DYW Borders have launched a social media campaign that aims to encourage local businesses to invest in the work force of the future, using the hashtag #InvestInUs
The campaign, which will run throughout the month of July, encourages businesses to offer employability sessions, work placements, apprenticeships, or the opportunity for young people to work on live business projects. DYW Borders hope the campaign will highlight the benefits to businesses of investing in the next generation work force by raising awareness of job opportunities within their sectors and alternative career paths. National and local organisations who have already signed up include NHS Borders, the RSPB, CITB, Oregon and SBHA. Through the opportunities offered, young people will gain invaluable experience, development of essential skills, and an introduction to the world of work.
Businesses can access online resources to help promote the benefits of the campaign on their own social media, including an #InvestInUs printable sign and further information on the campaign by clicking below.
