What is missing?

Part of the reason is young people have limited opportunity to gain experience.

Only a handful (6%) of UK companies offer internships to young people in education.
28%
Roughly a quarter (28%) of larger firms with 100+ employees recruit interns.
10%
Just 10% of employers provide work placements for university students.
1%
A minuscule 1% of businesses provide graduate programmes to recent graduates.

Result
No Experience.
No Job.
Millions of young people are stuck in a vicious ‘no experience — no job' cycle.
Manifesto Experience ∗ Skills ∗ Jobs ∗
  • You apply for stuff but you don't get anywhere because you don't have prior experience.
    Kate Goodrum, Age: 22
  • A lot of jobs require experience, but how are you supposed to get experience if it isn't given to you?
    Paige Burrell, Age: 20
  • You can't get the job without experience, but how do you get experience in the first place?
