One in every two recent UK graduates are either jobless or working in non-graduate roles.
 Based on official figures pubished by the national statistics institute of the United Kingdom. See: Office for National Statistics (25 May 2016) Percentage of graduates working in non-graduate roles in London and the UK: 2011 to 2015. Reference number 005742.
This is partly because more than half of UK employers think recent graduates lack work experience and soft skills and are therefore unprepared for work.
 Based on a large-scale survey of 2,885 businesses across the UK. See: British Chambers of Commerce (2014) Workforce Survey 2014
However university students and recent graduates have limited opportunities to gain hands-on work experience and transferable skills.
As a consequence, millions of young people are stuck in a ‘no experience, no job — no job, no experience’ cycle. This is an alarming problem for the whole of society. We offer a simple yet effective remedy.Learn About Our Cause
