Financial Incentive Scheme Introduced to Combat Youth Unemployment
At first glance, the spectre of Brexit and global economic concerns appear to be casting a shadow over business confidence in the UK. With manufacturing output declining at its fastest pace for three years and the overall level of sentiment plummeting, businesses appear more inclined to consolidate rather than invest heavily in their long-term growth.
The recruitment of younger employees is a particular area of concern, as this usually represents a significant investment that depends almost entirely on the suitability of each individual candidate and their ability to add value to businesses. So while we have seen overall unemployment levels fall to record lows recently, the number of younger adults out of work remains uncomfortably high and continues to rise in 2016.
