Recruitment & Training specialists respond to rising under-25 unemployment levels with remote training solutions and mentoring

Bradstone Allington, a specialist recruitment and training provider serving the UK labour market, has launched a proactive solution to tackle rising youth unemployment figures in the form of remote training and recruitment opportunities.


With the number of under 25s out of work accounting for two-thirds of total unemployment figures, the recruitment and training specialists at Bradstone Allington have been exploring ways to best meet the needs of younger workers looking to secure a foot on the career ladder. The first stage in that process will see it make a wide range of career mentoring and training courses available remotely to those seeking employment.

Committed to helping graduates entre the labour market at the end of their full-time academic careers, Bradstone Allington has seen a spike in demand for further online training as those seeking to secure their first full-time job reassess the ever-changing UK recruitment landscape.

With Covid-19 resulting in tens of thousands of job losses across a variety of industry sectors, experts have warned that youth unemployment could reach 1m without concerted action. Figures suggest the majority of 16 to 24-year-olds out of work have being unemployed for more than six months.

In response to these worrying figures, the team at Bradstone Allington is urging graduates looking for employment opportunities to take advantage of its Work Placement Programmes. The specialist schemes combine mentorship, practical training and real-life work experience, giving job seekers a competitive edge in a highly uncertain labour market.

Not only does the company have the ability to connect job seekers with work placement opportunities, but its time served team of recruitment experts is also on hand to offer expert career advice and remote training options for those looking to improve their chances of employment with further personal development.

Marketing Manager James Allington said “With more than 30 years working alongside employers in HR, accounting, IT, law and digital marketing, we want to support those looking to kickstart their careers in these industries despite the challenging conditions facing job seekers right now.

“With a surge of interest for strong candidates in accounting and human resources and new remote training opportunities on offer that offer real practical skills to boost employability, we want to send out a clear message to young graduates struggling to find employment that it’s not all doom and gloom. Our team is here to offer tailored support and practical advice along with training and access to work experience opportunities.”
