Services for businesses and employers
We have a dedicated Employer Engagement Team that are committed to building relationships with employers to enable them to work with local cohorts of young people and adults.
Recruiting staff and vacancy matching
With a team of over 60 frontline advisers delivering over 10,000 careers interventions to over 3,000 young people and adults every year, C+K is ideally placed to match your vacancies with suitable candidates free of charge. Recruitment of new employees can be a time-consuming and expensive task. By working with C+K, we can develop tailored engagement programmes that raise awareness of vacancies and encourage applications.
Virtual work experience and raising awareness of your organisation
Our work experience offer allows employers to showcase their organisation to young people and link in with the workforce of the future. We are currently working with organisations to deliver virtual work experience, which allows young people to experience the world of work but ensure that they stay COVID-safe.
Advisers working in schools and colleges provide opportunities for employers to raise awareness of their organisation via mock interviews, careers events, or taking part in dragons' den-style enterprise events. Some companies use these opportunities to demonstrate their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and C+K can help develop activities for this purpose.
We also deliver The Nexus In-School project, a partnership between Kirklees Council and C+K to offer a range of extended work placements with local employers and a dedicated project officer to mentor and support students. Students will follow a comprehensive programme of personal and employability skills workshops during this one year programme.
In response to the rapidly evolving situation with the current COVID pandemic, whilst still recognising the importance of ensuring that young people still have access to valuable information about career options - in 2020 we started to deliver our progression events online. We offer businesses and employers the opportunity to exhibit at our events, if you would like more information, please get in touch.
Business advisory group
This group of employers works with us to assist C+K Board and Executive Team by offering strategic insight alongside practical advice around the delivery of careers programmes. This adds an employer voice to the labour market research and intelligence which underpins our careers products.
