Over the past two years the 5% Club members have made significant grounds in tackling youth unemployment and the UK’s skills shortage. Collectively the campaign’s members have created over 36,000 opportunities for young people in the shape of apprentice, graduate and sponsored student training schemes.

As the campaign progresses the diversity of sectors have broadened greatly and now include companies in a variety of sectors from law to marketing and aerospace to travel and leisure.

Businesses across different regions of the UK are also increasingly committing to the 5% club pledge. While there are 22 companies in London and 29 in the South East part of the campaign, there are also 5 in Scotland, 9 in Yorkshire and 1 in wales.

Today we are reflecting on the campaign’s success whilst encouraging other businesses to make the commitment to young people. As well as the large amount of young people unemployed in the UK, businesses are increasingly struggling to source the skills they need to grow their workforce and we truly believe that young people provide the answer to this dilemma.
