Commenting on the UK unemployment statistics showing more than one million young people out of work, Managing Director of Manpower UK, Mark Cahill said:
“It’s all too easy to just gloomily sink our heads into our hands but there are still opportunities for young people with the right attitude.
“We are helping young people into work every day and have thousands of open vacancies for others showing a real desire and determination to work.
“Employers continue to look for skilled and motivated candidates, so those willing to take work experience and learn new skills are those who will succeed in this challenging environment.
“Those with a ‘refuse to lose’ attitude will find work.”
