Recruitment

The City of London Corporation and The Corbett Network are organising an employer event regarding the recruitment of people who have a criminal record. The conference takes place at the Mansion House, London on 23 September.

Over 11 million people in the UK have a criminal record. They possess a wide range of skills, qualifications and experience which employers need and from which they and their company can benefit.

BASE is one of 80 signatories to a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to drive forward a coordinated cross-departmental approach to tackling short-term and long-term youth unemployment to ensure that there will be no ‘lost generation'.

The 80 organisations have come together through the Youth Employment Group to warn that despite government efforts for youngsters to get the help that they need to get into work through investment in employment support, education, training and jobs, the challenge for young people is far from over.

Ambitious about Autism has launched a survey to gather more evidence and data about young people’s experiences of looking for work and employment – in areas such as job applications, interviews and careers advice. 

The Work and Pensions Committee has published a report on its inquiry into the Disability Employment Gap. BASE gave oral evidence to the committee and we welcome its findings.

Report

The Work and Pensions Committee has published its first inquiry report on DWP's preparation for changes in the world of work. The report calls on the Government to develop a comprehensive long-term strategy on how it will prepare for changes in the world of work brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

They say that technological changes in the workplace risk having an uneven impact on different groups of workers and the Government must be more proactive in planning ahead to avoid people being excluded from jobs and worker protections.

While the Committee concludes that it is not likely that new technology will lead to mass unemployment, it warns that the creation of new jobs and loss of others will be uneven across sectors and across different groups of workers.

The Government must ensure that any changes do not exacerbate existing inequalities, with younger people, disabled people, women, and people from some ethnic minorities particularly at risk of missing out on jobs.

Guidance

Youth Employment UK has now created a Kickstart Guide for Employers to help support and advise them to create a good quality Kickstart Programme for the Candidate.

This resource has been created by Youth Employment UK to support employers and gateway organisations looking to create Kickstart Programmes. We have consulted with the young people in our network to explore what a good Kickstart Programme would look like to them and have embedded their views into this guidance.

The Edge Foundation has published a Skills Shortage Bulletin tracking ongoing and emerging trends in the UK labour market. This edition includes a focus on green jobs and the digital sector, both of which have been at the centre of much of the discussion about future economic recovery.

Covid 19, is unsurprisingly a common theme in this edition. Notably, the latest research suggests that the pandemic has not necessarily created new challenges so much as accelerated existing ones.

The Institute for Employment Studies (IES) has published a briefing note with analysis of the Labour Market Statistics published this month. The analysis mainly draws on Labour Force Survey data covering September to November 2020, supplemented by analysis of Pay As You Earn Real Time Information data, the ONS Vacancy Survey and administrative data from the benefits system on Universal Credit and Jobseeker’s Allowance.
