as administration assistant, receptionist assistant, accounting, health and beauty, construction, IT, catering and hospitality.
