Gloucestershire County Councils new website www.yes2jobs.co.uk is for businesses and organisations to register the opportunities they have available.

There are opportunities for businesses to build links with local schools and colleges to attract leavers into jobs reducing recruitment costs.

Cllr Mark Hawthorne, Leader of Gloucestershire County Council, said: So far weve seen a huge amount of interest from businesses who are interested in supporting this scheme.

I would urge any business that thinks it may have something to offer, whether its a weeks work experience, an apprenticeship right up to a full time job, to register on www.yes2jobs.co.uk.

University and County Council help graduates find work

The University of Gloucestershires new Degreeplus internship scheme, which gives students the opportunity to work on short-term projects in local businesses, is to receive funding from Gloucestershire County Council as part of its Youth Employment and Skills Strategy. The University has piloted internships for students in its own departments and is now hoping to encourage local companies to offer similar opportunities to students and graduates from other universities returning to the county.

Nicki Castello, Head of Careers at the University, said: Our students need to know about employment opportunities and to apply their skills in the real world.

Local employers need to know about the talent here which could help grow their business. Our new Degreeplus internship scheme is a means to address these needs and promote the retention of graduate talent in Gloucestershire.

The funding will enable local employers to receive a small grant to cover the interns travel and subsistence costs. The University will host a high-profile campus event in the summer, to bring together employers and graduates seeking work.
