Future Proof is a Business in the Community (BITC) campaign backed by the City & Guilds Group. The campaign helps employers break down the barriers in recruitment processes to create quality, accessible jobs for all young people. The campaign provides practical resources for employers to modernise recruiting young people to meet the future needs of their business.
Employers need an open and accessible approach to employment that is fit for the next generation. Recruitment processes need to be transparent and attractive to young people, no matter what their background or experience. Ensuring that you offer good jobs with opportunities for development and clear progression pathways will drive innovation and connect with a diverse future customer base.
Offering quality experience of work, adopting new approaches to recruitment and breaking down barriers to entering work for people from disadvantaged groups can benefit business by tackling skills shortages, building new talent pipelines, boosting retention rates and achieving higher productivity.
